1958 Impala

What a car!  First Generation Chevy Bel Air Impala built in 1958.

So shiny it was tough to photograph.
Crossed Flags
The signature crossed flags.
Dual Headlights
Dual headlamps.
Impala Steering Wheel
Two spoked steering wheel.
Wouldn’t you like to go for a spin?  I know I would.  I think I made the guy that owned this car a little nervous…and I tried not to drool on his car.

  5. Oh, I LOVED this car. I remember it well. Sliding in without a thought of a seat belt, the shifter on the steering wheel... it brought back memories all right. Is this the car that was called "Heavy Chevy" I wonder? :-)

  6. This is back in the day when each car was distinguishable from the others. This one is beautiful. My hubby's 66 GTO is very well protected.

  10. Today, it would be considered a death trap - but of course, it is the DRIVER that causes accidents.

    Beautiful car!

  13. So . . . it's sort of a Shiny Brite of autos? :-). The first car I ever bought . . . is the one I am driving now. In Smalltownville, all I needed was a good pair of shoes or my bike.

  14. when I was a kid I would follow and know all about the designs of all of the cars. I liked watching the evolution of the designs each year. My first cousin had one of these Impalas and it was red on the inside too. Gosh that was such a long time ago. Jerry is now in a nursing home.

  15. The 57's had very nice fins. My Dad had a 57 that may have been a biscayne(not quite sure). It would go 95 mph on a gravel road???

  16. Oh my goodness. I dated a guy along about that time who drove a car just like that except his was a convertible. His Impala was white with red interior too. I liked his car better than I liked him.

  17. Cool! My first car, two years old when my parents paid the downpayment on it for my graduation from college, was a white, two door hard top convertible 1964 Impala.
