New to (this) Forum

New to this forum. SOB '96 SS ('not quite' stock, new, built MOTOR & built tranny waiting for the weather to cool off for install). 'Pretty good'with questions/issus on the 'B-Bodies' ('94 - '96), and I've got pleanty of info on 'where to look' if I can't help.

Neighbor is 'into' the early pop-tops (he'll drop the frame and put the body on a rotisory (sp?) faster than most of us swap out a flat tire.
I'll see if I can drag him in here.

Welcome to the Team Guy!

Most of our members are owners of 1961 to 1971 Impalas by the number of cars I have seen posted. There are some newer cars here (I own an '85 and an '89), but no one is interested for the most part, with 1964-'70 being the most popular car on this board (and generatitng 95% of the traffic).

Underneath your bathtub sheet metal your Impala SS is identical to the rest of the 1977-'99 B-bodies and you could swap in any motor or tranny you wanted if your state doesn't have any form of annual inspection. (which is why my 85 has a BBC 582 and the 89 has a SBC 406 both of which out put over 500 horsepower and couldn't pass an emission test if Jesus was at the wheel). But once again I being old school use a carburetor as is on top of just about every members car with the exception of a few WWD (Wrong Wheel Drive) Impala owners who have joined recently looking for help debugging error codes from their computers because GM decided to put the Impala name plate on a Isuzu designed car.
