2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 2dr Coupe (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
Anyone who grew up in the 60's and 70's remembers the throaty sound of factory hotrods, well guess what, it's back. Aside from a great ride, the handling, power and sheer fun is back in this car. It seems that GM has learned from the NASCAR experience. Slight torque steer doesn't take away from this gem's muscle car heritage. This car starts to really cook after 80 mph. displacement on demand is seamless and makes the gas mileage great for a car with 300+ hp. I'm averaging 20.6 with only 1000 miles on the car it can only get better as the motor breaks in. The aerodynamics of the bodystyle add to the eye appeal. This car touches all 6 senses at the same time.
V-8 power and throaty exhaust sound
5 or 6 speed transmission will put this beauty over the top
