2006 Monte Carlo, Impala and Charger...

Well guys, I've seen pictures of the 2006 Monte Carlo, Impala AND Charger. I must say that I am extremely disappointed. The Monte Carlo V8 is a plus, but has no RWD or good looks. I admit, I haven't seen one in person and maybe they do look better in person. Until I see one, I won't know. The rear end looks similar to the 2000-2005 Monte's, but if you ask me I'd rather buy a 2004 Supercharged SS. The 2006 Monte needed to look more like a Monte and have RWD w/ a V8. The Impala looks like an Altima and the Charger SEDAN (yes a 4-door, not 2 door like it should be) looks like the Magnum. I am not impressed. These three cars had a good legacy. I think that Chevrolet will soon see the same fate as Oldsmobile and Plymouth. Here is where you will find the pics

Now, these are real Monte Carlo's:

These are real Impala's:

AND this is a real Charger:

Thumbs up Monte Carlo

I agree with you 110%. It seems as if GM is afraid to go that extra step and bring back a real muscle car. I've wondered for quite awhile why they haven't put a v8, rwd, standard Monte Carlo into production. Same with the Charger, it should not have that family car look.
