YAK Car Pic of the Day

Some things take longer than others. Like the putting-back-together of this 1967 Chevy Impala two-door hardtop, which has been sitting out in front of a Tonawanda collision shop since… Wow!, for a long time now. If they’re waiting for parts, there’s gotta be a gazillion sources to find them, as they built over 575,000 Impalas alone in ’67, and close to a million full-sized Chevys (not even counting the station wagons) — I wouldn’t be surprised if someone’s got one in a garage down the street that’s just sitting there, waiting to be parted-out. This was the third year for the big Chevy’s basic shape; it wouldn’t be completely changed again until the 1969 models came out. All the while, Impala sales were steadily falling, while the upscale Caprice’s were on the rise.
