I stumbled onto this old Chevy Impala in my travels around Stratford yesterday. It is a 1958 model so next year will be 60 years old. This one is dolled up about as much as you can get. It even has fender skirts which I haven’t seen on cars in many years. What I like about this classic car is the owner has not modified it in any way that I could see. If I see an old car that has been hot rodded out, I just pass it by. Not interested. One personal reason I am fond of this car is my family had a 1958 Chevy but the most basic model you could get – a Biscayne. I am not even sure it had a radio. It was grey in colour and four doors. I loved that vehicle but was only seven when it arrived on our farm. It was our family’s second brand new car, the first being a 1953 Ford. Starting in 1953, and for the rest of their lives, my parents bought a new car every few years.
