No. 141: Not Seeing the USA

Chevrolet turned its back on the tri-fives of the mid-‘50s and concentrated on a new machine – the Impala, a car as massive as its namesake was sleek. After one year, Chevy changed the design and produced a longer, lower car. Its trademark feature: twin rear fins that arched like angry eyebrows. The model had its fans – detractors, too

This ’60 Impala, outfitted with rusty Cragars, ain’t seeing no more USA – nor, apparently, is its younger sibling, an ’87 Monte Carlo.
