    And because of that, it will continue to be dominated by Hemi powered cars.

    I work for Chevy, and we don't even get Monte Carlo's in on our lot. Those things are sellproof

    And that's the problem. With all sorts of high powered rear drive cars comming out again i don't see how the Montecarlo can compete.

    Unpopular. They're on the same level as the SSR. If we get one of those in, it'll stick around for months on end.

    It would be a real nice car if the 5.3 version was RWD

    If I was going to drop that kind of money down on a new sport truck, that would be it.

    But I'd still rather drive an L. :o

    What's an L?
    Don't be fooled by the 400 hp in the SSR...they're actually quite slow
