Another Chunka money: Interior time !

Posted 02-17-2011 at 10:45 AM by medisalle

Howdy, all. It's been a long, bleary cold winter and I haven't spent much time doing anything to the Impala other than running her through the annual state inspection which came due 01/31.

You gotta love these old cars... my friends and my mechanic always scratch their heads ... "Needed nothing" .. "just adjusted her carb again, and perhaps a new tailpipe is on the schedule - but otherwise, needed nothing" my mechanic said. LOL.

No 'modules' to replace. No injection-this and anti-smog thingies to go bad. Sometimes I love this old thing.

So with spring just around the corner and luckily having sold (finally) the '89 Caprice, I decided to *splurge* and order a new interior kit for the old girl.

With new paint and new tires, the interior started looking more and more ratty, so when I was cruising Ciadella's Interiors web-page the other day, I noticed they have a complete set of seat covers in factory colors (and vinyl! - not a normal option for the 4-doors!) for $595.00.

I decided to splurge and get them, since a nice new unripped interior might be just the thing this old girl needs to pretty her up even more. And besides, i'm getting tired of duct-taping the seat corners every month or so to keep the batting on the inside.

I'll take pics and let you know how it goes when they arrive. I'm actually really stoked about how it's gonna look when it's done !
