What is dead may never die. Supernatural star Jensen Ackles lost a comrade in arms during the first season, his beloved Impala. The actor who proclaimed, “Don’t touch my Impala,” thought it was long gone after getting demolished beyond repair, but he recently reunited with his old flame on the show’s set.

“While filming yesterday I noticed an old hollowed out car sitting off in the background,” he wrote on Facebook. “I wandered over and there she was. 10 years later. The ORIGINAL Impala from season 1.”

Ackles’ Dean Winchester lost the Impala during that fateful season 1 finale, “Devil’s Trap.” The brothers and their father (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) are driving away in the Impala after a battle with the Yellow-Eyed Demon, Azazel. All of a sudden this happens.

“It’s been over a decade since I’ve seen this car, and yet she’s still here…hiding in the shadows,” Ackles wrote. “I guess you’re never really dead on this show.”

Check out the photos of the reunion below.
