Lil John's 1970 Chevrolet
1970 Chevrolet Impala owned by Majestics car club founder and President John "Lil John" Giovanni Bertoldi of La Mirada, California. Named the "Itallian Stallion," after Sylvester Stallone, the car featured a wild and crazy multicolor flake design with murals of a sweet woman and her body designed with a horse body bottom. It had a full on custom interior with bull winkle seats and a hood and trunk to match. Hydraluic lifts and plenty of chrome were also in place. It was painted by Ed Mancini. Lil John and Ed painted a motorcycle for Sylvester Stallone that he used in the Rocky movie. The idea for the build came after Ed and Lil John met Sylvester at his home.
