Is it too much to ask for you dumb little monkeys to actually read the prior posts in the thread, and attempt to use some semblance of punctuation, capitalization, and general friggin grammar?
Yes, this is mostly directed at the MKIV forum.
Now GET OFF MY LAWN!!!!!!!

They have a comparison of the Caprice SLP and the Charger SRT8
Make it three yards mother****er and we'll have an automobile race
I suppose it will depend on what exactly the details of the newly unleashed beasts will be. I heard rustling about an SS for a long time and figured that Chevy's current line up of camaro and corvette meant that whatever was released would be a sporty sedan and not another coupe...
I figured this meant a possible revival of the g8/commodore... interesting to see this take shape.
SS though... really?
really chevy? My grandpa fought the SS back in the day... I don't know how I feel about driving something with that namesake.
You'd think they'd have thought this through a little more. call it anything else. I suppose Jewish people don't make up most of the nascar/bonneville demographic they are going for.
As someone who already has a manual.. I both want to see them make more.. and also for selfish exclusivity reasons.. do not want to see them make more. Overall, the good person in me says "Get it right Chevy - make more manuals."
My best guess is that this new car will slot in somewhere performance wise above the g8 gxp but below the cts-v. My main concern for watching my g8 lose value on the introduction of this news is that the new car will probably clobber my gxp's 15 mpg average.

I'd argue it's significantly more stupid than the GT or CC names, because SS has a long history as a trim level for specific Chevrolet vehicles (including, at the moment, the Camaro).Originally Posted by bzcat
Car Guy 1: Hey I have a Chevy SS.
CAr Guy 2: A Chevelle, Impala, Malibu, Monte Carlo?
Car Guy 1: Uh no, A Chevy SS.
Car Guy 2 :/
We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.
Ever watch intervention?
You know when they are following a tweaking crack whore, and all the family and councillors get together with a plan for her to get off crack, stop sucking d*ck for spare change, and get into rehab?
Then you get that message that tells you after all that work as care, she just relapsed 3 months later anyway?
I think the SS will be a good car, but when I think about it all I get is that GM is that relapsing crack hoe that just never learns... What next, bring back the Hummer H2?
(edit for retarded iPhone spell corrections)
