Just outta curiousity, what engines do those cars have. I was under the impression that it was a V8(hence the Super S@#$ badge). Thats why I was so impressed with my victory.

If you're talking about the Monte Carlo SS from the 80's, it has a 5.sl0w V8. The newer ones have a 3.8 V6, and are not much faster. The newest ones have the same, and are a little faster.

The 80's cars at least looked nice, but lacked a drivetrain. Anything newer lost even quality... seemingly a trend with GM

The ones with the skirts sort of remind me of flying carpets or something. I don't really like the look. I am waiting in the darkness to teach a good lesson to one like the guy did in an earlier post!;)

My best friend has an 85 SS... and I will tell you what... slow as hell. They also had a big problem with the electronic shifting... they would go out before rolling over 100,000
