My first car was a 1962 Chevrolet Impala convertible Hardtop. I loved that car and drove it for two years in 1975 and 1976 and then I parked it because I needed a family vehicle. I parked it at a sister-in-laws house and promptly forgot how much it had meant to me.

I wish I had kept it and I keep telling myself I am going to find another one some day, but truthfully I don’t see that. I loved that car though.
