1967-impala

GUYS I CAN HEAR MY MOM WATCHING THE NEWS IN THE BACKGROUND AND THERE WAS A NEWS FORECAST SAYING THAT TWO MEN IN A 1967 IMPALA SHOWED UP AT A MAN’S HOUSE AND PULLED HIM IN THE CAR WITH A GUN TO HIS HEAD AND DROVE OFF

THIS IS NOT A TEST, THIS IS REAL, THE APOCALYPSE IS STARTING AND I NEED TO HEED MY CALLING AS A HUNTER

It was funny, the first draft of the script it was a 65’ Mustang. My next door neighbor pimps out rides for a living, that’s what the guy does. And he tricks out classic automobiles. He happened to be outside and I was outside, and I said “Hey man” I said “Let me ask you a question. I’m writing this script, and they guys are - y’know - supposed to be in this muscle car crusin’ around the country. And I’m thinking like a 65’ Mustang. What do you think?” And he said “Oh yeah a 65’ Mustang’s perfect… if you’re a pussy.” And I said “Oh, well I can’t use that, then what car should I use?” And without hesitation, he said “67’ Chevy Impala. Cause’ you can fit a body in that trunk.”

"On April 21, 1967, the 100 millionth GM vehicle rolled off the line at the plant in Janesville — a blue two-door Caprice. There was a big ceremony, speeches; the lieutenant governor even showed up.

"Three days later, another car rolled off that same line. No one gave two craps about her. But they should have, because this 1967 Chevrolet Impala would turn out to be the most important car — no, the most important object — in pretty much the whole universe."

Happy Birthday Baby! April 24th
