You see a SS back in the late 60's and it meant get out of the way. Now you see a SS monte and **** a altima could put it to shame.
Well ok, here's a test to that:
Line up 2007 Impala SS with a 1996 Impala SS, a 1966 Impala SS, a 1961 Impala SS..... and any other Impala SS ever built.
Also, name the course....
1/8 mile, 0-60. 0-100, 1/4 mile, standing mile, autocross, 1-mile road course, 4-mile road course, Nurburgring.
In every instance, the same car will get to the finish line first.
And guess which one that is.........
You got it.
The 2007 FWD Impala SS would open a can of whoop ass on the rest of 'em.
Ditto all of the above for the Monte Carlo SS.
Nissan doesn't make an Altima that runs mid-13s out of the box now do they.
