Looking forward to becoming part of the forum.I am Garrell Patterson from Tallapoosa, Ga. Younread correctly Garrell from Tallapoosa two unusual names. I am an old guy but I have accomplished quite a lot car wise in my life. I have owned what. I refer to as over 50 significant Chevrolets in my life many were what are now rare Corvettes, Z/28’S and many SS Impalas ie: a 400 HP 63 Impala and what I consider to be the rarest and fastest car I have ever owned a 1967:Super Sport Impala wit( a 427 CI 425 HP, 4-Speed, 4:11 Rear Gear. I have set six Land Speed Records in the Standing Mile. A year ago I decided to come out of retirement and try to make it into the 130 MPH Club even though I have ran much faster before but this was in a difficult class to accomplish such a speed. After studying the class I decided to build an 06 Crown Victoria to try and accomplish my goal. I spent a year preparing the Ford to try and accomplish my goal every minute of everyday I was making list, ordering parts and Sending the car to different shops for work to be performed. I had almost decided I had made a wrong choice but on my 9TH and final run over three days I finally ran 132.353 MPH. When I got home I decided I would go back to run one more one last time as I told my Wife with a goal of running over 140 MPH within a budget of what I sold the Crown Vic for. After much deliberation I chose an Impala SS. I know the car with the right modifications is capable of those kind of speeds and that’s where the expertise of you Forum Members come in. The car I have purchased is an 06 Black on Black Impala SS with 121,000 miles on it and it’s a very cleaned and well maintained car. I am excited about learning about these cars and there potential.
