1958 Chevrolet Impala restyled by Bill Cushenberry of Cushenberry Custom Shop for Frank Gould. The car is also known as the Limelighter, and was restyled to emphasize and dramatize the Impala's sleek profile. Frank's Chevy was judged Best Custom at the 1964 Winternationals.[1]

The Limelighter was restored by Oz Welch of Oz Kustoms for its current owner Bud Millard. During the restoration, the top on the car was chopped.[2] In March of 2019 the car was owned by Dennis Krakenberg.
