Cruizer — Really fun to drive and great community of enthusiasts, especially here in Atlanta (ISSCA.org). Good room for a mechanic to work and maintenance is pretty cheap. Easy and clean layout of controls (not very tecky - it's a 96 go figure). If you like getting your hands dirty, this is a great car to work on. This style was only produced from '94-'96 and most consider '96 to be the best year of production. I would consider is one of the best 4 door muscle cars produced in the 90's maybe even late century. I'm also a little biased.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great handling for the weight (rebuilt suspension), Unmolested (no crazy mods), ride is very solid and stuck to the ground, torque monster.

Cons: Not a family car, tire size creates a little tracking, minor cosmetic wear due to daily driver.

Vlad The Impaler — I love this car! It gets a lot of attention from car guys. Whenever I take it in to the shop, someone always asks me if I would sell it! It has plenty room and is comfortable to drive. Also has some get up and go when I step on the gas.

Pros: Style, sound, comfort, power!

Cons: It's 17 years old

Reek's Impala — Best performance. Once you tighten up the engine, tune a few things, add a couple components (professional), then you got yourself a true champion. Maintenance is not that much unless you plan on running the car everyday. Very fun too drive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: The best Impala SS ever made

Cons: You don't have to worry about gas mileage because you can buy superchips to get around that problem.

It's Dearth Vadars Ride. Pimpala — I've owned the car for 7 years. Low maintenance. Classic style. Smooth body lines. Love the muscle car sound. It's old need to upgrade but if I was retired and had money I would buy another low mile impala and keep her in my collection. Sad to see her go but she's getting old.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: V8 power, lt1 4 door corvette, style, rear wheel drive, dual .  14.8 sec 1/4 mile.

Cons: Mpg, rear wheel drive,

Chevrolet Did Their Homework Here Love It — Love The Car Hated That the Bean-counters of GM killed a great car. 2000 ill attempt of a comeback was a complete joke. GM kept building the Caprice for the Middle East but not here we got FWD piece of junk re-badged Lumina.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great All Around Car

Cons: Optispark Ignition sucks

Classic Car One Must Have — GM created a classic when they discontinued this great car. last of the full size rear whell marquee. balanced suspension and engine performance. very clean burning engine. takes turns with very little sway breaking the typical "boat" handling reputation of large cars. holds value better most cars. i can find a fault for this car except wishing GM put in a big block motor.

Pros: fun car to drive, yet hauls family. no car insurance penalty.

Cons: not for daily  transportation. too precious for that.

It Is A Must Have — This is a fantastic car to drive. It has great acceleration and top speed, good handling. It's build quality is pretty good also, the only thing wrong with it is that it squeaks when you drive, nothing more. It has needed some repairs, we replaced the entire front end, and got a new transmission recently. The paint job is a Dark Cherry Metallic and interior is grey leather. It can get alright mileage at around 22 mpg highway, and around 16-18 city. This car is so much fun to drive.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Faster than most things out there

Cons: Goes through transmissions fast

Eventhough The Interior Build Quality Isin't The Best, It's Still A Great Car And I Oved Owning It — Very nice car, extremely large and comfy. Decent acceleration and handling (excellent for it's size). Exterior of the car is typical for 90's American cars. decent paint (a little pealy, or heavy texture for my taste). Body lines and molding line up with the exception of the drivers door (only a few fractions of an inch off, easily remedied. The interior though is very disappointing, all the cheap plastic rub together creating a horrible squeaking (I went throught the car with dynomat and felt to get rid of it all).On the whole it was a very reliable car with very little problems. Very comfy and fun to drive and if you kill people you can get 4 maybe five in the truck w/o having to go and dump the bodies so often.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comfortable, fast, good handling, giant ---- thumbs up

Cons: interior build quality-- tumbs down

Love It!!! — Great torque off the line. Needs new springs, retainers and roller rockers (1.6) cause at 100,000 miles it's getting a little tired in higher RPM range. Looking for new paint job but it isn't all that bad for a 1996 relic. Eats gas like a '96 Chevy w/ LT1 but is a blast to drive, especially with a redone suspension.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Pimpin driving slow, torque, sterio system, and it's an SS

Cons: crapy interior quality control and gas (but that's to be expected)
