im not sure what year his was exactly, i know the newer body style had a couple different engines in it at one time or another.

base was 3100 and SS was 3400 there for a while

and then base was 3400 with SS being the L36 for a while

and then base was L36 with SS being L67

and now i think the base is still the L36 with the SS being the 5.3 V8? could be wrong on that or any of them really.

i agree with only certain colors/wheels looking good, the styling and overall appearance of those cars varies between a love/hate on each individual car.
Not sure about the older models, but the "Nascar" body style has always used the 3400 as a base. L36 was the SS, and the L67 was only the SS Supercharged.

I think the new ones use the 3.5L as a base, with the optional LS4 for the SS.

Exactly. In '04 & '05 the SS was available with an L36 or L67. The difference can be seen by looking at the rear quarter panel. The Supercharged SS'* will say Supercharged SS, whereas the L36 ones just say SS. The '00-'03s said Monte Carlo SS in that spot and were all L36 cars.
