One finds a lot of interesting things roaming around central Ohio. The combination of Big City surrounded by Farmland is bound to result in things sticking around in various forms of use and disuse. Still, thus far, nothing has been able to top this particular barn find I stumbled across: a gorgeous candy-apple red ’58 Impala just hanging out in a field!
Chevrolet’s 1958 Impala is one of my very favourite cars—certainly in my top ten. This love affair began early in my life, but was cemented during a little cruise I took up and down Woodward one midsummer evening. Exiting Birmingham, I found myself behind a showroom-gorgeous emerald ’58 convertible, her horizontal fins mesmerizing me enough that I followed the car far beyond my intention just to gape at her. Sunset, classic cars—they go together very well, and it’s a drug this gal finds irresistible.
I found this beauty a little before the magic hour, but she was beautiful anyhow (even with the Continental kit, something I’m not really a fan of, it must be said).
