Hey guys,

I was looking through my grandpas old garage the other day, admiring his classic chevrolets. I noticed a thin tire barely sticking out of what I thought was a pile of blankets and other misc. stuff in the back corner of the garage. I instantly knew what it was and felt like a fool for forgetting it existed... Granted, I had only seen/rode it a few times when I was about 9 or 10. My grandpa passed when I was 12 and my grandma currently has moderate-severe dementia... so I'm taking it upon myself to see that his Chevys and this little fella return to working condition. To think that all his work has been sitting in a garage for 8+ years now, gathering dust, really bothers me. Time to change all that! Enough talk here's some pics of the bike!

For those wondering about my grandpas Chevrolets... I will probably update this thread with specs and details of them along with pics, but for now... Here's a small teaser

Awesome find! Makes me think of Mad Men where they're saying a japanese motorcycle company (Honda) will never be able to make cars :lawl:

Little did they know Honda was plotting to take over the car world... and then give it back, lol.

Dem Impalas. :drool:

My grandpa was quite the Impala fan, to say the least! The newer one has less than 2,000 miles on it..... :wub:

Sweet garage. In for more pics of Americana. I don't think I've ever seen that old of a Camaro in that good of shape...

I can't believe that late model Impala has that low of mileage....thing's worth quite a bit to the right buyer.
