New guy here
Hello all. Last week I had a 63 impala and a 59 Bel-air rotting away in the yard. You know, the typical rusty immobile yard cars. Or as I like to fondly think of them as yard art.
So, last week my wife was looking off into the middle distance as she asked me a question. "If you could have any nice car to replace the 59 and 63. What would it take to make them go away?" Well? Seeing how I have a 69 and 72 Blazer already and I have a 69 Camaro to fulfill whatever mid life crisis's 69 Camaro's need to fulfill. And seeing how the 63 impala was my very first car EVER. (Yes, I am that guy. The one who never seems to gets rid of any car. Or car part.) I thought of the one car I have always loved but never owned. A 1962 Impala. Just as big and tuna boat beautiful as a 63. But with sportier lines (IMHO). So with a couple smoking Craigslist deals to move my yard art and a little extra cash. I picked up a rust free California car with a fresh crate 350, TH350, Disk brake converted, Tilt and telescoping steering wheel. Power bucket seat. 1962 Impala. I actually would have restored the 63 had it not been consumed with rust.
