Hi from Canada

This looks like a great forum.

Always liked the Impalas.

I have a 1962 Impala SS - 2X4 409 - 4 speed car. I will try to post pics when I get a chance.

Welcome to the site Ron. Can't wait to see the pics, I'd call a 62 2x4 409 4 spd car pretty much the pinnacle of Impala-dom if you ask me! Lucky you!

you mean pictures for the thread, or Avatar for your HRD2HNDL profile name?

for pics, I think you need to be a member for the site to host them, else you can use the [ img ] tags for an off site photo server like Photobucket.

I haven't tried an avatar for my BA handle.

Hi BA

Yes...I tried the avatar. It seems that the picture size, as required on the instructions is acceptable for upload but then.... it gets rejected. No worries. I'll try to post some pictures as attachments within the next few days.

Regards

Thanks.

The cheater slicks are made by Hurst. These are supposed to be correct for that year. The front tires are for sure.

I've found some old Impala photos taken at the drags in the early 60's. I'll see if I can get some of them loaded on that site too. It was the first time I used that website. I'm not too good with computers...but the pics were pretty easy to load.

bex66....I am from the Niagara Area as well.

Thanks for the compliment.

I recall back in the early sixties that alot of older muscle cars had the "hubcaps" off, whitewall or blackwall tires, body coloured steel rims with/without dog dish caps, chromies or just the front wheels sporting mags or chrome rims.

Every once in awhile I find a web site with old nostalgia pics and sometimes someone posts other links along the same lines. I found a link showing two 62's at M&H Raceway. Black and white pics taken in the early sixties. This is basically a flathead engine "information and picture site only", but the author included some other stuff, and is well worth the look at some of the other historical raceway pics.

Note......they've got a flagman/starter!!
