The Superman Tribute Truck I got it in 2002. I got to thinking because of the color that it would look cool with Superman stuff on it because I am such a Superman Buff. This truck was for show not racing. I showed it at local shows and Charity events. It had alot of different Superman Stuff, Check out the Mods for more.
The Superman Tribute Truck was featured on The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation Website and had won a total of 9 trophy's.

Powertrain Options and Availability
A 195-horsepower 4.3-liter V6 was the sole engine at first, driving a 4-speed automatic transmission. The Vortec V6 introduced in 1996 developed five fewer horsepower and 10 fewer pound-feet of torque (peaking at lower rpm than before). Not until late in the 1996 model year did a 5-speed manual transmission become available, in 2-door models, as a credit option.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) tests a vehicle's crashworthiness in front- and side-impact collisions and rates its resistance to rollovers. Front-impact crash-test numbers indicate the chance of serious injury: 5 = 10% or less; 4 = 10-20%; 3 = 20-35%; 2 = 35-45%; 1 = More than 45%. Side-impact crash-test numbers indicate: 5 = 5% or less; 4 = 6-10%; 3 = 11-20%; 2 = 21-25%; 1 = More than 26%. Rollover resistance numbers indicate the chance for rollover when the vehicle leaves the roadway: 5 = Less than 10%; 4 = 10-20%; 3 = 20-30%; 2 = 30-40%; 1 = More than 40%.
