66 Impala Convt Cruiser in So. Cal
My name is HP in San Diego and I have a 66 Impala Convt that I LOVE;
I must be the only Asian guy that appreciates an old classic.
I can't go anywhere without finding notes on my windshield to buy
or young girls asking me for a ride (darn I wish I wasn't 50 years old).
Even my dog refuses to get into my other car (Infiniti) and only wants to ride in the Impala with the top down (spoiled rotten American pet).
It was 100% original but I upgraded the distributor to Mallory, dual exhaust and switched 2 barrel to 4, 2 spd Powerglide to 3 spd (don't know what type of tranny it is); now I actually can pass with its measely 283 CI. Also changed the valve covers too so it appears somewhat "muscle".
I am not looking to make this into a hod rod nor a show room classic; just want to drive & enjoy it without going bankrupt.
