16: 1963 Chevrolet Impala – Ice Cube
Ice Cube had a rough life growing up, and when he hit the big time, one of his favorite cars was the 1963 Chevrolet Impala. Early West Coast hip hop culture was heavily entwined with the lowrider culture of the 1970s and ’80s. Likewise, the rappers who grew up in this culture were influenced by it as well such as Ice Cube and Dr. Dre. It was only natural that one of ‘Cube’s’ dream cars was a 1963 Chevy Impala.
The ’63 models, in particular, are highly coveted in the lowrider community, and even finding a junked one can be hard. The prices are high and if you can find a stock model you are in for something special. The Impala was a sedan that combined luxury with substance and the driving experience was top-notch at the time.
