This is TL;DR Uncut, a more detailed review of the title vehicle. For the original TL;DR Review, click here.
Welcome to TL;DR Reviews! This is the place where you can learn useful information about a car faster than you can name all five members of *NSYNC, which is a completely useless thing to know. Today’s car comes from the same neomodern, boy-band-crazed era, but is it any good?
I bought something that I think should help clarify what kind of car I am driving to those who’ve never heard of it (all people).
Those period tires... just let me drive it!
I talked to the owner briefly. He told me that it's a 1964 Impala SS.
There's just something damn impressive about a full size fastback coupe. Like the Ford Gran Torino, or the Dodge Charger, this 1968 Chevrolet Impala has all the style of the smaller pony cars of the era, but trades speed for swagger. This super-duper clean example was spotted in Toronto. It was absolutely ruling…
He had this Impala SS before he became a family man. Now he has 9 kids but he didn't want a minivan; so he transformed it into a kick ass SS Limo. I call it the SStrech. Another pic below. (My friend Anthony took these pics)

Nah, didn't think so!
Everyday should be Friday!
And we're back... This is The Opposite Locker where we try and sort out the cool from the square. This is a discussion system detailing how cool a car is, not how fast, fun, or frivolous it may be, but how well it looks in the cat's pajamas.
If I haven't already. And fanart. And paperwork. Look at this Baby!
My new (well, new to me) 2002 Chevrolet Impala LS needed to have her windshield replaced: it wasn't cracked, but years of highway driving by the previous owner had sandblasted the thing. It was covered in tiny scratches, and when hit directly by light - like other headlights, rising/setting sun, the photons would be…
I love cars - obviously, else why would I be here? But I've been car-less for almost a decade. As I've been living and working in downtown Toronto - which is more like Manhattan every day - and a car was a want, not a need.
I enjoy watching Velocity's Chasing Classic Cars with Wayne Carini. Don't you wonder what happens to the cars that don't sell? I started looking at Wayne's website a few years ago and peruse it occasionally just see what he has for sale online. Over time, I've noticed he'll have cars priced any where from $500k to…
