Good Morning and Happy New Year
. . A new year and a new car. .
. . Been working on cars for almost fifty years both professionally and as a hobby for myself. . Have had maybe 35 to 40 cars over the years. . Always had to sell the finisher one in order to afford the next one. . Til now. .
. . Worked in mining for over 32 years and owned a towing and auto repair shop for several of those years. . Am now fully retired and can afford to buy what I want without the pain of selling off one toy in order to pay for the next one. .
. . At the top of my wish list for many years has been a 1966 full sized Pontiac convertible and a 1965 Impala SS convertible. . While searching for a '66 Pontiac a few years back I stumbled across a '68 Pontiac Parisienne 2+2 Convertible up in Canada. . It wasn't a '66 but is was affordable. . Is still fun explaining to people why my Pontiac has an Impala frame and drivetrain. .
. . Just recently I ran across a '65 Impala SS convertible fully restored and ready to go. . After crying and whining about the few I could fine and the outrageous prices most people wanted I finally bit the bullet and brought this one home. . Pure coincidence that both turned out to be red with white tops and interiors. .
. . Now just need a pretty little gal to enjoy them with. .
