History
This 1996 Impala SS is my daily driver. It has 122,000 miles as of June 2013. It was a one-owner car when I bought it in August of 2010. Had 92370 miles and all maintenance records. It was all original except the mufflers.

I've installed a K&N cold box, cooler t-stat, and Eddlebrock shocks. In 2011 added the T56 transmission with 3.73 rear end. Added 18" Streeter staggered wheels and Nitto rubber in Dec 2011. Awesome every day driver.

Did some adjustments with the JET DST tuner. Had PCM 4 Less tune it.

In March 2013, upgraded the original LT1 350 top-end from throttle body to exhaust.

Clean original interior. All power. Great gray leather power seats. Cruise control. Auto shut-off lights. Key-less entry. Added Boyds 13.5" steering wheel.
