History
I bought my SS in Sept. of 2012 when I was a sophomore in HS. I treasure this car very much, and I take pride in how it looks and runs. The car had 246xxx miles when I bought it and now has 252xxx miles and is rising fast!

Modifications

Drivetrain
When I first bought the car I performed the First Base and Home Plate delete. More recently I took out the air pump to clear out the bay for some headers that will hopefully come this winter. This summer I had a Pypes X Pipe for the Impala SS installed that are then fed through some cheapy Thrush mufflers.
Interior
My interior is stock as of now with the exception of new rear seats, and a very derpy chrome column shift nob.
Exterior
The car has Dark Cherry Metallic paint, and a blue bow-tie that I added just for kicks.
Audio
My car has a Kenwood head unit and speakers/sub woofers. The subs are not big at all, but they have a quality sound and get the job done for what I need.
Suspension
Most of the Impala N' Caprices friends I cruise with are into the slammed look. So I bought an extra pair of rear Eibach 1" drop springs from a friend he no longer needed. I also added some Monroe SS shocks. The car looks good but need to come down in the front. I plan on lowering it even more and getting a real aggressive rake to it.
Wheel and Tire
The first thing I wanted to do when I bought the car was buy some TT 2 style wheels. While researching them I came across a brand of wheels by the name of Ridler. They have a bigger lip than the TT and are way cheaper. SO I went with them in and 18 inch by 8. Do I wish I would have went with a larger width? YES, but my dad does not let me waste money on cars so I needed to get something that would not force me to burn even more of a whole in my pocket for tires. I had the wheels fitted with some Dunlop Direzza tires. I love the old school muscle look so I got the bulgiest sidewall that I could find.
