That is so cool......it's like a G8 El Camino with a 6.0 liter! GRRRR!

I love your prostar, but your car would look perfect towing Freddie's Nightmare Prostar!

Pretty much spot on there bud. Chevy USA did have it in the pipeline to be released as a new age el camino. It's a rocket ship. I've done a fair few mods to it. Running 516rwhp. Will be sad to see it go.

I was a little concerned about how my Tundra would do towing it. It's got the 5.8L and tow package and is rated over 10,000 pounds. The boat is 5,550 plus the trailer. No problems there. But I was worried it might not have enough traction, especially if the tires got wet, to pull it up the ramp. But it did great.

Now the question is whether to have the dealer install a Wetsounds 420EQ while they have it in the shop. Hmm....
That looks like a shop on Smith Lake. That where you usually boat?

Just got a new ride, love it so far, miles and miles ahead of my '07. I was a bit apprehensive but after getting it all the doubts are long gone.
