About “Becky”

This was my first car I ever bought. I joined the military in 2005 and was stationed across the country, far from home. I didn't need a car right after boot camp because after my training I was going straight on deployment to the middle east. While I was in the 'sandbox", I talked to my cousin's husband who was selling a 1965 impala SS with a 454. I debated for awhile to either do the smart thing and buy a gas friendly commuter car or get this gas guzzling monster. I made up my mind and for half a year I stared at this picture of a car I couldn't wait to get a hold of. Me being the Chevy man I am today, I am SOOO glad I chose to invest my money in the Impy. So as soon as I arrived stateside, I flew straight to California and got this beautiful car. "Becky."=)

About “396”

This was a 1966 Chevrolet Impala SS396 4 speed car. Aqua interior with a console and Hurst stick. I took this as a partial trade in on my 1931 Ford coupe as the fellow could not sell it. This was a huge car and I have shots of it with 4 kids playing cards in the trunk! I kept this about a year then sold it to the husband of a lady who worked for me at the time. It was just what he always wanted and I am sure he still has it. It was just too big for me and in spite of that 396 the car had no real power compared to the AMX I moved on to.
