When the light turned green, I pressed the gas pretty hard... I was accelerating pretty fast... then suddenly ... i look in my rear view mirror, in what looks to me as a Ford Explorer. I was like... I can take this thing..so i gun it... Then out of nowhere he guns it like crazy ( i thought he was already gunning it) This is insane...Then, as he is passing me... (really quickly by the way... i was at about 90 and he was at probably 105) .. I see that its not an Explorer... but a Ford Lightning. Damn... i never knew they went that fast. Thats just crazy.


( He burned Me solid... but then when i looked at the stats...it will rocket to 60 mph in under six seconds.) ... I now have a new thinking for pickups

Dang a Lightning huh? Haha, those things are damn fast! That musta really surprised the hell outta you. WTF? Why is an Explorer gaining on me? I woulda been thinking the same thing if that happened to me.

This truck was actually on my initial buying list (then again, so was many other cars). I have not encounter one in real life, but I am not planing to take one on. I guess you can now call this the American Muscle Trucks.

IMO, a truck is a truck....main purpose it to haul big things.

it might be fast and all, but speed and performance is meant for the 2dr/4dr coupes and sedans.

plust it's a ford. YUK!

You have to remember the size of the engines they're putting in those trucks.....at least 5 liter, maybe 6,7, or even 8 liter engines!!! Plus their advantage of light weight (pickups)

Like Agent Smith said, take them to windy roads and see who can handle them better.....

damn.. this is weird. I saw the same guy today... only this time... he flashed me to stop at a mobil station. He got and said... damn... nice car...then i said.. damn... fast truck... We both were like.. yea. Anyway.. hez like... I think I want to trade in my truck for the IS... I told him to go to Rallye. Weird. But, do you think that Lexus will want a Pickup truck to hold onto from a trade-in?

If they don't want it, they'll just wholesale it.
