Chevy Impala

1959 Chevy Impala

1960 Impala

Another sign of spring. I see more and more vintage cars out on the roads again. The top photo shows a 1959 Impala, spotted at the Port 73 Mall yesterday. Imported from the US just two years ago. We import around 5000 classic cars from the US to Sweden every year. And for good measure I added a second photo. Another Chevy Impala, but this one is the 1960 model, I shot that photo last Summer.

Love the fins on the back, but it needs white-wall tires. Nice motor.

Patty and I owned one just like this except for the color. I used to buy a new car every year and did so for many years. Sometimes I would buy two new ones.

1958 Impala! Very nice. We had a 1957 Ford Fairlane - bought it new but it was a piece of junk. Traded it for a 1955 Chevy which was great.

This one is in nice shape.

Excellent classic

You have written before that many Swedes are enamoured of old American cars. Odd! But, I can easily see why they would be attracted to these two Chevrolets. They were made at the end of the "fin" era.

Ah, the good old days, when no one was embarrassed to have an embarrassing car. The vmall (and unsafe) Ford Falcon and Chevy Corvair followed these behemoths by just a couple of years.
