(8-25)  Dawn sent me some great Impala photos from various car shows she and her Dad have attended around Cincinnati and Dayton.

1962 white Impala SS



1968 red Impala 327 Wagon



1963 red Custom Convertible



Interior (Sweet!)



As a bonus, Dawn also shared her Impala minature collection, including the 1967 black one that came out with the Season Three DVDs.  She also has a 1994 miniature, which looks like her Dad's car.  Hey, I have that Supernatural shot glass!



Thank you so much Dawn for sharing!

(8-14)  In a few hours, I'm off to Michigan for the weekend for the obligatory family visit and to attend the infamous Woodward Dream Cruise on Saturday.  As much as I'd love to say I'm going there to show off my classic Mustang (I'm a Ford girl), instead we'll be going up and down the strip with our 2008 Escape with moonroof open.  Someday...

I went to the cruise last year and got some great shots of some 1960's Impalas.  Considering we have a Got Winchester thing going, why not document Impala sightings?  This is not limited to 67 impalas, although you get HUGE points if you spot one and share.  They are really hard to come by.  As long as it's in the muscle car era (no 2006s thank you) we're good. 

(8-22)  2009 Dream Cruise Sightings

There were not many 60's Impala's there at all (I was told because automotive company sponsorship was nil this year) but I did find one 1967 Impala.  It's in black!  Yes, it's only a two door, has an all black interior and it's an SS (the one on the show is not), but it was still awesome.  Best one I've seen personally yet. 










Here's at 1965 beauty in white, with some awesome custom wheels:



Here's another great 1965 in yellow.

Before that though, Tigershire has a 1967 beauty on her site.  Check it out!

Hey Alice,
Thanks for the link. I'm a Ford girl myself too but there are many, many of the muscle cars that I love.

A guy I dated many moons ago, mother had a yellow 67 Impala convertible that had been converted to propane (poor girl) that I wish I had gotten pictures off because she'd been garage kept for years and was in lovely condition.

I'm sure we could get going telling stories of particular cars - ie, my parents owned a 66 Cutlass Supreme when I was little and a fellow who worked for my dad when I was a tween had a 70 Roadrunner - purple complete with prismatic dashboard - there is just something about this era of cars.

Vvrrrooommmmm!

Hi! I've been reading your columns for months now & love them! Supernatural has been my favorite show from the very 1st episode. I've not commented before, but just had to since I saw the gorgeous Impala pics. I'm a muscle car girl, although I must confess to being a GM girl, probably since my dad has always had GM cars in his driveway & worked at the Chevy plant in Cincinnati in the early 70s. I grew up riding in Olds, especially 1968s. He had everything from 442s to a Cutlass wagon (no other family had a station wagon like ours!) to a convertible Olds Delmont 88. Right now he has a 94 Impala SS, black (of course) with leather interior. Since he retired last year, I've been spending more time with him, especially going to car shows, scoping out the Impalas of course. Haven't seen any 67s, but lots of other years. Now if I could figure out how to post the pics I've taken...
