Chico >> Charlie and Loretta Carroll of Chico are known around town for their dedication to good work through local service organizations, but later this month their fame will be expanded to include one of their “babies” — a 51-year-old Chevrolet Impala convertible.

The classic car will make an appearance on the History Channel show “Car Hunters,” which will air at 7:30 p.m. May 24.

The Carrolls are big fans of classic cars and have had a number of them over the years. But the robin-egg blue car caught the attention of someone else, who called the show. According to the Carrolls, the attention is justified.

“This 51-year-old Chevrolet Impala convertible was the top-of-the-line sport model for 1965, consequently makes it a rare and collectible vehicle. It also can be attributed to low factory production figures of this particular model,” Loretta Carroll said.

The Carrolls weren’t intending to sell the car, but when the New York production company contacted them, they agreed to have it filmed. Leftfield Entertainment contacted the Chico couple “as they were looking to feature a full size mid-’60s convertible.” A local hotrod and restoration shop shared information about the Carrolls’ car, the couple said.

The film crew arrived in Chico, coming from Dallas and then Yuba City for other filming projects.

“They were very professional,” noted Loretta Carroll as their cul de sac turned into a stage.

Several of the Carrolls’ friends, including their daughter, spotted the convertible around town as the crew filmed. Only it wasn’t one of the Carrolls driving. The production company insisted one of their drivers was behind the wheel.

The couple is anxious to see the final program with their car, which hasn’t been for sale but might, if the price is right. From the late ’60s until recent years they had acquired 26 cars in the collection of vintage and collectible vehicles. In recent years they downsized a bit.

“The most recent sale in April was our oldest car of the collection, a 75-year-old, all original, 1941 Chevrolet Special deluxe club coupe,” Loretta Carroll said.

The couple also drove earlier this month in the Pioneer Day Parade, playing hosts to parade marshal Marilyn Warrens.

The show, christened “Drop Top and Roll,” takes viewers through Chicoan Mark Piland’s search for a classic car. Like shows about house hunters, “Car Hunters” are hunting for the four-wheel slice of paradise. The show takes Piland through test drives in a ’66 Pontiac LeMans, a ’71 Mercury Cougar and then the Carroll’s ’65 Chevy Impala.

According to the History Channel’s website, the show Car Hunters “follows individuals as they search to buy their dream car.”
