In 1992, the Sonoma GT was the second best option if you werent able to afford a Syclone or a Typhoon. Part of the Sportmachines trio (Syclone, Typhoon, Sonoma GT) and unlike the Syclone, the Sonoma GT came in a variety of colors and had the similar styling to the Syclone with similar body cladding and almost identical interior but lacked two major key elements, a turbo and an AWD system. Instead, the Sonoma GT was outfitted with the standard naturally aspirated 4.3 V6 and was driven by 2WD, thus making it no faster than your standard Sonoma but still awarding you the cool factor points with people mistakingly thinking you actually did buy a Syclone. With only 806 units produced, the Sonoma GT does get crowned as the rarest truck available of the Sportmachines.

Formalities aside, this Sonoma GT, known better as Syborg TT is not your average truck….and it’s available to purchase if you have the funds or interesting trade that the fits the current owners taste – a mint Typhoon is on his list of desired vehicles.  Not a damn thing wasnt touched on this build as it was stripped 100% down and completely rebuilt with the goal of SEMA in mind. Goal achieved as it made it to Las Vegas once completed and took the truck world by storm with various magazine features and coverage.

I will list links to the build and articles.. Thousands of pictures of this build. The original builder told me it was a $280,000 build at the time and no expense was spared. It’s still in excellent shape was has hardly been driven.

Please look at the pics and the articles.. They really don’t do the truck justice as it looks even better in person than in the photos.
