    Well it is faster, and is a truck. Ours still is the fastest "full sized" truck. At least until they come out with a Ram Hellcat. Then we are screwed.

    When you are in a 10 you are NEVER screwed. :chain:

    There will never be another 10, yes something faster but that is always the case with any car/truck. Enjoy the best truck every built of sell it----to me as a back up. :D

    Nope, an El Camino ain't like one of our trucks but man did I have fun with my '71 powered by a 360 CDI. Not as fast as our 10's but for the day it was fast enough and loads of fun. As I recall I carried just about the same amount of cargo in it as I have my 10----zero. :burnout:

    We will be screwed as in not being the fastest full size truck. Then what, we will be the fastest V10 powered truck?

    Nah, the '10 will be the last hot-rod truck Detroit ever build without traction control, stability control, or any other computer controlled self preservation devices. The SRT10 has never been the fastest or quickest vehicle on the road. But, at least in my mind, it is the very last true muscle car.

    I actually like them, would do about 85-90% of what I use my truck for while being faster and getting better fuel mileage.

    IF this happens I'm afraid I won't be interested in your VCA Wes:( I'll have to order one. I'm really hoping that ford,GM and dodge all come back out with ''sport'' trucks!:rock:
