Is it not a beauty our 1960 Chevrolet Impala? What a design! Look at that backside, the elegant rear lights, the gadgets, the red arrow pointing forward from the wings.

6-cylinder engine, steering, transmission - everything is original, except for the air conditioning and the perky Cuban flag above the license plate.

Once, this classy car belonged to an authentic and generous person called Edel. He proposed the sale himself, but it was difficult for him. He is the only previous car owner who never wanted to see the car after restoration. He probably preferred to keep the sweet memories of the past, when this Impala drove him and his family in full glory. Edel is no longer among us, but his Impala honors him.

The guidebook of this Chevrolet showed that it was originally painted Prussian blue. So we painted the car this color and called him Daniel, after Julio’s uncle, a great source of inspiration.

Daniel is no doubt a co-star in videoclip ‘Amanece’ by Yomil & Dany (see below). The new and the eternal performing together…
