My Favorite Car: 1961 Chevy Impala, Joe Selesy, 83, Pinellas Park

'61 Chevy Impala

I bought the car brand new in Detroit. I was 34 years old when I purchased the car and paid $2,704 for the vehicle. I drove the car from Detroit to Florida on July 4, 1961, as I was transferred to this area to start a new job. The car and I have been here ever since. I have the original purchase invoice framed at home. This car is a beauty! It currently has 89,000 original miles and is driven several times a week for pleasure (weather-permitting). The car is in mint condition and has all original parts (as does the owner at 83)! My 1961 Impala is considered part of my family; it's "My Baby."
