On the spoiler, my moms Silverado's rear end would start wanting to lift off the ground when it got close to 100 mph. I'm guessing the spoiler is a good thing if you decide to push the SRT10 to 150+ mph.

That, and it doesn't look half bad to me.
That's an insult to muscle cars everywhere. :P I think you're missing the point. Trucks are built for work, that's their purpose in life. Damn engineers can't even build a real truck anymore... Spoiler... On a truck... Who would even... Some people's children...

Went and did some off roading, in my truck because that's what trucks are for, in the mountains just east of where I live. It was a lot of fun and gorgeous today.

I didn't know I was supposed to take pictures of them... I thought the mountains were more fun to look at

Fastest Honda I have driven is the NSX (OK, its an Acura here in the US, but its still a Honda). Those are damned impressive supercars. I never have understood why Honda didn't maintain the model. I mean WTF? It was just about perfect. Even Gordon Murray, the designer of the McClaren F1 Supercar marveled at the NSX, much of his design was based on the car and his first choice for powering it was with a Honda engine. Unfortunately Honda declined and they went with second choice BMW power. I have had a supercharged NSX up to 120 on local roads in a heartbeat. Feels like 55 in any other car.

Speaking of feeling like you are going slow- here is a great video from Top Gear- fastest production car on the planet. 267 MPH. Still has A/C and a bad ass stereo system.

There's talk of bringing the NSX back.

the Dodge Ram SRT10 truck is not your normal everyday type of truck. it's a sports truck! and the wing is functional on that truck. i saw a program a couple of years ago on the SRT10 truck that they tested with and without the wing. without the wing the backend got loose at higher speeds.

and trucks have evolved over the years to the point that they now have as many or more luxury features as cars do. for over the past ten years, IIRC, trucks have been over 50% of all types of new vehicle sales. and the STR10 can still be used like a truck because it still has towing capacity of over 7000 lbs. no it's not your everyday work truck, but it's still a truck, just a very special and very fast one!
