Very impressive

but tiny breaks for 400hp.!!

Maybe mental 0-60 but back to 0 won't be impressive

Holden, unless of course Vauxhall have released a pickup version of the Monaro VXR, either that or Cookee's had the angle grinder out

I'm impressed by everyone's car kinowledge - it's a Holden SS Ute - the wheels are uprated 18's from the standard 17's.

YOu can't see it in the photo but it's not plain black - it has a little metalflake in it.

It's the pickup or Ute version of the Menaro, so spares are from a Vauxhall dealer for most things - it's got upprated throttle body, stainless headers, exhaust and a sports cat, and it's had the computer remapped, and the brakes work just fine!

It'll be in Ramsgate this weekend if everything goes to plan!

Looks great Cookee. I test drove the full bodied (car) version of it here where it's known as the GTO. 6ltr 400hp Corvette moter and very quick. The best part of the test drive was when at a stoplight the guy next to us in a pickup rolled down his window and yelled "light em up"!

Was very close to buying it but went all sensible and bought a Dodge Magnum Hemi.

Have to admit though, the local Dodge dealer has a red SRT10 pickup with a manual 6 speed that has caught my eye..............

Your link is knackered Ben!

I was actually looking at the Chevvy 2 seat convertable pick up, but I have never fancied a left hooker and I came across one of these, did some digging and found the one for me! I think I'm going to have a lot of fun with this thing!
