1968 Impala Fastback

This well preserved 1968 Chevrolet Impala was spotted on Highway 5 near Sacramento. Light rainy weather conditions prompted the car's driver the clutch on to the large steering wheel with both hands. The driver, as well as the car's over-all appearance, appear to be original. This huge white car, with it's dramatic fastback styling, was easy to spot from a far distance. My co-pilot snapped these photos as we rolled by.

Land Yacht anchored in Lake Tahoe

Fins where sighted close to shore, or more correctly, on shore in South Lake Tahoe this weekend. Rain, sleet, nor snow could keep this 1961 Cadillac Coupe DeVille from dropping anchor near the Tahoe Queen (seen in the backround). The 1961 Cadillacs featured both upper and lower pedestrian impaling tail fins gracing the port and starboard sides, making any other car look like a fish out of water. This space-age land yacht reflects the optimistic American time in which it was produced. The personal luxury space-craft of the future.
