1965 Impala SS NASCAR - Morning practice Infineon Raceway Sears Point Oct 30, 2011
Oct 30, 2011 HSCRS (Historic Stock Car Racing Series) Morning practice in my 1965 Impala SS NASCAR with my Mom in the right seat enjoying every minute of it (legs crossed just enjoying the ride!). Amazing what 40 years of stock car development will do including lots of point bys but hell of a lot of fun running with the newer cars!

1965 Chevy Impala SS NASCAR Grand National Stock Car - 1st engine start
This is the first engine start of this Roy Mayne 1965 Chevy Impala SS in
over 40+ years. The engine is a Chevy Big Block 427 (396 .60 over) 60s era
NASCAR spec motor. This is the real deal. This car raced from 1965 - 1967
in the NASCAR Grand National Stock Car series on such famous tracks as
Daytona and Darlington. Roy's best finish was at Darlington in 1965 when he
finish 4th in this car.
This car is being restored in under 30 days to compete in this years 2010

note the flickering you see on the dash is due to a bad ground, something
we fixed after I took the video
65 Chevy Impala SS open headers irritates my neighbor
Here's my original high school car, numbers matching (327 c.u.i.) bought in
1972. Decided to open the headers and cruise around my subdivision a
little, but end up ticking off my neighbor. I didn't even drive by his
house - he lives up the block the opposite direction. When he heads to the
back of my car to take a pic of my license plate, I realize this could turn
against me. Funny thing is, he doesn't actually recognize me until I get
out of the car - then we "share the love".
NASCAR 1965 Firecracker 400 NASCAR
The July 4th classic.
Cars were becoming real racing machines...Drivers had to have the acumen of
Eagles. Both come together to run at the edge of daring and technology
1965 Chevy Impala SS Hardtop Yel
An outstanding example! I like this Chevy restyle of 1965...the first with
curved side window glass and a car that looks wider than its predecessor.
The interior is top flite here. Factory air makes it habitable in Florida!
