Random Car Wednesday: 1964 Chevrolet Impala
Austin has great car culture. Even going beyond big events like the Lone Star Roundup, people still like to cruise around and embrace that 60's state of mind. Today's RCW is a perfect cruising car, especially on a sunny afternoon. The 1964 Impala was at the top of Chevy's fullsize totem pole, and had been there since its introduction in 1958. The 1964 model year in particular became somewhat immortalized as a lowrider, and is commonly associated with that subculture. This beautiful green convertible, however, is decidedly more American muscle, especially with those Torq-Thrusts. Apart from the wheels, the car also boasts a new radio and aftermarket exhaust. Otherwise, the car is very original, including some basic wear and tear. The grille and bumper have a couple of dents and deformations and the badging is missing or crooked in places, but none of that is particularly important. It's a car meant for carefree driving, not Pebble Beach. Just how I like it.
