WASHINGTON -- After reviewing federal government budgets and property inventories, Channel 2's Scott MacFarlane discovered the government is paying to store and maintain a silver 1973 Chevrolet Impala, manufactured at the old Doraville Assembly plant in Dekalb County, Ga. The car sat Wednesday at an automotive safety exhibit operated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in Maryland. At the same display, sat a second eye-catching '73 Chevy Impala with deep Georgia roots.

IDK how much the NHTSA is paying to maintain that car because the interior looks like it has been neglected for years and I wonder who appraised them to be worth 500K :confused: I do hope the silver one looks better ::)

Price does seem high, but I'm sure the first generation airbags has a lot to do with that
