Street Rodder - - Street Rod Of The Year! -

Atthe Sacra­mento Au­torama, Scott Bonowski (who’d won the Amer­ica’s Most Beau­ti­ful Road­ster award a month be­fore) in­sisted that we take a close look at Jesse Lindberg’s Im­pala. Jesse found the car in pieces, scat­tered all over, and built it at his au­to­mo­tive re­pair shop. He com­petes in Sound Qual­ity con­tests, but the high-end au­dio sys­tem is only one of many im­pres­sive parts. Two-tone gold and green paint fin­ish a body mod­i­fied with sub­tle mods. Race­line 19and 20-inch wheels fill the fend­ers. A car­bu­reted Chevy Vortec 350 en­gine and 700-R4 trans move the Im­pala down the street, with airbags and CPP shocks iron­ing out the ride. In­side, tan leather up­hol­stery is paired with vin­tage cloth in­serts. The top-shelf stereo com­po­nents hid­den in the trunk are heard but not seen. We’ll have a full ar­ti­cle in a fu­ture is­sue. For now, check out https://bit.ly/2PbyCkV for a few more pho­tos.
