I saw one of those pull a 10-sec quarter mile, then drive home. Completely stock appearing too. Awesome.

Take an extra week and make sure it has a 6-speed

SCORE! And double bonus points for saving it from becoming a donk. If you put a 6-speed in it I think it would redeem 4 or 5 donks in the neighborhood from sheer excess badassness. Well done.

Same here. I was like "ya right"............and then "Oh, you are right". Pretty cool.

How's the interior?

I've never been a fan of GM. And my mom always said if you can't say anything nice.............
But I've always wanted one of those cars.
Does it run and drive? If you don't mind my asking, how much?

A buddy of mine has one in his basement. Bought it new. Has 13k on it, original tires. Still has the plastic cover on the carpet. He drives it once a month. He asked me to help him sell it online 5 years ago and I couldn't get his asking price of $12k. In a few more years, I'll probably lament not buying it myself.

Do like.

LS Power, Like more.

Manual transmission, Like even more.

As an aside, these things give the same image and are holding their value the same way those Impalas did/do.

Too bad they're slower than a stock Impala SS.

Yes, yes it will. AND it's almost a full 200 lbs lighter than the 4.6 SOHC and 300 lighter than the DOHC.

With THAT stance??

Pretty sure there is nothing under the hood but space for an LS1.

I, for one, saw the title, saw who was posting, and thought, "Oh...this is going to be good."

And, of course, I was not dissappointed.

  1. Take stock Impala, install 28" wheels and 2' lift kit.
  2. Advertise in rap magazine for $30k
  3. Profit!

In his basement? Did he get it to fit down the basement steps, or just drive it through the Bilco doors?

On what planet? Hot Rod claims the new 5.0 weighs 430 pounds. M&F lists the 4.6 DOHC at 425.
