Ed's 1962 Impala SS comes to use from Parlin New Jersey. He bought the car in February 1996, mostly in the condition you see it in. The body was already done, and it was in running condition. He has done a lot of engine work and still have about 3 things he would like to do before it would be considered 100% original. It was originally sold out of Hoffman Chevy as a showroom car in September 1962. Hoffman Chevy is still open for business today. Ed said he has been to busy to do research as to how many people owned it before him. The title states that Ed's the 3rd owner and it has the original 68,000 miles, but he don't know how true that holds. He love's bringing it to cruise nights. It has a 283 with a 2 spd powerglide.

This 62 Chevy II 400 Sport Coupe come to us
from South Plainfield. Joseph's mother was the original owner of the Nova.
She bought it new in August of 1962. As a school teacher in South Plainfield,
they lived literally across the street from school, so mileage was really
kept to a minimum. His mom drove this car daily until 1986. At that point,
Joseph was in 8th grade, but begged her to keep it for him when he turned
17. It then became his sisters mode of transportation to Rutgers University,
and finally his. During college it sat for 4 years in Joseph grandparents
garage, and upon graduating he drove it only ocassionally, summer and
winter breaks. Joseph bought a Corvette when he got his first "real job"
after school, and the Nova slowly started rotting away as the Vette got
the garage. It sat for about 8 years, but this past year he has been slowly
bringing her back to life, as she is still all original and a part of
the family! Orignal paint, chrome, etc. She runs pretty well now, and
Joseph is saving for the day when all the body work can be done to bring
her back to new!

John purchased his 64 sight unseen off the net.
It was in South Plainfield N.J. His journey with this car was like all
other adventures, a rocky one. When John took delivery of the Impala it
was a rust bucket to say the least. The gentleman, he purchased it from
had told him it was full of rust and he did not lie. John's first car
ever was a 1964 Impala and he always wanted another. John finished a complete
restoration in September of 1999. The first show that he went to he was
awarded the peoples choice. He was very excited with that. Since then
John's 64 has been in CHEVY TIMES magazine August 2000. He has won many
awards with his Impala, but the best award was the class winner at SUPER
CHEVY SHOW IN GAINESVILLE. He took home the BIG CAR CLASS FIRST PLACE
