About “09impala”

Bought this car with 3600 miles on it. My wife drives it everyday to drive the kids around. Great car. Wife is very happy with it. average 34 mpg.

About “Dangerous”

Nearly rust free Kansas car. Clutch went out in 2003, I've been working on rebuilding the motor since then. Motor was assembled in 2006/2007, and installed in 2007. Car back on the road for a few months in 2007, new lower springs and shaking out the engine tune. 2008, drove it a couple months and 2nd gear syncro went out. Swapped the trans and now driving it daily while waiting for some parts for the Auto Rotor swap.
2009 - Car is down as I swap in the Auto Rotor 2.0l along with various upgrades including new Air/Liquid intercooler and associated plumbing that needs to go with that and the Moates Quarterhorse for better tuneability.
Autorotor is in and car is running since August. best time so far 12.907 @ 110(approx) up at the Brainerd International Raceway Muscle Car Shootout in 2010.

Cracked the oil pan at the end of 2010. Big things planned for spring and summer 2011.

Sold fall 2012
