New owner of a 2006 SS. Had a 2004 GTO with over 500 to the tires but with my newborn baby girl they just didn't go well together. Being a previous owner of a 1996 Impala SS and now a 06 SS owner I can honestly say that I am impressed with GM and the work they put into this car. I personally like this car better then my 96. I plan on just doing two basic mods to her. Diablo Programmer and CAI. No mod bug for me in the grocery getter.
