BEEEEEEEAUTIFUL.

You went from two H bodies and an epsilon to one H body, and a W-body, to TWO W-bodys. Nice.

I am expecting to see you sign up at www.naioa.com very soon

Also..

That is the LS4, it'* based off the LS1 that was used in the corvettes. Same engine basically except it'* a 5.3, most stuff otherwise is the same.

They're FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAST!

You'll love this car, I guarantee it

ooo, red... nice.... I love those things, man. Much better designed then the 00-05 Impalas. I heard if you try, the gas mileage isn't that bad either. Nice car, [email protected]

I always liked the LS4...plenty of torque down low but still shines at highway speeds. I bet with a better intake and tune it could pull 30mpg highway.

Odd, I haven't heard of many issues with the 2006+ SS on NAIOA.

Just don't beat it every day and it'll be fine, as with any other car.
