4th gen Buick Regal GS is underrated imo. Supercharged 3.8L v6 with 250 hp, mid 14 second 1/4, and all the comfort and luxury of a Buick.

my dad was lucky enough to do work his bosses' wife volvo. Lol my dad was expecting a normal stationwagon volvo, but then when he pressed on the gas he new it was something more. ha ha funny story, my dad lent his boss his 2003 nissan frontier 2.4 cyl.while the work on the volvo was being done. His boss was disappointed in the performance, no shit. the Frontier barely has 143 HP

yeah these buicks were from 97-2004 and were super reliable with the iron block 3800 series, real comfy and a sleeper; who'd expect a small 4 door Buick to throw down a 14 second quater mile? I like the Caprice SS's too and I have soft spot for Monte Carlo SS

I love that body style Monte Carlo, only thing I didn't like was the no manual trans option and FWD. The 2003 had the 5.3 with like 300hp, not bad at all. Oh, ant the Intimidator edition was downright sexy
