Living in nearby Chester, Tommy Nolen had spent 30 years digging all of the great performance cars Chevrolet was known for. But the one Bow Tie Nolen always yearned for was a '61 Impala SS. His multi-decade search ended one day in '96 when he got a tip that such a car was still owned by its original owner and just 15 miles away. Nolen immediately drove to the location (the Hicks' residence) and knocked on their front door. After introducing himself to Victor Hicks, he asked, "Do you have a 1961 Impala Super Sport?" Hicks replied, "Yes, we do but it's not for sale."
