I was working swingshift (4pm-midnight) six days a week (day off being a Tue, Wed or Thur), so my father was tasked with finding me a car. My only real requirements were it had to be a GM vehicle, V8 and a stick shift. Imaging my surprise when was told he had bought a 1967 Impala ss fastback with a 396 and a 4 speed! It even had a high-rise intake manifold w/Holly 780 cfm double-pumper. Needless to say, I wish I still had it.
