San Jose Street Sighting - 1962 Chevrolet Impala sedan
I happened upon this example while going out to breakfast with a friend. The owner had parked it outside the restaurant in the hope of grabbing attention from passersby who might want to buy it. It certainly caught my attention. It's a V8 car that wears Super Sport spinner hubcaps, but appears to be a regular Impala since it doesn't have any other SS badging. I like the pale yellow color and the chrome is good. Really it looks like all the car needs is a good wash and a dent removal on the front of the hood. All in all, it looks like a fine daily-driver classic. I wonder what someone might trade for it.
