Hello, I just purchased my second 9C1, a 2005 Impala. It was an unmarked highway patrol car so it's pretty low key on the 9C1 look, no antenna holes, no spotlight, and no pushbar. I used to have a '94 Caprice which was also a highway patrol car that was still black/white, push bar, and spotlight but it passed away a few years ago and after running around without my own car for a couple of years I'm back.

Future plans are to beef up the handling with some STBs and getting some 9C1 center caps (perhaps blacking them out to blend in with the wheels). It's going to be my DD so I'm not looking to get too in depth performance wise (that's how the first one died...failed engine swap... Whistle). I'm open to other suggestions to begin modding though.

Nice rack Very Happy

Welcome to the forum.

Not sure if the 9C1 comes with tubular trailing arms or the larger rear sway bar, but if it doesn't, you should look into the GMPP handling kit.

Sure thats not a 9c3? Just guessing by the slightly "Fancier" color and the hubcaps/lack of Caps.

Yeah, it says 9C1 on the RPO list, but yes one would think it would have been the 9C3.
