About

My love of 58 Impala's starts in the early 60's when I saw a Red/red interior Impala convertible cruising around my home town of Waynesboro, PA. No other production car (in my opinion) Has the styling,clean lines and sculptures to match. GM built a one year American Beauty!
When I saw a cashmere blue 58 Impala 348/3x2's 3sp for sale in 1966, (I was 17 at the time,) I bought it. My driver at that time was a nice 1948 Buick Super 2 dr, straight 8, 3sp. No cruiser! not cool then!! but , boy... wish I had that car back!!! Getting back to the 58, It was fast... and loud... and wet! oh... with the top down... in the rain....or in the car wash... We have a lot of good memories. That car was sold and replaced with a family sedan,you got to do what you got to do! The rest of the story restarts in 1995, after 3 kids are out of the nest. I start looking for another 58 Impala, Frustrated after not finding a nice driver, I find a 64 Impala- at a public auction- and got it. 3 years later, I found a nice black 58 Impala convertible that Diana and I enjoyed cruising in. In 2003 I started a body off the frame complete restoration. Today (Feb 2008) the car is nearly complete and We are anxious to cruise,once again in a 58 Impala,Top Down...Loud...Cool....but no car washes or road racing![img][/img]
