    I had been looking for months and found some duds. But stumbled across this one in North Austin at CarMax.

    This is a 2011 Chevrolet Colorado. Think S-10 replacement. Midsize pickup. produced from 2004, I think, to 2012. 2009 to 2012 they built w small, and I mean small, production run with a V8 and sport suspension. The numbers are not out and official, but in 2009 out of almost 18K Colorados there were built--141 extended cab and 151 crew cabs with a V8 and sport suspension. When I say rare, it is a gem considering most were red, blue, or black. White was not produced that much.

    This thing was ordered with every option from what i can tell. Only thing not on the RPO code list was a sun roof. Not 100% sure they offered a sun roof in 2011 models.

    Ebony leather interior, Heated front seats, bluetooth. 300hp 320lbft tq in a mid size pickup. Fun factor is a 10+.

    Just thought I would share my find with the local nuts.

    Neat! Those are quite rare! Needs a cam, bolt ons, and tune, and you'll be in the 12s no problem

    The S10 platform quit being sold in the states in 2005, so I'm thinking that's when those trucks were phased in-but I could be wrong. I didn't realize they quit making em or that they had the V8 option. Very nice.

    Nice find. If you want a small cam, I've got a couple extras sitting in the garage from days of old ;) One is a 218/224, the other 220/224 @ 0.50" if memory serves.

    Good little cams.. I think the TSP 220R would seriously wake that thing up too. Throw the stall in from a trailblazer... well then you've got quite the little monster

    beat me to it, i was thinking about the 5 cyl, wonder if that had to do with the CO's failure to catch on.. know one problem was the price, instead of a reasonable number like the S-10, the CO was an expensive truck, and very high bucks in base mode.. we co signed for our daughter on a 04 4.3 stretch cab 1500, that if i remember was only like 3k more than the CO.. So this thing was super high ticket when it was sold..

    the rarity of that will make it's value sky high in a few years.. keep the miles down Freak.. your driving your retirement ..
