Spotted this beautiful 1969 Chevrolet Impala Coupe in Venice, CA not long ago. It is sporting a 327 badge and draped in a deep blue. Apart from the missing trim piece along the waistline and the sizable dent above the rear wheel, this Impala looks to be in great shape aesthetically. I can only hope that the 327 V8 is equally as healthy to propel this beast down the road. Enjoy

Something must be said about the subdued nature of old work trucks. It is in their utilitarian “blood” to be used, abused and receive snarling glances from passer-bys. This C-10 Chevy is one of those examples. Tattered and torn, this truck shows the tell-tale signs of age, use and probably a little neglect. But as it is parked on the street, I assume that 327 under the hood still puts the ponies to the pavement.

The Chevy Camaro, arguably a result of Ford’s introduction of the Mustang. Nonetheless an iconic staple in American Muscle Car history. This ’68 Camaro was a 327 model, a middle of the road trim level for 1968. It looks to have original wheels and body panels. Also, that antenna fascinates me Just look past the gaudy stickers!
Some information about the First Generation Camaro via Wikipedia:
The first-generation Camaro debuted in September 1966, for the 1967 model year, up to 1969 on a new rear-wheel drive GM F-body platform and was available as a two-door coupé or convertible with 2+2 seating, and a choice of 230 cu in (3.8 L), 250 cu in (4.1 L) inline-6 or 302 cu in (4.9 L), 307 cu in (5.0 L), 327 cu in (5.4 L), 350 cu in (5.7 L), and 396 cu in (6.5 L) V8 powerplants. Concerned with the runaway success of the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet executives realized that their compact sporty car, the Corvair, would not be able to generate the sales volume of the Mustang due to its rear-engine design, as well as declining sales, partly due to the negative publicity from Ralph Nader’s book, Unsafe at Any Speed. Therefore, the Camaro was touted as having the same conventional rear-drive, front-engine configuration as the Mustang and Chevy II Nova. In addition, the Camaro was designed to fit a variety of power plants in the engine bay. The first-generation Camaro lasted until the 1969 model year and eventually inspired the design of the new retro fifth-generation Camaro.
The first-generation offered a standard, Super Sport, and Rally Sport editions. In 1967, the Z/28 model was added featuring stripes on the hood and trunk, styled rally road wheels, and a 302 cu in (4.9 L) V8 engine.
