When the trucks first came out in 1991, my familys business was exporting to Japan, and we had one customer that purchased a couple of them. The GMC Sylone had a short run, of only really one year. There were a couple of 1992's, but just a few. For 1992 GM released the GMC Typhoon. The Typhoon was the SUV version of the Sylone. A little more practical than a turbocharged all wheel drive pickup that doesn't haul anything but ass.

Sometime, I think it was around 1997-1998, I got a GMC Syclone. It had some issues, had been repainted gunmetal grey, missing driveshaft and some other pieces. I drove that for a while, hurt the engine, rebuilt it once. Broke the trans a few times. The last time I broke it, I parked it, and its been parked since. Both trucks need some fixing, and some motivation to actually do it. My involvement with the Skyline GT-R, took a lot of my time, and money. Now I need to start working on them again.
