Arcadia prices are stupidly and artificially inflated.. South Bay/SF are just as bad.. hate it. But I don't ever want to live in Arcadia.

it's funny, that's where I was born and raised....amazing how much the city has changed the last 20-25 years. Don't even recognize it when I go back. My parents and oldest brother are still there.....could never go back. We'll make it back down south one of these days...probably back to Huntington Beach

I'm right next door and I foresee the changes coming to us as well. That's why I told my parents to re-invest in their house and stay put, I see it blowing up soon


If you're ever back down to visit them, holler!

It has changed? i think it still looks the same for the most part. Maybe i go there too much.

Arcadia Mall has changed a lot tho.. they might as well call it Mall.

Nah, definitely not military. Sales guy. Had a startup fold while down in LA and decided I needed a change of scenery....ended up in NC....found the current startup I'm with now.....was first sales guy.....moved out west, run our global sales team now....got acquired, went public...reaping the rewards. WC is nice, but it's suburbia fucking hell. All my neighbors are either in their 40's with kids my kids age, or 70+....

I'd sure like to see a couple shots under the hood. The V8s available at the time were 283, 327, or the 409 Big block. https://www.chevyhardcore.com/news/i...-options-1964/

are you gonna mod it or keep it stock?

I think that car with some wheels will be the most Gangsta car in your neighborhood.

The Impala looks enormous next the 911. In front of the Magnum, it definitely seems less of a land yacht.

May have just picked these up since that picture was taken...

Kind of lucked out. I had been in touch with the company earlier this week to make a set, and they told me a 12 week wait. Browsing Facebook marketplace this morning and bam. Not only is there a set for sale, but they are off this '62 Impala that made me like the wheels. Picked up 5 wheels and tires for less then the cost of 3 new. And they have virtually no miles on them.


I went and did something...-photo331.jpg

I was going to say skirts when I first saw it. Then you posted it with the new wheels and definitely no skirts. That looks really good.

I think it would be more hood if it was a convertible... easy for drive bys... But the coupe is still very G.

Keep that thing locked good. I am sure many eyes are on it already.
