I don't know... I'm not a Ford guy, so I think the Impala and Monte look pretty neat. (not necessarily cool, but neat) I wish they were RWD though. I still don't like the shape of the C-pillar on the monte though. :zpuke:

I think the "van" thing is just the SUV version of their SSR truck. I don't know what I think of it though.

:2huh: I own 2 Tbirds. I just meant that I don't like or dislike cars just because they aren't made by Ford. Sorry for the confusion. :)

Looks to me like they just grafted parts from the cobalt onto each of them. They still looks like crap :zpuke:

I really don't like the new Monte's. I used to like them, but now they just look like everything else. Boring.

This is the Monte I WILL own someday. My wife knows it, and has delt with it, lol.... 1970 here I come :headbang:




















This has all the "V8 on demand" that I want. Choice of 350 or 454SS, and style to boot :cool: It may look too much like a Chevelle for some people, but the 70 to 72 Montes have a special place in my heart. Man, I miss my 70. Good times..... bad girls.....ahhhhh.... :xpwink:

Ditto. Also, i am glad to see the interior upgrades, espacially on the Impala. My cousin has a 04 SS and i must say the interior is quite plain and boring, the 06 looks much better!

i agree. gm has been slacking hardcore on their interiors in recent years but they are doing much better now with the 04/05 gto and now the 06 monte and impala.

I owned a 96 Impala SS and can remember the Impalas of the 60's and 70's well. The current version isn't in the same league, IMHO. I just don't care for the shape. To each his own.

FordMan77, you've good taste in cars. That Monte is nice.

Why thank you. As do you. I see you have a Marauder now. Upgraded the Panther from CVN, eh? Been awhile since I've checked in over there. Good to hear from you. My wife likes the Earnhart edition Montes, but everytime I say I will just sell the bird and buy that for her, she protests. Says she can't stand driving anything less than a V8 now, lol. Go figure.

06 Impala SS

I guess you can say I'm sold...call me a trader if you will but that much Hp and the car gets 27 Mpg on the highway, yah it's still fwd. But not bad for a grocery getter/ family ride. Check it out for yourself.

Power on demand. what do you think?

Take an Camary and slap a Bowtie on it.

I see alot of problems from a FWD V8 (I've work on caddy V8 300s), and expect trannies to die and obscene repair bills for everything else (like $900 waterpumps).
