One of 93 "Additional Invitees" at the Concours, this Impala surely could have won any of these 4 of 24 awards presented "Biggest Wow Factor, (optional big-block power, all that chrome including side spears and roof vent trim) or "Most Intriguing Rear View," (those classic triple tailights), or "Rolling Sculpture" (the rounded body lines, wrap-around windshield and curved rear fins) or "Most Striking Color Combination" (the coolest shade of red I have ever seen - inside and out!) Rear fender skirts would add even more bling.
