Welcome to Found Around The District, where we highlight fascinating cars we find around a city where people are too busy fighting through traffic and hunting for parking to drive anything interesting: Washington, D.C.
Considering the last new 1967 Chevrolet Impala rolled off the assembly line 45 years ago, we'd say this original wagon that's traveled a mere 31,000 miles is about as close as you can get to factory fresh.
Chevrolet went bare bones when it came time to advertise their redesigned 1967 Impala Sport Coupe. One neurotic spokesperson, a driveway and one brand new Marina Blue Impala Sport Coupe were all it took to create this silly vintage advertisement.
Remember the urban legend about the guy who strapped a JATO rocket to his 1967 Chevy Impala and drove it into the side of a cliff at 300 mph? Paul "Hot Rod" Stender built a 10,000-hp salute to that guy.
Let's continue with the vintage Car & Track road tests with this visit to the race track by the new 1969 Chevrolet Impala. The reviewer seems more concerned with the lackluster 2-barrel 396 than he does with the alarming handling.
What would you pay for a NASCAR veteran '65 Impala, allegedly driven by Roy Mayne? Crazed modelmaker ParkRNDL tipped us about this car more than a week ago, but then our friends at Bring A Trailer discovered it.
Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. We haven't seen many Impalas in this series, and today's car is our first Impala convertible.
