Kev's Classic

Here's my alternate tinkering. 64 Impala SS Convertible. I have owned this since I was 16 years old. It is my first real car. Had lots of fun with it as a teenager with hydraulics and skinny tires. Then it became my family car and daily driver for me and my wife.
In Sept.2000 I started a frame off resto. A long build still not done due to open heart surgery, a broken hip, then the economy went bad. I really want to finish it early this year.
I have more older pics but they are photos. Here some I have when I joined the digital age.

Yes and Yes. You should be a spy.Bottle and regulator are set up for cruises when I play with switches and compressor can't keep up.
Elco sold at the last Pomona swap.

Yes, Good Eye. I will run stock hubcaps and white walls for a while till I* can afford some Big Billets. Here's what it it looks like with 20s & 22s I don't care for the 22s cause it don't lay. so I'm thinking 18s & 20s or 20s all around?

Re: Kev's Classic

I think I remember seeing your Impala at Galvins show last year, nice ride man. I've been a big fan of your Blazer for sometime, I've seen it around at local shows, the Blazer is very clean!
