HISTORY OF THE LOVESS

  • I bought my 1996 ImpalaSS in Oct.24, 2001. It had 19,709 miles and I paid dearly for it but I had to have it! My first plan was that I was going to preserve it and keep it bone stock but that didn't last long as you will find out.

Rick "LOVESS" Graves

Soon after I joined the local car club. GRAIL, Gateway Regional Area Impala SS Lovers. I have met a great group of people that share a passion for the 94-96 ImpalaSSs and the family of vehicles it includes.At that time they were putting on a National show,I2K2 that was a big success and set the standards for the following Nationals events put on by ISSCA, the national ImpalaSS club.I took my first trophy at this event in the Stock show class, under 50,000 miles. But what also happened changed the direction for my car. Among other events was the Drag Racing. I thought it was so awesome watching these big cars race! Well at the end of competition they had what they called "Fun Runs" for a dollar a run! Ran 4 times. That was it, the bug bit me hard!

I had these made for shows and events....

Some find "LOVESS" odd or different but it wasn't my first choice. When I first started joining the various impala forums I had to pick a user name and everything I wanted was taken. It came down to well I love my SS so it was LOVESS.........That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
