Lil John's 1965 Chevrolet
1965 Chevrolet Impala SS owned by Majestics car club founder and President John "Lil John" Giovanni Bertoldi of La Mirada, California. Called "The Candy Girl," this was the first Majestic show car to hit the circuit.
Lil John's Impala won many first place awards in the stock custom category, and started building the image of the Majestics within the Lowrider community in a time that shows were dominated by hot rods, vans, races and other type vehicles. "Lowriders were not as well accepted yet. "The Candy Girl" was one of the first Lowriders to break out into all the Caucasian read magazines such as Street Machine, Chevy Power and others in 1978."
Lil John sold the car for 2,500 dollars so he could make a down payment on a home. He sold it to a fellow from Northern California. After winning a show up north it was unfortunately damaged and never shown again.
