In a recent CarCast podcast, co-host Matt D’Andria bought a 1995 Ford F-150 Lightning equipped with a Ford Motorsports supercharger and brought it to Gale Banks to run it through its paces on the dyno and gather some data.
Before the action starts, the GMC Syclone is brought up in conversation and Gale briefly speaks about some of the story behind the LSR (Land Speed Record) Syclone and how it came to be along with some edited in footage of the LSR at Bonneville being shown.
Of course, Gale goes on to let Matt know that the Syclone was much faster than the Gen 1 Lightning (he’s right you know!) which Matt leads into mentioning that Jay Leno owns a Syclone and tells the famed Christmas tree story of how Jay bought a Syclone in order to haul his Xmas tree home.
So does Matt have a SyTy slaying Lightning in which he so desires to have? Watch to find out, you may be surprised at the results!
