Great Story! I saw an excerpt of this in a commercial on TV.

A 1965 Impala SS 396 w/4spd is a cool car. My first car was a 1962 impala SS Convertible. Wish I had that car back !!

Wink OMG!!!!!


Watched this, actually got TEARS in my eyes and called Pat in to watch it too.

Except that mine was a convertable - it WAS MY FIRST performance car!!! The 396 (Mark IV) 425 was outrageous scary fast!!! Man was that car STRONG - right out of the box. when I popped the clutch and hit the throttle, the whole car would just rise up, rocket forward and howl. Nothing and I mean nothing, EVER beat me.

According to recent articles re: development of the "big block" Chevy engine, they listed the power as 425HP; however, in reality it was more like 450!

The sound alone was worth the price of admission. That sucker could twist 7K in each of the first 3 gears without running out of breath and would be well OVER a hundred MPH going into 4th. Every time!


Unforgettable. Geez.

Thank you for the post.
