Julie had one of those days when the sudden urge to buy a car was just too hard to resist

When I got married, my husband Bill had one of these, it was blue with a black vinyl roof, but after we got married we decided to sell that to buy a 1965 Plymouth Satellite that he still has to this day.

A couple years ago while visiting the Chryslers on the Murray event I saw this VIP for sale, and I just had to buy it even though I wasn’t actually actively looking for one to buy.

The car was already in great shape, so we didn’t have to do much to get it in the condition that it’s in now, just a refresh of the engine and paint and it was back to the excellent condition you see it in now.

Bill helped me a lot with this build and it’s great to be able to come to events like this with him in his Plymouth and me in my Valiant. Zane caught up with Nippy and Julie at Rolling 30

Valuation: Think $25,000-plus for a good example.
