At one point of our Urbis Design Day circuit, we passed this stylish vehicle. A Chevrolet Impala (Wikipedia describes this as a “full-size automobile”…) from 1959. Alex, the proud owner was at hand and kindly agreed to pose with his pet. He had it restored to mint condition a couple of years ago, and obviously looks after it. Probably never saw a parking building from the inside. Rejuvenates me just looking at it.
Hey, does that say “Tow Away” in the lower picture? When we came back, the car had disappeared. Ominous.
The Impala is a species of gazelle from Africa (“Capable of leaping and bounding to avoid predators, fleet-footed impalas roam the savannas and plains of Africa” is the caption on the linked article).
