My Mom inherited a 1973 Chevy Impala Sport Coupe that had a 350 in it. That
thing was like driving a giant marshmallow. You would hit a bump and the
suspension would finally settle a couple miles down the road. No feel for the
driver, I recall using the term “wallow” when describing it to my Dad.
That being said, it was a fun car to drive compared to a Beetle. I remember
the nice brocade cloth upholstery and the front bench seat.
