The level of detail on this ride is simply mind-boggling.
Some people are satisfied with adding a few customized details to their ride. Others go further with a custom paint job and wheels. Then you have Chris Roark, a California man who has poured his heart and soul into a 1958 Chevrolet Impala lowrider he calls The Final Score. The level of detail Roark has put into this convertible is simply outstanding, making it a car anyone will stop and notice in a heartbeat.
It’s no wondering, considering this Chevrolet has 600 custom parts on it. Even the pedals are custom, showing how detail-oriented Roark is. A wild, sparkling paint job is perhaps the most eye-catching thing on the car, until you pop the hood. The engine isn’t just dressed up with some chromed bits. The engine compartment is painted like the rest of the body, complete with pinstriping, stripes, metallic inlays, and a portrait painted on the underside of the hood. There’s also a custom mural on the rear spare tire cover. Ostrich skin seats, custom logos engraved in the badges, a custom steering wheel with a unique Impala logo engraved in it, golf-leaf switchgear, and artistic floormats are just some of the amazing work done on this ride.
Before, Roark had a car called The Perfect Score, which was a hardtop Impala. It was a three-time Lowrider Magazine Show winner in Las Vegas. After winning its third title, Roark was driving the Chevrolet home on the highway when another car sideswiped him sending his prized ride into the embankment on the side of the road. Sadly, the custom vehicle was totaled, which is the sum of all fears for anyone who has a babied, customized car.
Rather than give up after losing a vehicle he had worked so hard to build, Roark’s friends encouraged him to build something new as a tribute to The Perfect Score. That’s how The Final Score came about.
