*Cough* Impala...*Cough*. Doesnt matter how beefed the powertrain is, if it looks like **** whats the point. Same thing with the GTO and Charger. They are just reviving classic muscle cars and completely destroying their reputation. You watch, in 2 or 3 years that new Goat will look just like another GM rear end (intrigue etc). Nothing that will stand out against the crowd. It will blend in with all the other Ford Taurus'* and Buick Century'* that are an abomination on the roads we drive today.Oh well. Maybe they will depreciate really fast. The 1995 model is just that much better looking. Has that badass front end with a lowering kit...you know what im talking about, or maybe you dont. and with the LT1. I looked at them before my car too. Didnt like the column shifter.

well yeah they have the LT1, but as mentioned in another post theyre also well over 4000lbs...fat lot a good an LT1 does then and i do agree that Impalas arent exactly the hottest thing on the road, quick and to be respected though....GTOs are dead sexy in my opinion, but then again so are all the Holden cars...nuff said there

Chargers im kinda undecided on...they did take awy from the chargers original imagine though...we go from Bo and Luke to.....a four door sedan?...granted one that hauls, but still

I agree with you about the GTO. GM got the drive train right and I'm sure they handle well, but it looks like all the other cars out there. At a glance, it looks like the G6. I've never been a big blue oval fan but Ford has it whan it comes to a revived classic look muscle car with the Mustang. It'* even affordable.

Being a classic Camaro owner, I'm afraid they'll bring back the Camaro as either a depressingly common looking car or a nice ride that nobody can afford. (like the SS/R).

a 14 sec SUV?!?! Now THATS a sleeper.
When I was at Milan a few weeks ago there was one there (with a manufacturers plate on it of course, being this close to detroit its not uncommon at all) and I only saw it make one run, and it ran a 14.87. I don't know how far off that is going to be from what they actually run but it is definately a baseline to give you an idea. I saw it run and I was like WTF was that? So I looked at it and it had the big scoops on the front bumper and a manufacturers plate on it.

I would have to i agree and I liked gto. Ah what the point of mocky the intrigue I owned one. Well I agree it might not be one the best looking cars on the road it sure had power. MIne had the 3.5 the machine was fast ,but it kept having intake problems.

While the Intrigues do run well with the 3.5, (they are far from fast in my opinion, but everyone has their own opinion of fast so I can respect that) they look plain and blend in with every other GM product. Which is exactly what we are saying is gonna happen to everything else. They need to start making the cars look a little different.

Too bad the chassis design wasn't built to support that kinda work load....

But them trail blazers are quick as H*** right now.

Also isn't the current Impala SS a */C?
that same chassis is underneath the ssr, supporting the ls2 as well... so I think it'll handle it just fine...

I think the new GTO is great. Im not a Dodge fan but I think they should be happy too.

A few years ago WRX'* and EVO'* didnt exist, there was hardly any Japanese cars for cheap that can run with Domestics. Times have changed and I think its great there are a few new fast domestics available.
