Default Pics : Chevrolet Impala's+ Dodge Kingsway + Dodge Dart

Hi guys,

Heres a pic of one of the best maintained Impala's in Mumbai. This is one helluva American Muscle car other than the Mustang which is pretty rare to find in Mumbai.

Cool pic V12 . This car is parked in the lane behind National College isnt it. I also saw a red Dodge there. It belongs to the same guy who owns that blue Rolls which was the first to arrive at the Phantom launch. Hes the guy who owns the garage near Candies. Has the Mini as well. Plus saw the CBR 954 in the same building

Exclamation

I've seen the Impala from close and the body is well maintained, the quality of paint is good, the car seems the best when its polished. All fittings that I noticed were fine [I was close to the car for very less time]. The only thing that I didn't like was that the tires of the cars are very thin.

I don't know about the CBR954, but I've seen a yellow 2004 Honda CBR 600 F there.

I had posted pics of the Dodge Kingsway on Formula India. Those were taken by a friend with his cell camera. I took more pics of the Dodge Kingsway with my digicam. Will post them in a new thread soon.

P.S. This guy also owns a red Mercedes 380SL Convertible [not sure about "380SL" since I don't know much about the old SL's except the 300SL but it looked somewhat like the 380SL below], will try to get pics of the car soon.

Hey fellows, excellent pictures. That's the 1959 Dodge Kingsway, I believe.

The 1958 Kingsway looked like this.


As aah78 has mentioned somewhere, there was one in our family.
