New from KY

just bought my first impala this past weekend. A nice barn find, been off road since 1988 in a barn. All original, artesian turquoise, 283 2bbl, 2 speed powerglide, black bench seat interior, radio delete, only option car has is power steering. car engine runs but not driveable..."YET"....im working on that this weekend... not sure my plans as of yet...i may sell it, i may fix it and cruise it....i have had plenty of cars in the past, im typically a mopar guy at heart, but i do have a 67 RS/SS 396 camaro stored in a barn "somewhere"...and im restoring a 66 chevy long bed truck that was my late grandfathers truck i learned to drive in... looks like a cool site here. here is a picture of car when i picked it up from a friend of mine.....

Welcome to the site. The car looks surprisingly good for something that was stored 20+ years in the barn. Good luck with your project and hope you keep it.
