After two weeks of being chauffeured around in her own car or in her bodyguard's pickup truck, Mayor Gwendolyn Faison got a "birthday gift" yesterday: a new city car. Camden's City Council approved a $16,000 Chevrolet Impala for Faison, who turned 77. At a combination Valentine's Day-birthday party, the mayor of the financially strapped city said she was thrilled. "For my birthday, I'm getting a car," she told the group of nearly 30 city employees and three of her sisters in the Mayor's Office, after presiding at the wedding of her secretary.

Highway Patrol officers chased down and wrestled with a suspect Thursday afternoon in the same North Philadelphia neighborhood where Officer Patrick McDonald was fatally shot nearly 2 1/2 weeks ago. This time, however, a neighbor called 911 when she saw the ordeal, and the confrontation ended without injury to police or the suspect.

The incident started about 1 p.m., when Officers Bruce Cleaver and Joe Moore attempted to pull over a Chevrolet Impala after the driver failed to use a turn signal.

The horrific accident that killed three friends on a late July night in Northeast Philadelphia was set in motion with a boast. On the evening of July 29, 2015, a group of teens and young adults had been hanging out in a restaurant parking lot, smoking marijuana, when the talk turned to cars. Ryan Farrell bragged that his gold 2003 Chevrolet Impala could beat Christopher Bloomfield's black 2007 Acura TL, and dared his friend to a race, Shannon Reynolds testified Tuesday in Municipal Court.

As you probably noticed, affordable family sedans don't feature wake-me-when-it's-over styling anymore. That's true of midsize cars like the Ford Fusion and Kia Optima, and large four-doors like the Chevrolet Impala. Redesigned for 2014 to the delight of the automotive intelligentsia, the Impala is as handsome as it is comfortable. In the case of the tester, an upmarket, V-6-powered LTZ equipped with the new Midnight Edition Appearance Package ($1,195), a good-looking car gets to give the impression that it's up to no good.
