    I've never owned a Chebby. And never had an issue with the numerous Fords I've owned either.

    That scares me.

    And my wife says it's ugly. She doesn't understand the allure of 395 HP.

    How bad is your gas mileage? And does the interior do the GM rattle?

    I found a used one locally for $34K.

    I got a price on a new SS with the 3SS package of 30,900. And there's an '06 used 3SS locally that I'm going to try to get a price on, should be around $26K.

    I think they're badass and if I could've found one for less than $20k I'd be driving one instead of my GTO.

    Nice ride. I'd look into getting one if I were in a warm weather state.
