what it was, but OMFG!!

Coming back from Thorpe Park a few weeks back, I saw and heard some sort of pick up truck. Im pretty sure it was American, no license plates, plus it was bright red.

We were in my mates BMW, which can shift, but this hit about 80 in no time at all and sounded like a fighter jet whilst doing so. It had a rounded cab, was brand spanking new . . . and I want one!!

It must have been a Chevvy or something similar. Id love to see a pic of it, I know Im being a bit vague, but it was moving so fast that I could hardly see it.

Ring a bell with anyone??

Had a look at some pics, similar to the Chevy SSR, but beefier looking, might have even been one of those with a kit on. Was not a drop-top either, if it was, it had a metal roof.

There has to be one American truck buff amoungst us . . . ??

If it was that, no suprise! It runs 11s on the quartermile. Could have been a Dodge Ram SR T10? These big trucks are mentally quick...

I borrowed a mates Toyota Tundra 4.7 V8 when I was last in Canada and good god does it shift. Its bigger than a Range Rover (you look down on everyones roof from the cab) and it just FLYs. Unbelievable...

How old do I feel now! The Fall Guy was only the coolest, brown pick up driving, unknown stuntman ever.

Do a google search, you'll see what I mean then.

Im only just 20, Fall Guy means nothing to me. The cab section was virtually like a quarter-circle shape, it roared like hell, has a very small badge on the back right, looked a lot like 'V12' but I wouldnt promise.

For something that must weigh about as much as a small country, i was so shocked at how fast it moved.

Here is achallenge, as I said, it looked like a Chevrolet SS-R, but the pics on www.chevrolet.com look way too tame, can anyone find some modded pucs?? Ive trawled the web to no avail.

Maybe one for mikedav?? You seem to have pics of every car ever made . . . lol . . . !!

I don't know if this helps you at all, but the SSR is a hardtop convertible. I've seen a few, but I cannot say I've ever really heard one. Wouldn't doubt them to be loud though, part of the whole classic muscle image. Was it the size of one of our small pick ups, a regular size or contractor/red-neck size? Doubt that it is anything Ford puts out, I live ten minutes away from the truck factory in KC, everything coming out of the is angular, not round.

Easy old boys!! Let's not turn this into a assault on my knowledge of pre 1940s Television!!

LOL! Television? You had a television? We had to look through a hole cut in the side of a box with a picture stuck inside. [;)]
