Hottest car in L.A. is a 69 Impala??
this guy who has been building selling cars since 73 says this 69 Impala big block is the hottest car in los angeles right now. this in response to my asking if he was gonna junk it after he pulled the big block out of it. he has a 67 malibu in his garage he's putting a big block in that he says is pre sold to a car dealer near Seattle for $18,000. he paints them himself. i guess he knows what he's talking about. i wouldnt own a 69 impala or any other year impala for that matter myself, but especially not a 69 LEAD SLED like that!!! if you want something to drop and put whitewalls and a tv antenna on then okay, but if i am going to get 8 mpg i want something that goes fast. if i want a cruiser i'll drive my moms caddy. 06-22-2004 10:38 AM

If you believe all this guy tells you. AHEM! I have some property for sale. Tidewater estates, excellent view of the water, good location,etc....etc....etc...

As a young lad (LONGGGGG time ago) I had a 69 witha 327 and about 250,000 on the clock. Thing ran awesome and got about 17mpg. Smoked the tires at will !!

I think I'd have a hard time giving any more for it now than back in 78. About $400.00

Ahhhh....I just love these.."Fastest car in Town" stories............

My mom used to have the fastest car in Pasadena, Super Stock know the rest.

I always love the guys in the beater 6 banger Camero or Mustang that dont wanna race, but they have a cousin or uncle who always somehow has a 9 sec street car that will race you. If most people realized how fast an 11 sec street car was it would scare em.
Funny how I never see em in it though.:confused: HG

whadddayy mean you don't like impalas.......(sniff sniff):(
i might not set any land speed records but my 66 moves along ok!

thems fightin words:boxing:

i'm just kidding i know impalas don't have a wide fan base. but i think i know a member who could use a good donor 69

well, first off we are not in LA we're in WASH. he's just saying he can make a gob of money on this thing. it hadda straight body. he has like 3 corvettes (and one or two COEs and lots of other cars too. he said he'd rather drive this imp over a malibu any day cause it's so much more road worthy. haha. i dont understand how he can say that and then get in his corvette and drive to work every day. a boat is a boat. F what they do in LA anyway. the people there only want that car for a low rider and they have no taste. i am amazed that one of you said you got 17 mpg with this land yaght! my dad hadda 67 bonneville and it seemed at the time it got about ten.

but the bottom line is what you picked up on, he's just totally full of ****** cause a mexican told me the hot ticket was mid 80's junk for low riders. (mexicans never lie) ondile'!

every time i see one of those cars bouncing around or moving along on three wheels it just makes me want to cry

cause i just don't get it

does this idiot go on for a full 30 minuites i filled my daily moron quotta after 3 min.

Yup, he does. Like the frog halfway down the snakes throat, he never gave up.

Big cars are excellent cruisers. I love 'em. Intown mileage may not be that great but with good tuning they do ok.

Just like what we choose to hotrod, it's a matter of personal preference.

Well at least a 69 impala isnt a belly button car.
And if someone hits you they will know it.

helrazr3 06-22-2004 09:41 PM

i'm sorry but what is a bellybutton car? does it matter if it is pierced?

sway 06-22-2004 09:42 PM

helrazr3 06-22-2004 09:47 PM
