Hello, I'm Ken Napper (the better looking of the Napper Brothers). This is my 1967 Imperial's story. One night in March 2003, I got a call from my brother Bob (the other half of the Napper Brothers car collection) about a black 67 Imperial (he's color blind) and since I liked that year, I had to look. I did and to make a long story short (there was a dare involved) I bought my first Imperial. I never saw the car, I just went an my brothers advice (I did not own a computer) and had my Imperial sent from Georgia. DAS was the shipper, so $600 later it was in Bristol PA. My father and I went to get my new (used) Baby; she was sitting near the building, back end out and dirty, I never saw a prettier sight in my life, a fabled Imperial. I took setting the points (the old match pack feeler gage trick), she roared to life, then she sat still. I could not believe I bought A 1 titled, rust free, good running car for a song (I love the people of Georgia). I got gas and took it twenty miles home. I love this car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
