3.9 liters of SuperSport: 2006 Chevrolet Malibu SS

Oh GM product planners, you were such jokers back in the day. Remember when you put a giant pushrod V6 and an SS badge into every front drive econobox you sold and claimed they were sporty? Haha, you were such a joker back then, what happened? Oh. Sorry. I didn’t know you were transferred to the Cadillac naming department and now spend your days trying to figure out new and complicated alpha numeric designations for the next g-neration of sedan, but I’m excited to see the new C’NSYNC5 Blackbeard Edition when it launches. Is that a fixed roof convertible crossover sedan coupe motorcycle batwing? Cool. Find this 2006 Chevrolet Malibu SS offered for $7,950 in Sacramento, CA via craigslist.

I’m confused by this image included in the listing? What are we doing to consummate this sale? No…no…I just want to buy a blue SS, I’m not into those kind of shenanigans.
