When I comes to preference I am a sucker for classic autos that have been given the full restorative modification treatment. This beautiful example
of a tribute to American horsepower and high tech handling and braking will be rolling across the block at the Mecum auction in Houston in April. (I'll be watching and expecting a buyer in the $80K range)

The “X” style frame, 2 piece driveline made the 58 to 64’s a bit of a sled. I had a 62 Impala SS with a 427. It was a fast car but couldn’t catch the Camaro’s or Nova’s.

Always like the looks of those early sixties GM "bubble top" coupes, would hate to roll one because those roof pillars look a little delicate but they're pretty cars. Always thought the '62 Bonneville was the prettiest of the lot.

But I am old school. I really like dead-on Dealer Showroom (on the outside) restorations.
But dropping a ‘Vette engine into that frame was inspired!
