  • GM won the war. None of these trucks stock could touch the Syclone/Typhoon. I'd love to build a clone of one. But I already have a 92 Dakota 2wd with the 318. That'd be pretty neat with a turbo huh?

  • I remember GM giving our dealership no choice. We had to accept a syclone. Bitch took forever to sell. Then the ‘90 454SS sold well, but owners were pissed when they discovered the new 1991’s had a four speed automatic. We hotrodded a few, but they still weren’t that fast.

  • Worked at a car dealership in the early 90's. A white Shelby Dakota showed up on the lot and I was told to use it to run some errands... Wow! I wanted to buy THAT one. All that torque in a little lightweight truck, with what felt like a Gil Younger shift kit that firmly "banged" into gear like a drag car, also with a sweet handling package, you could drift that truck at will, it was a BLAST to drive! They sold it several times, customers kept bringing it back because it scared them! Then an SS 454 truck showed up on the lot and I had to use it to run an errand... What a SNORE. I couldn't believe it when I punched the gas pedal on that pig. I was expecting something better than the Dakota, but it was just a big, fat, bad handling, gas guzzling disappointment. The ONLY thing that ever landed on the lot was possibly more fun to drive than the Shelby Dakota was a 300 HP, twin turbo Stealth RT. Other honorable mentions go to a gutted, short wheelbase turbo Caravan that could have been a drag car, and a Chevy Beretta GTZ. We never did get a Viper at that lot, but if we had, I'm pretty sure they wouldn't have let drive it, since I was wasn't rich enough to buy it if I wrecked it, plus I was too young at the time, and burnouts were impossible for my younger self to resist & I think they knew that.

  • I had a 1992 dodge Dakota with the magnum 318, it was extremely over powered, in the rain you could break the wheels loose even driving 45. I had a 22 foot pontoon boat, that truck slung it around like nothing. I pulled a 32 foot camper from the woods sitting on flat tires.

  • I used to go to the Dallas street races off Luna Road back in the early 90s, and there was so many fast and exotic cars, but the fastest thing out there was a modded GMC Syclone. The next fastest car out there was probably a Mitsubishi Eclipse... The modded AWD cars would usually embarrass the awesome looking and sounding trailered muscle cars, and the rare and exotic imports.

  • Sorry but the syclone actually beat the 348 in the 1/4 that's why it was the fastest truck ever built. In fact I don't think another truck has beat it's time in the 1/4. If I am wrong correct me. My dad owned one. It was the 60th one of the line. Wish he still had it cause I would have bought it off him. And I'm a Ford guy lol

  • Talk about your glaring errors! Not only do you have to make it halfway through this video before there is any mention of a performance truck, but the Barracuda shown at 3:43 is a 67 model. Not even close to the Mustang II immediately preceding it as an example of limited performance. Sure, it has a slant six, but the Mustang and the Camaro both had 6 cylinder base engines in 67. Chrysler managed to squeeze a 383 into the engine bay in 67 and found a little more in the next year with the 426 Hemi. All in the same A body package you mistakenly thought was a low performance, catalytic converter equipped smog era vehicle.
