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'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 don't know why, but I really dont like this car at all. Not a bit. Not even the 6.0 choice.

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..

IMO, Its ugly as all hell. I love Chevy, but I'd rather get the G8 GT/GXP over the Caprice. GM can feel free to throw that 6.0L RWD in the new Impala though :)

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..... :dunno:

Haha yes, it makes me wonder how GM can take a car as cool as the G8 and make it so boring that an entire group of Impala fans are so turned off by it that they would never buy it themselves... Way to go GM, way to go... :bang:
