About “#SVT”

NO LONGER OWNED!!!!!!!!!!!
I purchased the car for two reasons. I got a GREAT price on it. AND it was an awesome car to drive. Shocked a LOT of people with its power and handling. Third gear bark at 85mph...lol




About “The Chevy”

Purchased after the 1995 LeSabre my grandfather willed to me was totaled by some girl who ran a red light, I was in a hurry to purchase a replacement. listed for $5,995 was a damn near "like new" condition Chevy Malibu in which I picked up for about an even $5,000. I still wish I had my old car, but this should hold me over for a while.
