Do you feel like you are driving a parade float in that beast?

Nice ride and thanks for giving us a peek.

lol it rides like a land yatch and it just floats along. Its about a foot longer than an escalade. It takes some precision driving to pull into a parking space, but once youve figured that out its not too bad.

X2.... LOL I had a black one as a taxi years ago. They are comfy and ya, parking and tight turning takes some practice and forethought. I always felt like I should be driving the Pope, or the Pres around. People really liked riding in them though. I got alot more tips than in my repainted Caprice Interceptors.

its not a 5.0 windsor thats a load of crap lol

a windsor is a 351 which is bigger than the 5.0, the 5.0 is a 302 but they do have the same block so you could easily throw a 351 in. the hoarspower sounds about right though, but not for long! gettin my Gt-40 Intake and 65mm throttle body with 24lb/hr injectors any day should get t up to 220hp-250hp.
