LIMA — Rick Musser, of Lima, searched 10 years before finding this 1960 Chevy Impala convertible. He has owned it for six years now. Musser is the fourth owner of this beauty.
Like most car enthusiasts, his fondness for Impala’s can be traced back to his formative years. Musser owned three Impala’s during his high school years. His memories of kids piling in and going places made him ache for another one.
“It was so much fun,” Musser said.
The 1960 Chevy Impala saw designers going back to the three round taillights on each side of the car that make the Impala stand out from the crowd. The designers reshaped the “bat wing” tail fins. The 1960 Chevy Impala became the best-selling automobile in the U.S. and held that position for the next decade.
Musser says he has learned a lot about buying a classic car. He and his wife enjoy cruising around when the weather permits.
“It always turns heads, and the usual comment is, ‘My father or grandfather had one just like it,’” Musser said.
