Yes....... I owned a black 1963 Chevrolet Impala with a white convertible top.....

It had all black interior......

I even waxed the seats with pledge so they would shine under the lights at night....

I would even wash the morning dew off that car....

It was a great car back in my single days......

If it was affordable, I would hunt one out and buy it but it would have to be totally restored.......

I don't want any low riders either as they spoil the original look....

I watch Barrett Jackson auctions on TV sometimes looking for one to come to their auction but have not seen one so far..........

Yes...

My father subscribed to the Henry Ford principle...
"You can have it in any color you want as long as it's black." All my father's cars were black and to top it off they were all Chevrolets not Fords. When I inherited his last car it was the only black car I ever owned.

Yes. I had a black Ford Ranger. It looked great after being waxed, but was hard to keep clean.

Dracer, one time a guy interestingly said to me, "nothing looks better than black when it's clean, but nothing worse when it's dirty." Not sure if he was right, but it was a thinker.

Yes, and almost ordered a black (tuxedo black) car this time.

But, black only looks good wet, or at night.

Yes. And I waxed it every two momths. After two years old people use to think it was brand new. However that's when was younger. And when I mean wax I mean rub it on and hand polish it. Todays waxes are much better.
