Yes. All 2000 and newer Impalas are FWD or aka Wimpalas.

Wimpala owners usually go by what they read in the brochure which most people do with new cars. So it builds up confidence and such and they start enjoying the sound on front tires spinning.......too bad they do not spin enough to beat a STOCK 250,000+ MILES TIRED CAPRICE. Wonder how they will like my less tired model.

I dont understand what the problem is with the FWD base on the new Imapalas. They are not race cars... if you want a drag car, buy a pocket rocket... FWD may suck in an effing drag race, but my 07 has enough horse and torque to command the highway, and once you get used to the mild torque steer, the difference is negligible. Come talk to me when you are stuck in the snow.

Although I will admit... that Buick is effing sick looking... too bad its an eyesore with the hood closed

It is pretty funny to hear about the mighty 04 SS isn't it? :rolleyes:

On the ISSF, there was a post about a guy who had
a license plate that read 303 HP on his wimpala...

It was pretty funny to read all the responses
in that thread...

I raced one guy in a newer Wimpala SS...

He thought he was pretty badass in his FWD Beretta...er...
Citation....um....Cavalier....oh yeah...Impala SS...

He wasn't happy losing to a Buick... :biggrin:

Here you go.

I rest my case...


And by the way.

I'd be happy to meet with either of you guys
on any track you choose:

Quarter mile?

Road Coarse?

Top speed run?

Or how about a car show?

You choose.

I will personally kick your ass any way you like. :wink:


Unless there is a contest in how close
your car looks like a Toyota Camry...

I'll OWN you guys... :biggrin:


p.s. Manoogia86 I have spent more money in MODS
than you have spent on your entire sad little car...

I make quite enough to buy a new SS...

Why would I want to waste my money on crap... :rolleyes:

And I am still awaiting pictures of your amazing machine... :wink:
i like this guy
