Ladies and Gentlemen, it is my pleasure to announce today that after many failed attempts to trade for, or purchase at auction, a 1969 Impala Gold Series WL, today the Carnut Johnny Lightning Museum and Bar & Grill '69 Impala Wing has officially received possession of such an elusive prized jewel, the very last "missing link" in the entire Johnny Lightning 1969 Impala lineup.

Well, the regular JL '69 Impala line-up, that is, as Dad's Coronet so thoughtfully pointed out in another thread (That guy could suck the fun out of a stag party: "Hey, watch out with those tassles, lady, you could poke someone's eye out with that thing!!!").

Anyway, courtesy of a speedy response to a trade on the S&S board with Husker Paul, the much coveted Gold Series car (which seldom comes up on E Pay, and always fetches an alarming fee when it does!) is now ours, at the cost of a BWF Willys WL. Thanks for the deal and quick shipping, Paul! ;) :thumbsup: )

The Wing now has the regular and WL versions of the:
HP Chevy Top Down
HP Chevy Top Up
Chevy Thunder
Impala Parade
Holiday Classics
Gold Series

We'll post a group pic of all twelve as soon as possible.

Now the Impala Wing has to have a major fundraiser to go after the elusive Test Shot Impala that is rumored to exist.

Oh, the Committee regrets that it forgot to mention the custom BWF '69 Impala it received, courtesy of Big John's Chevy, earlier in 2006! We hope to commission a custom PIP '69 Impala from the StupidSquirrel destoration company in the future, once they have relocated their facility. :thumbsup:

True, I have in fact even held one. If I ever turn to a life of crime, I know who's house I'm hitting first! ;) :lol:

:) Congrats! I have all of the regular 69's and the only white lightning I do have is the one from the Impala Parade release. Now, I have a 1:1 Impala Convertible, and a 1:1 Sport Coupe so, that means in the 1:1 collection, I am missing a Custom Coupe.......

Once I settle, I'd be pleased as punch to PIP each and every flavor if you like, provided you can supply the CHP/ top down, Holiday Classics, and Gold Series cars (I don't have dupes of the CHP or Gold Series and I've never even SEEN the Holiday Classic)
I'm praying HARD that we'll be settled by late April at the latest.
BTW, congrats on scoring the Gold Series WL.

Which WL do you have for me, Impala Parade right?

You mean the blue one? It is not a true SS427, just looks the part. I have always like the way those look so I made my standard Sport Coupe look like one. As for the convertible, my father and I pirated the hidden headlight system from a 69 Caprice about 26 years ago and added it on. I really would love to have the hidden headlight system on the coupe too but, no such luck! Here is a picture of the front of my 69 coupe.
