For that matter, a Buick Park Avenue or LeSabre made within the last 10 years will give the comfort desired with decent fuel economy. Oh, and there was that song about 10 years ago by the band CAKE, that talked about sliding his honey close to him in his Malibu...

nothing beats his 1975 mavericks seats tho...almost too squishy i might say (imagine the ride of a car with no shocks) you just keep bouncing on the seat, car will stop bouncing in normal time tho

Probably one of those innerspring vinyl seats? Those are kinda soft, but mainly they're just bouncy.

Yeah, there's a difference between squishy soft seats, and bouncy ones. When you sit in my Buick, you sink down about 4 - 6 inches, but you do not bounce.

yo civic94. I know exactly what you are saying. I have had 2 civics(93 and 94), a metro(89), and a pulsar(83). Presently I am almost 30, have 2 kids and have moved up to an odyssey(01) and i've been driving a Canyon(05) as my daily driver. I am about to sell my civic. I find myself drawn to the larger vehicles now.

I still try to hypermile in both my big cars, but the days of 50mpg+ are gone until the kids are on their own.
