MY friend sent me a link to this site. I like the 94-96 Imapla SS, its quite the gangster car, I also believe it runs faster than the times this guy posted. The website is very funny and oviously made by a bunch of newbs they measure performance by 0-60 and use the word "NOS" constantly.

http://impaladude.tripod.com/

On the website the author posts 0-60 times of a bunch of cars probably all mag times. Again who the hell measures a cars performance 0-60. Look at some of these times.

Acura Integra GS-R 6.6
Toyota Matrix GT 7.2
Nissan Sentra 7.2
Chevy Monte Carlo SS 7.3 - n/a 3800 faster than GTP?
Pontiac Grand Prix GTP 7.4 - The GTP gets to 60 almost a second faster than that.

He writes that 99% of the cars listed with "smoke a impala SS"

"So for all of those SS owners with no life
that spend their entire life's savings moding a 8 year old car just
to match a STOCK Acura Integra GSR or Mustang GT , this
site is for you. In fact most of those that mod their SS use NOS
because it is the only real way to get real horsepower out of
these things. I personally cannot stand NOS. It is like cheating
for those that cannot make their car faster using all motor. But
it's cheap so I suppose it fits their bill."

I dont think this guy knows the pontental of the LT1...

"I now drive a 99 Mustang GT. A true Muscle car. Got tired of the GM thing.
Besides, the only way to get a Impala SS to run fast
is to use NOS which is for the poor and weak.
Funny how I now look for SS's to kill. They are too easy though
for this car. Maybe I should pull 3 plugs. Even things out."

The author thinks is 99 Mustang GT is a muscle car.. wow

"UPDATE: Well the Mustang was stolen. So looking for a Supra Twin Turbo. $3000.00 in mods and POW,a
10 second reliable sports car. "

$3,000 in mods to run 10's in a Supra? I dont think so.

I wish I could make my own comments on this site but I cant.

Dude, WTF. My friend sent me this link because it was funny. I posted on here so maybe some people on this site would be entertained by reading this.

I kind of agree with the website. The car is extremely overhyped and was a miserable failure sales wise. The interior is cheesy at best and the build quality is... well it's mid-90's GM.

That said, It's probably at the top of my list for cars I would like to own. One day when money is coming out of my ears I'll have a pristine 1991 SHO Plus and a 1996 Impala SS with the floor console.

Mine sold for for 23,400 brand new in 96. With all the impala ss hype people seem to forget it was designed to be the workin man's Cadillac.

really... I always thought the Impala SS sold well. I mean ive seen 96's with good miles selling for $15,000 easy, I guess there is a demand for them now but not when GM was making them.

I almost bought a 96' back in 99' when I had my first Lightning but they weren't willing to work with me on the trade in. I really like the B-body Impala's and there are a few around here that would destroy a lot of Fox and F-Bodies!

I like my Regal a lot but I certianly would think twice on an opportunity to pick up a clean 96' Impala.

my dad bought one new in 96, floor console, maroon red and it was an awesome car... slow compared to ours stock but still a [email protected] ride

problem was, it fell apart at like 80k... GM just put a bunch of upgraded parts on a caprice and when they wore out... POOF car was dead and i mean tranny/suspension/brakes.. the major stuff

still i wish i could have gotten his, but without the problems lol

That dude dont know shit about Impala's...I've destroyed just about everything in my path with my SS.. I have minor mods and It should be a 13 second car and thats with stock cam and gears. Now once I do the cam swap with a LT4 hotcam with some 3.73 gears I'll be really flying in this big ass boat....Its actually nice to have a heavy car thats underestimated...Who would of though a car this big could hit mid 13's with bold ons n/a?

BTW I paid $12,800 out the door

I would love a descent 96, but most of the ones I see these days are being treated like crap and "Pimped out" which I cannot stand to see!

I had checked them out when new. Was looking to replace my Shelby Charger. And like Mike said the interior was just horrible. Turned me off from the whole car.
Had the interior been anything at all I'd probably still have one. Just got rid of the Shelby Charger 2 years ago this November.
