CC Outtake: They Really Should Have Called it The Galaxie 500

CC 192 094 800

How much more familiar the match-up of Impala to Galaxie 500 would have been. And the outcome? The 500 had a number of obvious advantages over the Impala, especially if you value interior space. The idea of a CUV (Freestyle) and sedan sharing the same basic body architecture was unorthodox but rather brilliant. The result was one of the roomiest sedans in a long time, especially considering its modest overall length. Tall windows, high and roomy seating, Audi-esqe if a bit bland styling. All of which was ruined in the loathsome current Taurus.
