When I was 14 the older kid up the block bought a new 65 Impala with a 396 and 4speed. Black on black. I luved that car. He moved up to a 68 goat which I’ve heard he still has. A few years later when I was25 I bought a 65 impala rag top with a 409 and 4 speed. White with black top and guts. Sold it to buy a Hemi GTX. Had mopars for quite a few years and then back to Chevy. Had a 70 LS6 Chevelle for awhile, then a 70 396 Chevelle and built a 56 Chevy 210. Tried to trade the 56 off on a one owner 65 impala 409 automatic red convert. Red guts and white top. The guy wouldn’t trade or sell.
Retired to V ancouver Island 10 years ago and have had 6 old Chevy trucks so far nothing special now, just a 98 sb gmc 4x4 and a 2007 red Dodge Charger. Got no garage now. Might buy something yet.
