06ish impala ss
Okay, so I decided I'd finally post a kill. It all started as I was coming up to a stop light to a 2 lane entrance ramp when a 06ish impala ss fly's by and cuts me off. So I'm suck behind him and when it turned green, it was on. As soon as I could I got in the other lane and in no time I was at his rear bumper when he drifts over into my lane, I don't know if he was looking for me and not paying attention, or he was trying to cut me off, but I hit the brakes and he got back in his lane and we get back on it. Again, in no time I was by his side at 80-90mph when my GF starts yelling to stop.... party pooper!!! Anyways I was surprised that my express took him since they have the 5.3 vortec in them. Just thought I'd share. Happy happy happy:smileup:

They are not that bad once they get up there. Got one at the drag strip one night. Nice kill!

They have the 5.7 lt1 engine in them from the corvette and z28/formula/trans am.

The 96 impala ss did. I think they made it for 2 or 3 years. This was a new body style one.

94-96 had 5.7L LT1 with iron heads and a different cam (Vette and Z28 had aluminum heads)

04-05 had the supercharged 3.8L V6 from the Pontiac GTP and Buick Regal GS and Monte Carlo SS (04-05)

06-09 had the LS4 5.3L V8, same as Pontiac GXP, Chevy Monte Carlo SS, and the 08-09 Buick Lacrosse Super (never seen one of these Buicks).

Good kill. One of my buddies back home that I grew up with has an 07 Impala SS w/ a loud exhaust on it. It just doesn't seem right to have a car that looks like that sounding like a GTO lol. My mom has a 3.5L V6 Impala and every time I see my friends it reminds me of my moms car except for the different wheels, fog lights, and dual cut outs for the exhaust tips in the back.

I don't know how fast it is but I would think its faster than my Hemi Ram. If I ever see him when I'm back home visiting my folks, I'll ask him to go line them up.

Nice kill shawnu, use to hunt them down with my IROC camaro...won some lost some They're pretty fast with excellent hole shots. At least the ones I knew were, have some friends with some fast ones still. It all depends on the owner skills, some are really bada$$$. Haven't raced any with my truck and don't want to, I want trucks. I have a friend of a friend with a tuned 5.3 Chevy Colorado that I want a piece of (he doesn't know it yet). It's no slouch either, not sure if I can beat it but I think I can. Anyway, good race and nice kill!
