Well, there must be new V's everywhere since there is one here. Was a small ad in local paper with a name and number and $79.990 or something. I figured what dealer and sure enough it was there. Sold of course and locked up! Salesman said it was first out here and hadn't been presold. Black with neutral interior, 6 speed and sunroof. Regular seats. Guy said it took a few days before it sold. They won't be getting another for a while. Sure looks like a nice car but sitting on the showroom floor it certainly looks large. My little V1 looked tiny by comparison.

That must have been the Black one at Jack Carters? I went and looked at it, nice ride. Not in love with the interior colour.

Congrats Rgp6373! I wonder how many lifted diesels are gonna try to race you.

Aren't you tempted to put some Sottozeros on it so you could at least take it out for a spin on nice days (above 0 C)? :D

I stand corrected! Where are you going to be able to drive it? I would imagine the road up to Ft. MacMurray is pretty pounded up. How long before the road twinning is done? I would think a few years. I've only been to Ft. MacMurray twice and I flew in on my way to Uranium City and back.
700HP truck? Tell me more.

depending on weather im hoping for the end of march to get it on the road , the twining will be a few years if we are lucky . as for my truck its a 2003 silverado ss with a 408 ci stroker motor supecharged , headers , exhaust , custom tune 4L80E built trans and alot more lol cant wait to race them . i think the truck will take the v out of the hole then at about 100mph the v will blow by and not look back
