It was funny, the first draft of the script it was a 65’ Mustang. My next door neighbor pimps out rides for a living, that’s what the guy does. And he tricks out classic automobiles. He happened to be outside and I was outside, and I said “Hey man” I said “Let me ask you a question. I’m writing this script, and they guys are - y’know - supposed to be in this muscle car crusin’ around the country. And I’m thinking like a 65’ Mustang. What do you think?” And he said “Oh yeah a 65’ Mustang’s perfect… if you’re a pussy.” And I said “Oh, well I can’t use that, then what car should I use?” And without hesitation, he said “67’ Chevy Impala. Cause’ you can fit a body in that trunk.
—Eric Kripke. SPN Featurette Just a friendly reminder that we have our lovely Metallicar model as a 67’ Impala because of Kripke’s next door neighbor. And also, possibly, why the boys drive a 65’ Mustang in “My Heart Will Go On”. (via i-am-mishafuckingcollins)
