Nice. Cool. Sharp

Pow! That front profile is in your face! With it's big square face. Classic red, no emblems, zero extra chrome, a perfect addition.

The last shot is immense too, I don't think modern wagons share that formula of "just multiply the cargo space and feet of glass by two". Really like how the shadow features that subtle contour that builds to the back.

We need a tag for impressive parking jobs.

By looking at the last picture, it confirms my suspicion that it's a three-on-the-tree.
Look at the way the front wheels are turned pointing out, so that if the clutch "slips", the wheels will dig into the curb to keep it from rolling back down hill. Anyone remember that ever happening?

Beautiful lines! Despite the tacky respray and wheels.

Respray I can handle, but those wheels look terrible on it. Slotmags with redwall tires...now that'd look good.

This car is not an Impala but it is a Biscayne which is the base model.

those wheels are so weak. it's like the arms are swinging in unison with the swagger. like a crosseyed stone mason. Like spaghetti with ketchup. I bet that piece of paper in the window is an apology for those god awfull wheels.

Parking On A Hill

When you park:

On a sloping driveway, turn the wheels so the vehicle will not roll into the street if the brakes fail.
Headed downhill, turn your front wheels into the curb or toward the side of the road. Set the parking brake.
Headed uphill, turn your front wheels away from the curb and let your vehicle roll back a few inches. The wheel should gently touch the curb. Set the parking brake.
Headed either uphill or downhill when there is no curb, turn the wheels so the vehicle will roll away from the center of the road if the brakes fail.
Always set your parking brake and leave the vehicle in gear or in the "park" position.

Definitely San Francisco! I just saw this car last weekend in the city. Would have photographed it myself had I been able to find a place to park. Missed a lot of good cars that day due to lack of parking spaces.
