Lots of fun

2006 Chevrolet Impala SS 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
Just got a new SS. I went in to look at an old Jaguar, ended up buying new. I love the look of the new Impala (I liked the old one too). I'm getting lots of compliments from co-workers, saying that it looks like a more expensive car than it is.
I love the neck snapping power of this V8. Much better than the supercharged V6. The displacement on Demand also CAN save a lot of gas (if I can keep my heavy foot off the accelerator)
This car needs rear wheel drive. The engine is so powerful it creates a lot of torque steer. Hold onto the wheel tight and re-act quickly when you hit the gas.
