About “SS0 CLEAN”

In 2005 i was looking to buy a '87 Monte Carlo LS until i found out i was going to be a father. So now i needed a 4dr. The 2000 Cadillac Deville caught my eye until i found out it was FWD (urgh!). As luck would have it my aunt's boss was selling the Impala SS. I really didnt think much of it until i got to drive it. He sold it to me for 3k. I could have easily turned and sold it for more, but i had already fallin inlove with it (4drs for the family and good muscle.. it wasnt a hard decision, lol). Hopefully this car will be around when my son is able to drive.

About “SickSpeed”

Let me start off by saying that this car actually gets raced. I've taken it to quite a few autocrosses. Last time out, I was beating about 60% of the WRX's in the field, with a 3700lb curb weight. Plans for next year include road racing at summit point.

This is my first car, and I have had it for 3 years now. It served as my daily driver for the first two years until I got my other car, the 1991 corolla that is still in my virtual garage here. This car is my pride and joy, and I have invested over 20k into it, including the initial purchase price of 2400.

Check out the Specs and Albums to see what all has been done!

Last time to the track indicated somewhere slightly north of 300 RWHP which means about 340+ at the crank.

She's been in Chevy High Performance magazine and was chosen to be the "face" of MonteCarloSS.com, by being printed on the official merchandise. See http://www.ca...teCarloSScom/ if you are interested
