In 1974 I bought 2 tires that were on the back of this car for $15 only to find out I had to wait till the car went to the junk yard. So I took the car and put in a transmission and drove it for 4 years. After that it sat in the yard for a year and my brother inlaw asked if he could have it. He stored it in a lean to shed until about 2007 and now he has it looking pretty good.
That is my bother inlaw in the black shirt.

No I haven't seen the car yet. It was supposed to be here for a show the other day but they were calling for rain so he canceled. He lives on one of the islands out in the straight.

First car I owned was a 62 Impala, Marina Blue with a white conv top. 283 with powerglide. Of all the cars I've owned, that's the first on the list I wished I'd of kept.

Nice looking car Neal!

I am not sure but I think he put a 409 in it. But is was the 283 when I had it. I am still trying to find the guy that gave it to me.

Doesn't anyone here read Backwoodsman magazine? A few issues ago they had an article by a guy who converted his Hyundai Accent hatchback into an RV and lived in it for months. Looked pretty comfy!
