1996 Chevrolet Impala SS
Cedar Crest, NM 87008
After an 18-year hiatus, BMW has revived the 8 Series name with the BMW Concept 8 Series. The automaker's new flagship model could help the manufacturer compete against Mercedes-Benz, which overtook BMW last year as the world's largest luxury automaker.
Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.
Classic Car Overview
My 1996 Black black BEASSST was developed on the famed Earl Street in Torrance, California. The SSS in the BEASSST vanity license plate relates to engine builder Ron Shaver of Shaver Specialty Products. Shaver builds engines that have won national and international championships including the Indy 500, World of Outlaws, offshore boat racing and off road truck racing. Shaver is inducted in the Sprint Car Racing Hall of Fame. The engine started life as a Chevrolet 502 cubic inch crate motor. Shaver recreated the internals of the engine so that it produces nearly 600 horsepower and close to 700 foot pounds of torque. The 4L80E transmission axel is custom made by B&M and has two separate cycles-- for racing and for cruising. By driving in drive mode, the transmission is in race mode with crisp, sharp, shifting, in overdrive, the shifting is more docile. The rear end has also been modified and reinforced to harness the additional performance. The real secret to the BEASSST is the system integration of all of the fire breathing components assembled by fellow Earl Street legends Gil and Steve Bothwell. The Bothwells technically innovated LYNXX-- a next generation black box to work with an aftermarket computer device to interpret high performance Shaver engine data. This car has unofficially been to 165 mph and was still pulling. I have personally driven it along the toll way from Yorba Linda to Laguna Beach at 147 mph. The car is equipped with six point hydroplane racing harnesses for the driver and front passenger and has been personally signed by original Impala SS project engineer, Jon Moss, inside the trunk lid. The car began its conversion at 3,400 miles and now has less than 25,000 total miles. Pending sale would include all professionally packaged, sealed and stored original engine, transmission, exhaust parts and accessories. I have all records. I could go on.
