Car Watching - 1965 Chevrolet Impala Super Sport

Into the lot pulled a 1965 Chevrolet Impala Super Sport today.  It was a sight for sore eyes, being the middle of winter.  Do you know how hard it is to spot cool cars...especially vintage iron...when it's 20 degrees outside?
 This was a 327 V8 car, and the owner had taken the time to do a fairly nice job of restoring this wonderful piece of Chevrolet history.  He did it himself, although his son had started the project with him.  Girls soon took the boy in a different direction, so dear old Dad finished it by his lonesome.
 The body was great, and the "Super Sport" script was on point.
 The interior was dandy.  White vinyl.  And that cue ball shift lever gave the nod to a kick ass manual transmission.  I should have gotten a couple more shots of the interior, as it was really nice.
 Good looking fastback roofline has always drawn me to this years car.
 Oh, those individual circular tail lights....love them.  The bumpers were looking fine, too.
 Looking down the side of the car was a treat.  He did a great job on the body of this one.
Muscular, great paint, 327 V8, manual transmission....I was really, really happy to see this one today!
