First Time Impala Owner

Hello folks, I just got my very first Impala yesterday. A little about myself first though, lol. I'm 43 years old, former ASE Cert. mechanic, became disabled in 2007 while on the job & a Chevy lover all the way. I have lived in E.TN. all my life. I'm divorced & have one son who is 8yrs. old, own my home & the place next to me. I'm currently doing a frame off Pro Street build on my 1969 Chevy SWB with my best friend of almost 25 years. I'm a member of a Chevy truck forum that I have learned so much from & I hope to do the same here.
Like I said, I got my Impala yesterday, 2/25/2012. I traded my 1981 Chevy drag truck for it even trade. It took me a week of trying, talking, looking etc... but I got it. It's 43 years old also, a 1968 Sport Coupe 327/350HP, TH400 & all original other than the intake & carb. Anyway, I am so glad I found this site & I hope to not only learn alot but makes some friends here as well.
