You've Waited for It.

BAM!

Chevrolet | eBay

Item #: 150645370371

This is the first 2011 PPV on eBay. It has a dif center shifter than seen in pre-production photos. It's pretty cool. Pretty civilian if you ask me.

I wouldn't mind getting one to hot rod...

bad news though...per the item description:

**ONLY FEDERAL U.S. GOVERNMENT OR BY STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT

AGENCY USING FEDERAL FUNDING ELIGABLE FOR OWNERSHIP OF THIS

TYPE AUTOMOBILE. *******

Wonder if they are under the new contract already, or if they are just not taking any chances..will be interesting to see where it goes, I've got it on my watch list for sure!

^I'd say they have to say that, but if someone came with the $ they'd prolly snake around it.

I'm a Chevy guy, It doesn't matter if a car is jacked up on rims, lowered to the ground or just ridiculously modded. I just appreciate the interest in Chevys. Definitely like the 6.0L V8 but Not sure where GM is going with the look. Correct me if I'm wrong...But I was excited when I heard that the pontiac G8 was going to be the new Impala, then they haulted that and said it was going to be called the new caprice. Seeing the model now, I ask where did the style go? The G8 was and looked like a beast! Sorry to vent, I think I'm just disappointed there's no new Impala LOL...IMO i think they gutted this new Caprice

The pontiac G8 was the long wheelbase version to the new Caprice. I forget the difference in length, but it's like 3-4 inches if that...the only difference between the two other than one being longer than the other, the bumber covers were different, and the grilles were different, and the G8 had different fender vents, I like these better, and it had the optional LS3 upgrade, wheels obviously, and it had a better interior, this one is just stripped down basic for municipal usage..

I agree... I really hate the car. The fundamentals are there (RWD, v8) but there's nothing that stands out and screams its an Impala or Caprice.

It's easy to change it's flaws in my opinion...and would be pretty cheap..like I said, it'd be fun to hot rod it..

Agree, which is why it is strange that I hate it so much. Fundamentals are there for sure. No presence or character or personality though. It makes the 8th gens actually look interesting.....
