Yes, they are driving different cars because the Leviathans are looking for them. They are trying to stay way off the grid, the FBI thinks they are dead again and are no longer looking for them. But the leviathans are very good at tracking them so they had to ditch the Impala for now, It sticks out like a sore thumb.
The 67' Impala is still on the show, but depending on the episode you're watching, sometimes it doesn't feature, and sometimes it's getting fixed from a mighty crash. Which is why I believe it should come up in the credits, so fans can be ready not to see it. :D
It has always been a 67' Impala, but what I know of they actually use five cars on set (all 67 Impala's:)). The actual car was bought from the Kelley family of Farmingdale, NJ in 2005, and it was originally baby blue with baby blue interior and dual bench seats;D
The impala was their trademark thing and when the leviathans were looking for them they had to put the car in to storage and use a different one so they could sneak around un-noticed and get the information they needed.. The leviathans know they drive an impala and it was too risky, not to mention the various laws they've broken, they still have law enforcement on their asses lol
Dean steals a 1972 Challenger (w/ rally hood) in "The Mentalist". I assume he spends his mourning time working it up and painting it red after the unfortunate incident with Dick in "Adventures in Babysitting." I miss the Impala, too. That was my first car (in 1997). Can't risk ridin' dirty in Daddy's ride after "Slash Fiction."
The boys have been in hiding from the Leviathons, which includes leaving their personal auto behind (it had been at Bobby's), and using various vehicles, changing each time they may have been detected.
they hid the impala becuase they are still hiding from the fbi. after what the levithans(fake as them and did a mass murder). they met a guy called frank and he told them to constently change their identity to keep their trails clean. question answered!
well...as many people have already answered, there are many different times when they drive a different car for many different reasons...but one time that nobody's mentioned yet is when Balthazar saves the titanic from sinking and they drive a mustang instead and the impala was never invented. maybe that was the episode you were thinking of? i believe it is season 6
I would like to know why they changed the Impala from a 2 door to a 4 door as i dont not remembering them changing it in the show. i want to but a replica toy one but i dont know which model to buy now ! any advice would be great thanx
They have two and four door Impala's throughout the show as I noticed too so i watched every season again and noticed Sam squeezing in the back pushing dean forward and in the next ep he gets in through the back door it's just random lol
The leviatians impersonated Sam and Dean and using the same 67' Chevy Impala as them, the police then knew what car they was driving and to stop them from getting arrested the real Sam and Dean used a different car until everyone had gotten over it or forgot about it. Something like that anyway.
