Ford Lightning

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Lightning

The Ford SVT Lightning is a sports/performance version of the F-150 Pickup truck designed by Ford's truck-division and eventually released and marketed by the then-new SVT (Special Vehicle Team) division. The F-150 Lightning was conceived as a product focus for the personal-use possibilities of the Ford F-Series pick-up truck, combining outstanding handling, comfortable ride, and spirited acceleration.

I prefer the First gen over the 2nd.  Just a cool truck.


First Gen - 1993-1995 - 5.8L V8 - 240HP/340 ft-lbs



Second Gen - 1999-2004 - 5.4L Supercharged V8 - 360/380HP - 440/450 ft-lbs

First gen for me, too. To most people it's just another redneck rust mobile. I like it.
