So I've read all the posts so far and am gonna throw my 2 cents in. I have a 69 SS350 and ordered a 2010 SS when you couldn't hardly find them in a dealership. Love to drive the 69, but was SHOCKED by the power and handling of the new one! Still puts a grin on my face every day after 3 1/2 years of ownership. That's with the LS3 and stock SS which now everyone seems to call a pig but is more car and performance than 99%
of drivers could handle full out. (426 hp LS3 is more than most 427's put out back in the day, and it pulls from way down low) Now we have better handling, less weight, and LS7! i'm sayin don't knock it till you've tried it...visibility is fine after 2 days...now I wonder why other cars have such tall side windows. Is it perfect...no. But it IS one hell of a car at a reasonable price. Can't wait to see Gen 6!
