|1963 Chevrolet Impala SS, 327/300, Powerglide|
Ruby Tuesday 2 is back (as am I after our cable internet went out at an inopportune time where blogs needed to be posted last week). The direction, as always, a lot or a little red. True to one of my interests, and old car is the theme. It is a 1963 Chevy Impala SS sitting for its portrait in an urban setting on Bridge Street ins Ansonia. It looks fine either sitting or moving, as it is styled so well. The straight edges and small amounts of chrome give it a timeless look, the maroon paint flawless. An impressive looking car of its day...
The texture around the badge is the old concrete under the Impala adding a cool element to this view.
Useless but clever automotive trivia I have is found in the V-shaped emblem on the front wing. It indicates that this has the 327 V8 (added to the chrome chevron) as opposed to the smaller 283 V8 (no flags) or the larger 409. Things I knew that when I was 10 but still remember it now at a more um...advanced age. Like Patti said, Carhead 55 could have been my blogging name...see RT2 for more ruby treasures!
