Well, back when those Impalas were running around... so were 426 Hemi's.
They would be able to chew on those 427's with ease.
 
He got back from Germany, bought the SS Impala, put 3 deuces on it, then the headers, and then it was off to Viet Nam and Fire Support Base Barbara. It was a hog for sure and you could watch the gas gauge slowly drop when it was running but it would sit your butt back against the buckets for sure.{#Good-vibes}

hey friendo, hope all is well (yes i'd love to do this but like most folks it gets pushed back/discouraged)

i've noticed my other half tends to couch my adventurous side in reality
in other news, scientists say they've discovered the tweak my adrenals (aka "hold my beer") gene
and insurance actuaries are using it in their mortality tables
you've probably noticed these risk adjusted questions on your life ins app
sky and scuba diving which i've retired from, base jumping etc.
as a teenager i heard a muscle car junkie say "speed only kills when you wipe out"

When my brother was in Viet Nam one of my jobs was to start his SS Impala with a 427 and open headers on it to keep the battery charged. I'd start it and listen to the radio really loud while it idled for about 10 minutes every week or so. Every pore in your body responded to the sound when those headers fired.{#Bounce}That sound alone won more than one street race.
A friend of mine said my truck assaults all your senses.
  I'll bet my truck has more horsepower than that 427 Impala had.
And probably weighs close to the same as that land boat. Sorry. I don't like Shivitt's.
