Another Impala lover

New member from North Dakota, I've been stealing your guy's expertise for a while now and thought I would join. Great site. I currently own a restored 66 Impala Super Sport and are in the process of restoring a 63 Impala convertible. I also own a 73 Z28 Camaro and a 68 RS/SS big block Camaro. I have been restoring cars for many years now, great hobby. Love all the forums and peoples input. Thanks for having me.

Welcome to the Team Faron!

If you are not already a member check out Team Camaro. Sounds like you like Chebies. so I have to ask; No Chevele/El Camino?

I have also owned more muscle cars than I can count (had twelve licensed and insured at one time), but they were all Camaro's or Nova's with the occasional Corvair or two in my fleet at all times because I liked how they drove. I have never owned a Chevelle however, and I can not think as to why I never even thought of them as being too portly, but considering I jumped into Impalas after I owned my last Nova race car it is hard to understand.

I still have one '77 Nova project car that is complete and ready to drive. I acquired it from my from my Dad when they offered him only $150 in trade in value. He bought it new back in 1977 and put 3000,000 miles on it. I also own four third gen Camaros that I bought for $150 each just to keep them from going to the crusher (the IROC Z/28 has rear disc brakes that may find there way onto the Nova at some point). I figure if I wait thirty or forty years I might get my money back. Add to that a 1973 Mercedes Benz 350SL convertible and two four wheel drive three quarter ton HD Suburbans and my barn is starting to get crowded.

My brother currently owns a 1969 two door sport coupe with a Merlin 509 built by Bill Mitchel that he bought from a restoration house in Clearwater FL as an all original 1969 SS 454 car.

It is a very nice car, but not exactly an all original SS as claimed by the used car salesman he bought it from. It was pieced together and given a pretty paint job from a Malibu body, and sold with a computer generated window sticker properly torn and dirtied up and made yellow by soaking it in tea inside a page protector to list all of the options including the 454 engine that has Merlin III cast over the timing cover. But then a fool and his money ... My brother has lots of money, but no sense. Caveat Emptor
