Chevrolet Bel Air Impala : our car in 1959
Question : what car did you had at the time ?
Well we had a Chevy like the one below, a two doors Chevrolet Impala Bel Air. Only difference is we had a blue one.
Remember the first time I drove in it (had to deliver on a 'students house' some eggs and some milk) and had to turn to the left in a busy street.... Ah that was a problem with such a big car, so I turned the next street to the right, did that another two times and I could go straight on (wasn't I clever ??).....
Remember how proud I was showing it to my at the time girlfriend Elly de Man.
Remember how nice she looked from the back (I mean the car ...). Don't you agree ?
Remember how I went in my last schoolyear to school with that car. Ah no-one had such a beauty.
Remember it could drive about a 150 miles an hour (or so) and well I did of course.
Remember it needed a lot of gasoline .....
But all good things come to an end.
The night before we went on holiday to the beach there was some lad who wasn't that careful and stroke against 12 cars in our street including ours. Although the car itself looked quite good it still was total-loss. It was too costly to repair the automatic gear of the engine. Must have somewhere some b/w pictures of that accident.
From time to time I think about buying such a car again....
Starting tomorrow there will be on my BLog a 4 piece story (...) about cars.
You can even hear the sound of that great Chevrolet Bel Air Impala yourself !!
