It still needs more power. Not bad looking though. It cuts a fine figure in front of DEI, though a Monte Carlo would seem more apropriate.

they have a MC version also IIRC...it's a nice truck, just needs a boost of power, throw the LS2 in it or something...it's still got the same 345 from the SS...

The event included thousands of Earnhardt and DEI fans who make the visit to the race shop each year for "Dale Earnhardt Day" commemorating the racing legend's birthday.<p>"We are very proud of the long-time association between Chevrolet and the Earnhardt family," said Ed Peper, Chevrolet general manager. "Dale's legacy is unique within racing, and we are excited about this opportunity to offer fans a vehicle they can so closely identify with one of their heroes."<p>The Intimidator SS is based on a well-equipped 2006 Silverado SS featuring the GM's Vortec 6000 V-8, which pumps out 345 horsepower (257 kw) and 380 lb.- ft. (515 Nm) of torque. It will also feature a performance-tuned suspension, two-stage multi-leaf springs, Tenneco shock absorbers, a stiffer front stabilizer bar and stiffer front jounce bumpers.<p>Its exterior scheme begins with a lowered ride height and a striking black monochromatic color highlighted with 'Intimidator' badging on the tailgate and doors, a unique race-inspired tailgate spoiler and a unique silver front grille insert. The Intimidator SS also has 20-inch chrome wheels.<p>The interior boasts a black leather steering wheel with the Dale Earnhardt Legacy logo embroidered on the front headrests with optional dark charcoal leather seating surfaces. Other features include Dale Earnhardt's signature on the white, backlit gauge cluster, the 'Intimidator' badge on the instrument panel and floor mats with the 'Intimidator' script.<p>Other features consistent with the 2006 Chevy Silverado SS include a 4- speed electronically controlled transmission, 3.73 final drive ratio, locking differential, cruise control, rear defogger, keyless entry, cloth split bench seats, power seat adjuster, steering wheel radio controls, power windows, engine oil cooler, transmission oil cooler and rear-wheel, 2-wheel rear drive.<p>The Silverado Intimidator SS is the sixth signature edition vehicle offered by Chevrolet and is considered by some fans to be the ultimate in NASCAR-themed collectibles. Previous editions were: the 2002 Dale Earnhardt Signature Edition Monte Carlo (3,333 units); the 2003 Jeff Gordon Signature Edition Monte Carlo (2,424 units); the 2004 Monte Carlo Intimidator SS (4,000 units); the 2004 Dale Earnhardt Jr. Signature Series Supercharged SS Monte Carlo (2,883 units); and the 2005 Tony Stewart Signature Series Supercharged SS (1,020 units.)<p>Chevrolet will make a donation from the sale of the Silverado Intimidator SS to the Dale Earnhardt Foundation, a charity specifically chosen by the Earnhardt family. The foundation is committed to carrying on Earnhardt's legacy and the charitable causes he supported during his lifetime. Chevrolet has already donated more than $1 million from the five previous signature edition models.<br></TD></TR></TABLE>

I remeber seeing the signature, Gordon, and Earnhardt Jr. editions, but none of the others. I guess they had them though. Of course all of the ones I just listed except for the Signature looked horrible and tacky in my opinion.

I like that grill. But the embroidered seat has GOT to go! It's a truck, not a rolling memorial!<br>(No flames please, I miss the guy too.) <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0">

What better way to remember ol' Dale than to... rest the back of your head on him. <p>I think the seat is overkill too. <p>And I liked the grill at first, but now that Nick mentioned chicken wire, it's all I see.

Yes, I think Nick just ruined this grill for me too. Thanks buddy. Thanks a lot. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Come to think of it, I'm getting tired of all the DE rolling memorials. Yeah, he raced cars and was a mercurial personality. But can't we all just trim our mullets, peel the "3" off our rear windows and move on with our lives?!

lol...sorry guys, but how much more redneck can you get? I mean, not only is the truck dedicated to a nascar driver, but the fact that GM used chicken wire for grill inserts just screams redneck!
