2003 Ford Lightning Svt — Fast as you know what. Can blow away any new mustang. Fastest production truck made. What else is there to say? The only problem is there isn't enough weight in the back and you can burn the tires off all day long... maybe that isn't bad? The interior is semi-lame. Should have a lot more options such as heated seats and premium leather bucket seats. Amazing I just bought one and I love it, makes me feel like a BA once again!

Pros

It is a sports car person's dream. . . but it's a truck!

Cons

You know its a supercharged V8 whether it's because of its fuel consumption, or because of the police following you around.

Powerful — I like everything about it for the most part. The things I dislike have to do with the nature of the vehicle rather than a flaw in its design. An example of this is how the interior is limited to two/three people max. It is a sports vehicle though, so it is to be expected.
