It's always a pleasure to see an Impala in person but the fun is more when you come across a beautiful convertible Impala!
The 1959 Chevy Impala Convertible
The 1959 Chevrolet Impala was redesigned. Sharing bodyshells with lower-end Buicks and Oldsmobiles as well as with Pontiac, part of a GM economy move, the Chevrolet's wheelbase was 1-1/2 inches longer. Using a new X-frame chassis, the roof line was three inches lower, bodies were two inches wider, and curb weight increased.Its tailfins protruded outward, rather than upward. The taillights were a large "teardrop" design at each side, and two slim-wide nonfunctional front air intake scoops were added just above the grille, The Impala became a separate series, adding a four-door hardtop and four-door sedan, to the two-door Sport Coupe and convertible. Sport Coupes featured a shortened roof line and wrap-over back window. The standard engine was an I6, while the base V8 was the carryover 283 cu in (4.6 L), at 185 hp (138 kW). Optional were a 283 cu in with 290 hp (220 kW) and 348 cu in (5.7 L) V8 up to 335 hp (250 kW). Standard were front and rear armrests, an electric clock, dual sliding sun visors, and crank-operated front vent windows. A contoured hooded instrument panel held deep-set gauges. A six-way power seat was a new option, as was "Speedminder", for the driver to set a needle at a specific speed and a buzzer would sound if the pre-set was exceeded.

911 up the kerb at Dijon (round 2) - and then we got fastest lap and P3 at Paul Ricard for the season closer
the car is now sold and delivered but it will always be a favourite - we set out to build a great 911 race car and I think we did just that
2 wheel drive, gas motor, faded paint, stock wheels and tires and lacking flavor. All of this is about to change in a hurry. Take a gander at the new Import Performance mobile soon to be outfitted with a Toyota turbo diesel, 4 wheel drive, new paint and a whole gamut of other epic elements! Good stuff on the way friends, have a great weekend!

Porsche 356 Speedster (1951-1955)
Porsche's first major style innovation since 1950 was the introduction of the "Speedster" in 1954. The little car was aimed squarly at the Californian market, where in its 1500S form it became a popular race car. 1955 saw a major change in engine specifications with the 1500 being replaced by the 1600, providing Porsche with their first genuine 100 mph production car and detail changes to the bodywork introduced as the 356A.
Porsche 356A (1955-1958)
Porsche needed a roadster to be inexpensive enough to compete with the British Triumph's and MG's at the time. They came up with the 356a Speedster – a model that came with only the basic necessities. It became popular with enthusiasts and racers and it became integrated into Californian culture where its basic configuration and lack of advanced weather equipment was not a big issue.
The 356A came with a low-cut and rounded front windscreen, a lightened body, special gearing which is why the Speedster was loved by racers. .
The 356a Speedster was powered by a 1.6-liter flat-four that featured a center-mounted camshaft and overhead valves. Power was sent to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission. Even though it had only 60hp it was rather light at just 1750 pounds, and that power was enough to get to 0-60mph in about 13.9 seconds and top speed came in at around 100mph.
