Price isnt all that bad.
Not at all considering I got my SS/T with 110k for $5,200 and this syclone has 56k.

Ahhhh, the Cyclone, thats one quick little truck...There is or was a couple around town back home. Always thought they were cool as hell. Actually, came close to racing one long ago, but the guy babied it and didnt want to mess anything up (coulda been that he was a little scared of the big block I had under the hood) Who knows, still a sweet little truck

I'd baby it aswell, quite rare, about 2k made between 91' & 92' I believe. But that doesn't mean i'd take it easy ALL the time Lol. They put the turbo in there for a reason...

Gosh, insurance would probably be less than what it is now lol. Smaller truck, smaller engine. We can leave out the whole turbo thing

Basically ontop of the blistering acceleration, the rarity factor is still there, a tad more produced than the Black ss/t's. I also would die for 4x4, and the syclone has that!
Insurance company would know what it is as soon as you give them the serial number .

While I think the typhoons and cyclones are cool....but, maybe I'm just different, but, no matter what way you put it, its a V6...and, even sounds like a v6...lol
Plus, for the money, you could make your ss/t faster, and handle just as good (sway bars and all).
Also...I'm not a Chevy guy...so that may be my bias...haha.

Plus...not to scare you, but, turbo engines are a whole different ball game. I own one, and its always something...especially the older ones that have had time to deteriorate some things...and, even though it has 56k miles...I bet those were a hard 56k miles

But...its all what you're into.

Yeah, I just wonder what it would be, seeing as there is a 5.9 V8 there now.

Lol true, I guess I just was born into the GM fam.
Realistically, I doubt i'll get rid of this truck for a LONG TIME. I love it a lot, its a blast to drive even if its 6200lbs Lol. The SS/T is far less of an eyesore than the squared off syclone.

Just the sheer sleeper quality of the syclone is awesome, Lol who is going to think that nasty s10 looking thing would get to 60 in 4.6sec stock?
