The idea of Bob living in his car is funny because it was true. The “Impala Inn” line came from my wife, who once kicked a drunken real Bob out on New Year’s when it was like 30 below. We had both chugged a jug of blackberry wine to see what would happen of if it would take effect on us… my wife was not pleased. Come to think of it, she didn’t kick him out persay, but Bob didn’t like the bitching so he left… driving pretty much DRUNK to a parking lot where he slept through the night.To this day Bob swears it was the alcohol that kept him warm and alive.
That car was pretty legendary too. Years later the dummy crashed it because he had completely BALD tires that we kept telling him to change but he was just too cheap. So the Impala Inn went the way of the junkyard.
