If you dropped that out of a plane...could you land it like a glider?

I gave it a provisional like because it's green.

As oddly-styled as they are, those 1959 Chevrolet Impalas seem to grow on you.

That one has the crossed flags.  I thought that only Corvettes had those emblems back then.

I had a friend that owned a Lotus Europa.

His most often remarks were, You don't get in it, you put it on and This thing will go around corners so fast it'll throw your radio out of tune.

I drove it many times

A very good sports car as long as you didn't need to back up.

BIL and I bought a damaged Lotus Elan and resold it after finding out the rear A arm was snapped off.  The buyer just arc'ed it back together.  I wouldn't have the nerve.  The front silver painted bumper was really just Foam underneath the paint.

They put them on the 327 and the 409's.

The precursor to the Super Sport option to come?

The parachute in the back is a nice touch.  Must limit the top end a little.

You have to love those 20+ inch steering wheels.

Young'uns don't understand that they had to be that big to turn those huge wheels and crappy tires without power steering.

That dashboard is just exquisite.

Yes!  Remember when you had to get the car even slightly moving to turn the wheel...……..

I recall how adventurous it was to get Power steering and eventually, "Rack and Pinion steering"
