RE: Impala SS Warning

I thought I read a review of the new Caprice Classic in Crap & Drivel
(tm) a while back that said they were favored by police departments for
their size, until someone tried a high speed pursuit, and the thing did
a fair imitation of a Frisbee. After which they governed them to a
little over 100mph. Not sure what they did to the Impala, but they do
share body styles.
