Take a look at this pic.....and imagine me driving, and a rear impact so hard that it sent my baseball cap from my head to the rear deck (back window). Lilpooky was the front seat passenger. We had no idea what happened. The guy that hit me found my hat for me. $10k damage to the rear end, 2 months off work, and back surgery.



Roadmaster'* DON'T have crumple zones. They're built like a freaking truck. In impact WILL hurt. (no, my airbags didn't deploy....only a frontal impact on a Roadmaster will do that, but we were driven into the back of the car in front)

who needs crumple zones when you have a foot of padding in the seats... I might just look into one of these

If you want to end up like I did, flat on your back for 2 months, you don't need crumple zones.

These cars are not very forgiving in accidents. I would have fared far better had I been in the SSEi.

That'* essentially an Impala SS that'* a little softer. You have lots of mods for it. Wouldn't those tail lights be sweet tinted!?!?!

VERY sweet idea. I'd say go for it!

Just a LITTLE softer than an Impala SS lol. I don't know, im still thinkin about this. Those stock rims would have to go. The tailights would look pretty sweet tinted. But the whole car is kinda grandma-ish. What could I put on for mods? Exhaust? Intake? The thing doesn't have Posi traction.

But some postives I like,

LT1
Low Miles
Very quiet ride
Digital Climate control
Concert Sound Stereo whichs sounds pretty kick @$$


Im still thinkin about it. Its my grandmas car (go figure), so I got some time to decide.

Deciding decisions for me would be:

gold
