    That's actually pretty good. I wish the real Impala looked like that. What kind of engine does it have? Rwd? Good job.

    hell no! this impalas got the 6.0 liter with 400hp and fords stilll hanging on to the 4.6 making 325hp (the only way they could get it higher then that is by supercharging it)

    Thanks for the comments guys. The Impala would be RWD (zeta-based) and have the 5.3L V8. I'm not sure what platform the Fairlane would be on, but it would be RWD too and have the 4.6 or possibly the 5.4L stuffed in it. Are the images still working? The server I host them from has been acting up today and they haven't been working for me...hopefully it will be fixed soon.
