#4 of 13618 Hey all

Talked to Matt tonight on the phone. He is having trouble with his pc. Something is wrong with his monitor. So he asked me to tell you all that his teacher came up with another one in class. He said that you could special order an Impala with a V8 in it. Matt wanted to tell him really bad how wrong he was but kept his mouth shut so as not to lose any points with the teach. His teacher is adamant that all GM cars are made in Mexico and that the GM people are trying to cover it up with the vin numbers and all the stickers on the cars that say they are made in Canada. Just passing this along. Some teachers should do their research before becoming Great Buffoons in their classrooms.
#5 of 13618 Makes you wonder

what other wrong ideas this teacher has and is insisting are true.
The whole point of life long learning is that at whatever age you find yourself, you can always learn something from someone older or younger than yourself and must not be adamant that you are the living personification of absolute truth.

That's one of my personal favorites. Would love to get that with the parchment leather interior.
I am driving that old 1990 Cr Vic (actually the Gr Marquis sister) now - with 140K on it. Every morning I look out the window to the driveway to see if perchance it may have morphed overnight into a new Impala LS (alas - it's a stubborn beast!) Hope to replace it next yr with what you are driving today. Guess I won't wait for you to get done with yours and then buy it used - but I will look for lease returns mid next yr and see what's avaiable.
Enjoy your LS ride. Glad you're getting at least one decent perk for the risks you take.
#7 of 13618 static CHARGE!!!
Dec 07, 2000 (5:00 pm)
This morning I dug out my can of spray static killer and did the inside of my coat (it's fleece), my mittens (also fleece) and THE FRONT SEAT OF MY IMPALA!!! And it WORKED. So far today I've had no zaps. It's cold here (for us anyway, 30-42 degrees for the day) and VERY dry, so the static charge is killer. I can feel the stings on my hands all day long.
If this really works all day, I'll let you know.
#8 of 13618 Oil Used? - Response from All
Dec 07, 2000 (5:11 pm)
I am close to changing the oil in my Impala LS and I was wondering what brands of oil are everyone using and is it synthetic?
I took a trip last week on Friday to a Mississippi state high school championship game and I averaged 28.3 mpg. This car is great. When I was driving at 70 mph on the interstate, the car handles great and you can hardly tell that you are traveling that fast. Thanks for all responses to the oil question. May all have a terrific day!
#9 of 13618 jeffreyw1 OIL CHANGE

Do yourself a favor and use nothing but Mobile 1 Synthetic and AC Delco Filter. This is what comes in the Corvette from the factory.
Just turned 2600 miles on my 2001 LS. Running great.
#10 of 13618 Oil question.....
Dec 07, 2000 (5:32 pm)
I have been using nothing but Dino oil for the last 12,000 miles....my question is this...is it too late for me too change to Mobil 1 Synthetic? Are there any benefits in doing so at this point?
I have checked my oil level every 3000 miles and the 3800 doesn't use a drop of oil!
