Ode to the Fathorn Green 69 Impala

I was thinking back to my "glory days" earlier this week when I was talking to a young man who had just bought a new (used) Jeep. I was telling him how lucky he was to have such a nice ride and that he wouldn't know if the girls liked him or his ride. I was telling him about how it was to try to pick up chicks driving a puke green Chevrolet Impala 4 door. He didn't know what that was.  But today, we have the internet and Google - so, I was able to find a picture on the Chevrolet website. This is it folks.

Now, I know what you're thinking, sweet ride, right? Well mine didn't quite look that good. I got it in about 1976 and so it had a little wear on it from 7 years of my lead-footed Mama driving it.
