    Found on the back of a used car lot the other day, this warhorse could
    be brought back to life. Berwyn, Illinois.

    Why was it that the 58 Buicks and 58 Chevys looked so good with all the chrome? I had two friends, one with a 58 Del Ray and the other with an Impala. The Del Ray was impressive because it was built to race but the Impala was a bling covered cruiser and always attracted the crowd.

    Hello A,
    Funny you should mention the 58 Buicks and the 58 Chevy Impala. They were both part of our family car history. My dad just missed out on getting the most chrome on any Detroit car back from those days, by buying a 1957 Buick. His 1957 Model had a lot of chrome, but, our grandfather (on my wife's side) did buy a 58 Buick and it was a huge shiny car with a ton of chrome and bling.

    Those were great family cars with tons of room inside, except for two tall teenage boys in the back seat during our final family road trips.

    The 1958 Buick was noted as the car from Detroit that had the most chrome add-ons of any product made back then. And, maybe even now. It was a glitter bomb of a family car. Our family grandfather was 90 when he was still the primary driver in that small Santa Ana house.

    As far as the 58 Impala was concerned, there were different chrome add-on designs, to make it an unusual one of a kind, body style. By the way, the Biscaynes were not the only car used for drag racing.

    Yeah, I've seen and read about your brother's ( ? ) Impala and it's cool, but the two cars I was referring to were in the Oklahoma City area in 63. Greasy John Holiday's 348 powered Del Ray was pretty hot. I don't remember the guy's name who drove the Impala but the car was a chick magnet.
