Just imagine if they kept the B-body going with an LS1 as planned.

I always felt that car was a lot like my favorite Impala, the '67 Fastback!



My Dad had one in gold like this back when I was still in diapers! I grew up loving that car, had some of the old snapshots they took hanging on my wall through High School. Honestly, it was the only Chevy I ever truly loved!!!

My uncle in had a blue '67 fastback SS with the rare floor gauge cluster when I was 16. I knew at that age how great the car was, and told him if he ever sells the car, let me know and I would buy it. And of course, the next summer I went to visit, and he had sold it.....grumble

I have always wondered how the Caprice/Impala would have evolved into a next-gen. Though in essence, the 2006 to current Holden/Chevrolet Caprice is the modern day successor.

From my understanding, the B-Body cars were still really good sellers, but GM needed extra capacity from that factory for the higher profit SUVs.

I just found this 1994 Car and Driver review.

Mine was snow white...originally a 327. That changed soon enough, and it was my first and last Chev.

My dad used to argue that his Burgundy '65 was nicer than my White '67. I disagreed. :)
