The story revolves around the author's admiration for the stylish car designs of the 1950s and 60s, particularly the 1961 Chevy Impala Bubbletop. The author finally found a candidate - an Almond Beige 1961 Chevy Impala and purchased it from Street Machinery in Euclid, Ohio. The author then started working on the car, replacing the straight-six-cylinder engine with a 350ci small-block Chevy and a 700R4 automatic transmission.
The engine was given a matte gold finish, and several modifications were made, such as adding a Holley Street Demon carb, Edelbrock air cleaner, Drive Junky serpentine system, and a custom exhaust system. To improve the car's handling, a four-corner air-ride system, power steering conversion, and bigger anti-sway bars were installed. The car also received Corvette-style disc brakes and Billet Specialties wheels. Inside, the car remains mostly stock, except for a Retro Sound stereo system, and the author plans to install a new complete interior kit in the near future. The story concludes by emphasizing the iconic status of the 1961 Chevy Impala Bubbletop.
