Chevrolet Impala 3rd gen. (1965-1970)

June 11th, 2008 by Rolph · 6 Comments

Back on the Coolhaven, I spot me this nice purple Chevrolet Impala. It is big, it is long, and it is… very purple! Perhaps not the most practical of cars, it nonetheless is a car that really has some presence to it. It can’t be compared to its current namesake, but hey, what else is new? Enjoy some rainy pictures

From Wikipedia:

One of both General Motors’ and America’s most successful auto nameplates, the Impala was often the best-selling automobile in its formative years when full-sized cars dominated sales. The 1965 sales of over one million units still stands as a record. The current version of the Impala is the 8th best selling vehicle (of any kind) and 5th best selling car in the United States and has the distinction of being the top selling American nameplate sedan, according to Reuters Top 20 Best-selling Vehicles Scorecard for the calendar year of 2007.

    Rolph, you’re welcome. I hope the website won’t be blocked by a spamfilter, but Works with MD5-hash. Not difficult to do.
