the SRT 10 in your post is a truely a rage ...
i once saw a Black SRT 10 smoke a heavily modded Prelude to dust (coz the prelude wasnt letting him pass )....
the growl was deeper than a viper ... i couldnt keep up cause i was in 160 bhp intrepid .haha..

oh and btw has anybody watched the the Parish Pick up video ? where this guy parish has a 10 second pick up ...which outdrags everything modded on the road ..

cheers

Talking

its got to be the lightning. being the fastest production pickup ever. what an absolute beast!!

in fact bangalore has two of the tata pickups modified to look like these.
one is rede in colour and once is white. both look awesome only thing lacking is the power!!!

fellas, finally a post about a segment closest to my heart .. A couple of auto expo's ago ford india had displayed the yellow pick up truck ( the one from bay watch ) which was meant to b launched back then and I was all ready to b one of the first buyers but sadly with no explanation they shelved the idea and it just vanished withoput a whimper.. Probably they felt India wasn't ready for this segment ..wonder when it wil b ?? After taht came the launch of the Tata 207 di ... sadly didnt live up to the expectation !! Test drove it , but just doesnt have the oomph to it .... even asa farm vehicle its not too gud , the Mahindra pick up is far better fun to drive ...

I keep praying for some company to launch some thing similar to these .... SOOON !!

I for sure will be one customer .... !!

cheers

Whoa! Dodge pickups in Pune?? I am crazy about pickups myself! Can you please tell me where you saw the Yank trucks? As pickup trucks are strictly American stuff, I am not too taken to the Jap competition. Love the American ones with their big pushrod engines and throaty growls.

I know how it feels.
SUVs, pickups and all excite me more then any car orth 50L (we are not talking of Ferraris and Lambos and Porsches).
My fav. is the ford F150 Lightning pick up truck or one converted into a monster truck.
