Garage
Vehicle Name Bandit-mobile
Year 2003
Make Chevrolet
Model Impala
Color tan
Packages The exclusively rare and deluxe-style nostalgic COLUMN SHIFTER!!!!! Also an incredibly luxurious radio with no unnecessary TV screen, just AM/FM/CD/tape.
2003 Chevrolet Impala
History Previously owned by an older couple who took incredibly good care of it. Very little rust for a car so old, especially considering this generation is known for having weak pinch weld/skirt areas.
Exterior
DRL/autolight delete, working on installing a Cobra 29LTD Classic with a Wilson "Little Wil" magnet mount antenna.

Interior
2003 Chevrolet Impala Interior
I had the dealer replace the center console piece because it was broken......if it makes y'all feel any better and maybe makes this count, they got me the last piece of the right color and part number that GM had in stock on the entire planet. Was in some warehouse someplace. Handle to open the storage on it was stuck open, would spill anything stored inside if it was flipped open for a passenger or something.

In-Car Entertainment
Umm....there's this little blinky red light on the radio. Does what it does even when the car is turned off. Almost makes me sleepy.

Yes, I know this is for a security system of some kind...one which I'd like to deactivate, unless it's just for the radio itself. Doesn't seem to have much point. In case anybody wasn't sure or couldn't tell, the first "paragraph" of this section was designed to be a satire-ish joke of sorts.

Under the Hood
3800cc V6 with a 4-speed automatic. Pretty standard stuff at this point. Considering adding louvers, maybe intake and exhaust systems sometime in the next couple years.

Suspension
Vewwy sqwishy. My car is a boat. :p

Wheel and Tire
Immensely luxurious deluxe edition 16-inch wheels that appear to be factory, though I don't see them on many other such vehicles. Rides on 3 P225/60R16 Goodyear Eagle RS-A's, and 1 Falken directional of some sort. Best guess is the previous owner popped a tire someplace and needed a quick replacement to keep that wheel off the ground while the other three wore down naturally.
