July 4, 2018: Spotted on the Road, Carson City


Found this classic 1958 Chevrolet Impala parked outside the Courthouse in Carson City, Nevada.  We were there to pick up my older son's wedding license, so it was a good day!


The '58 Impala is one of my favorites of the older GM cars.  While still nicely preserved, it was not a restored collector's car.  It showed some wear and tear and looked as though it had been regularly used for the past 60 years as a commuting car.  Talked briefly to its owner as he came out and, indeed, the car had been in his family for almost 60 years.  Not a perfect car, but a gently used and much loved specimen.
