    You have some great looking cars! Seeing a white on white two door like your Impala coupe from your website is what makes me wish the previous owner would have left mine white rather than changing it to match the interior.

    Thank you for updating and keep the pics coming. More pictures from under the hood are always appreciated as well.

    Welcome to the forum! What a fine example of a 79! The chrome looks fantastic and the body panels look super straight! I love those wheels. I used to have a set exactly like them on mine years ago. I bought my first one in 1994 also and had it for 10 years. I really like your Camaros too. I'm a big fan of the 2nd generation Camaro and Trans Am also.

    Thank you for so many answears , yes the 2 door  white impala from
    my webside was from79 it belonged to my father but he sold the car
    to a good friend and he put it into a garage and he realy never used
    the car on the street .I would like to buy the car back and try to restore it
    to a better  condition but  the friend of my father does not want to sell it .
    One thing is true , there  are not many box caprice left on the street
    in europe, most of them you can see only on US car meetings.Most of them
    are naturally not used for everyday drive .I have one question how
    does it looks like with spare parts like  importand body parts like
    headlights, or turning lights or for example chrom parts which are important
    when you restore a car and you would like the car to look great  in the U.S today.
    The engine parts are easily to get because the chevy small block is used
    in many other cars.

    It is always funny to drive a car like this here in europe , everybody
    turns around and looks on you and on the gas station the most question you are
    asked for is how much fuel your car needs for 100km (miles) i always
    answear as much as i feel in Laughing

    Thanks for posting the video! Your car looks great! These cars sure look good rolling down the road don't they?

    As for gas mileage, when it comes to my classic cars, I don't pay much attention to miles per gallon, it's more about smiles per gallon for me!
