    My 71 — Car is fun to drive I'm in this car daily it doesn't matter if it's 100* outside or - degrees I'm always in my car! I enjoy seeing ppl using their vintage cars as their daily drivers! 1971 is my favorite body style in the Impala. I like the comfort, the handling and the speed for a long heavy car! I will have this car for the rest of my life.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great looking, seats 6, rebuilt engine, rebuilt trans, 400 block, 400 trans, rally rims, 2010 painted.

    Cons: Bad on gas

    Fun Resonable Affordable Classic, Worth The Money, Becoming Increasingly Hard To Find. — I love this car, built back when American cars, where tough. The small block 350 provides plenty of displacement to the point of being able to accelerate up most steep grade, and on flat land you cant help but turn it loose. The gas mileage, as expected, isn't the greatest but i can still go an average of two weeks between fill ups. Cost of maintenance is minimal as long as you can do the repairs yourself parts can be gotten reasonably priced(and as long as you aren't looking for body parts) Ive had this car for about a year now and ive only had to do only the remotest of repairs, less than i was expecting with a 39 year old car. I must say it doesn't have the looks of the 60's Impalas but it is one fun car to drive and the looks i get from people is well worth it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Its a classic, they just dont make them like this anymore

    Cons: Can be troublesome if you need body work done

    Solid And Reliable — Easiest car I ever owned to do my own maintenance. Plenty of space in the engine to get to the parts I needed. Never had any major mechanical problems. Engine relatively uncomplicated. Body is solidly built. Owned mine for 15 years until it was totaled out in a high speed wreck by a drunk. I emerged unscathed and injury free. Any other car I would have probably been killed.

    Pros: Mechanically uncomplicated.  Can pull some heavy loads.

    Cons: Somewhat awkward in city driving.  More comfortable on the open interstate or country.

    The Love Of My Life (other Than The Camaro) — solid car, looks great with whatever you do to it, strong 350 under the hood

    Pros: the 350 engine

    Cons: the wide stance

    1971 Chevrolet Impala Costum — I am a huge fan of this body style. The 71 model has a muscle car look while being a family car. It's a rare car and rarely seen on the streets! My 1971 Impala is my daily driver and family car I love driving this car but hate paying for the gas.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great reliable car, fast, seats 6, new paint, new carpet, new interior,

    Cons: Bad on gas, ac blows cold but the vents hardly blow the air out. No tilt wheel,
