I'm watching a local tv news station coverage of the Detroit Auto Show, while on the forum, and they just announced that Dodge has a V10 Viper engine powered pick up truck on display at the show. They claim 1/4 mile in less than 13.0 seconds, and it has a 6 speed floor shift along with Vipe disc brakes.

I will report more after visiting the show next week.

Zippy :z: :z:

Not being a particular fan of trucks for anything other than utility ... All I can say is :puke:

Seems like lots of companies are trying for power and speed, but leave out the class.

Having said that I don't wish to be offensive to truck lovers everywhere, so please forgive me?!

:cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

So what do you think a Chevy Cyclone or GMC Typhoon is then?

Unless this is a trick question ... I assume they're are trucks??????

Gwelland... I'm sorry... I figured my silliness might be somewhat offensive to someone... I didn't mean it to be...:(

Just don't care for trucks.

What did they do, put sand bags in the bed to get it to hook up?

Yah, those typhoons and cyclones are bad mama jama's. I like to find one, haven't seen one since Florida and that was 8 years ago.

Most Tyhones are parked due to the fact they are out of warrenty,the axles are not designed for full time 4 wheels drive--like 12-30,000 miles between new axles.And they never did run as quick as Buick GN's.

Its unbelieveable that they would make a 12.9 second Truck. That is awesome. I have had 4 Syclones, still have one, and never thought I would see any production truck that fast. I love it. Would make a great tow vehicle for the Viper. Too bad I don't need one. hahaha

Here a shot of my sole survivor Syclone. I took it to the track last year. It is bone stock down to the factory air cleaner and tires. It ran a 13.5 at 98 mph.

I LIKE IT! :) While I wouldn't buy the Dodge, I do like the idea and it is a step in the right direction, although lagginf behind Ford and GM. If it were a retro version of an old '55 truck then I would be the first in line! One can only hope that someone builds a performance remake of those old trucks. Bill :cheers:

I think the trucks cool, I still don't like the 18 wheeler look of the Dodges. I think I'll keep my Lightning:D
