Default Killed an Impala...

Okay, so it'* not a great kill, but it was a 99? 00? 4-door Impala. She came up next to me with a couple guys in the car and honked (because she can't see me through the tints), then dropped the hammer. I did likewise and more than walked away. Rolling start at about 25, within a few secs was at 65, then I shut 'er down, I was 4 or 5 car lengths on her anyway. We did this 3 or 4 times, each with the same result. When she passed by after I slowed down the guys were thump-up all the way. Good sports!! Hehehe...Fun.

Just like this one, only maroon:

I was just wondering that, so here'* what I found:

Layout front-wheel drive
Engine 3.8-liter 12v V6
Horsepower 200 hp @ 5200 rpm
Torque 225 lb.-ft. @ 4000 rpm
EPA fuel economy, city/hwy 20/29 mpg
Additional engines 180-hp 3.4-liter ohv V6
Transmission 4-speed automatic


So they have either a 180hp 3.4L, or a 200hp, 225tq. 3.8, which mine is 205hp with 260tq. So, yeah, I did right by 'er...

It would have been a 2000 cause the impalas didn't come back till 2000, same year they changed the monte carlo, I remember that cause I was working at Whiteside Chevrolet at the time.

I know the '98 Impalas looked like the Caprice with an LS1, and the one in the link is a '99. I thought '98 was the first year they brought them back??

I'm pretty sure the caprice style ended in 97 or 98 and the new impalas where back in 2000. Can anyone confirm or deny this with facts? I know there was a period of 1 or 2 years that they did not make the impala.
