A little story about the car:

I met this car about 16 years ago, it was for sale, but i could never have that kind of money back in the day, today a impala in poor condition costs here in Brasil about USD $20.000,00...

3 years ago, this car was listed for sale, fortunately i had just sold my 1995 Chevy Caprice and i was able to pick it up.

Car was in terrible shape, needed a carb rebuild, had no bushing on the arms, broken springs in the back and the to do list was huge!

I was able to fix the basic, made the car safe for driving and now after 40 months with the car, she is going to a total overhaul, going to be stripped down to the bare metal, remove all cancer, rebuild everything... hydros? YES! please follow, will take time, as everything is harder in Brasil!

A few pictures of the car during those years with me...
