Chevrolet Performance Presents HOT ROD Power Tour Driven by Continental Tire.

Trucks are really just muscle cars in bigger boxes, let's be honest. Rear-wheel-drive, a big V8, and a tough transmission are the usual kit, and it doesn't take much to wake one of those iron giants up with a little extra horsepower. Even better is that most people consider them as valuable as a pocket knife, they're tools to the masses and thus there's much less chance of hate for "ruining" something "rare" in order to make something rowdy and unique.

While the recent trend is in 60s and 70s muscle trucks, pick-ups have often been popular hot rodding platforms for those very reasons. They offer a similar foundation for often much, much less money than a typical muscle car and you can haul a 4x8 sheet of plywood home while haulin' ass. What's not to love?
