I'm not crazy about the gadgets either. But I had to back my wife's Subaru out of the driveway and it was pitch black outside. And that backup camera really helped because I couldn't see jack squat out the window. No street lights here. And I have a long driveway. It gets country dark around here. I'm no fan of little SUV's. I think that they're boring. But .They sure do come in handy.

What a coinikydink? The Wagonaires were really cool. Studebaker was ahead of the times with many things. I like the older Studebaker wagons

Re: Pic Thread: Station Wagons

This one does it for me. I want a Studebaker soooo BAD!



I just have to figure:

#1 Where to park it.

#2 How to pay for it.

But that's never stopped me before.

yer right, cameras and safety stuff is good to a point.. I like the alert factor but still need mirrors to judge distance, don't trust that stuff to actually park with

but even the mirrors have some sort of auto dip that never tilts the same way twice no matter where the switch is

and what I really dislike are the hvac controls all in a touch screen instead of the three dials.. I don't like looking away from the road but have to to look at screen to touch controls..

and the tpms.... on the spare tire! drove me nuts when that sucker was low

other than that, I like it.. but more importantly Mrs. Bee and the kids really like it and so does the nanny so it's a keeper..

Not so much now, but I used to be like that times ten. I had vehicles stashed at friends' places all over the state. And that was with my place packed to capacity. My only rule has been not on the grass, must be on the driveway. So I kept adding driveway

I always thought it would be cool to have a Checker Wagon. My sister had a '68 sedan after HS. It had a Chevy 327 and it was on a C/10 chassis, I think. I know when I replaced a spindle on it I got one off a '68 C/10 in the junkyard. I always thought it would be cool to put a Checker Wagon on a K/10 chassis... bolt-on custom! A Suburban of another breed.

Isn't that style cool? When have you ever seen one? You'd be a stand out everwhere

We had a convertible that model. Straight 6 with O/D. We loved that car in the early 60s. Nash American I think it was called. Later Dad bought a larger bath tub called a Nash Statesman.

Re: Pic Thread: Station Wagons

They have to be the cutest cars ever. When I was a kid and they were on the road I hated them because I liked gassers with cut out rear wheel wells. I didn't like fender skirts, either. But Nash built great quality cars. That wagon is another "when have you seen one of those?" cars. You could say that about most station wagons these days... "When's the last time...?"

Re: Pic Thread: Station Wagons

Totally cool to me now! Imagine one done as a gasser. Their look makes them appear to be really heavy. So a rolling oxymoron as a gasser. I just thought of that one. What I first was thinking was more contemporary. How about one done all out for autocross? What a sight that would be running tight through the cones skirchin' and screamin'

'50 Plymouth Suburban. Ever seen a grille like that on a pickup? Maybe a Chevy? Maybe like a '54/'55 1st Design?

Re: Pic Thread: Station Wagons

You know what? There was a Nash or Rambler in hot rod mag last year built with autoxing in mind. It may also have been a wagon with fender bulges and modern power. Built for something different.

Re: Pic Thread: Station Wagons

Those Ramblers are so cool. Like I said about the Nashes, as a kid I didn't think so on these either. I think it's because they weren't "cool cars" to me. My attraction was to hot rods, drag cars, performance and sports cars, or customs. I built car models big time and never liked Johann kits because their kits were nerdy cars. Man was I brainwashed or what? Or was it I had a highly developed critical opinion at a young age? whatever...

What I'm realizing is these are the station wagons from when I was a kid. These are what my buddies' folks were running us around in and I saw everywhere. All that's about foggy now. I mostly remember riding in the Johnsen's '62 Biscayne Wagon. They were in the group of families mine was in that did a lot of things with. We went to the same church. Great memories!

It was this color, totally Plain Jane. Blackwalls, dog dishes, and always dusty as I recall. The second picture is like it, only red

Re: Pic Thread: Station Wagons

I remember being hauled around as a kid in my friends mom's Vista Cruiser. I thought the roof was cool. And his mom was a really hot blonde. I remember that she also had a Jaguar XKE. And boy did she look good in that. It sent my adolescent mind whirling. I had such a crush on her.

Re: Pic Thread: Station Wagons

Ohhhh yeeah. And that's a nice one (the car). I remember coming to the realization (when I was 21) that my girlfriend's money was actually pretty hot, in spite of her old age and being out of (my) style. She was 50!

Another girlfriend in HS's mom drove a full-size Vista Cruiser. I never rode in that because we were both driving our own cars by then. But we did take her father's Volvo on a weekend trip when her folks were out of town (call me Farris)

It was white like this one:

Her last name was Brady and her family was a mix of her dad's kids (like her) and her step-mom's kids. This was while The Brady Bunch was on the air.

Her mom's wagon wasn't like this one, but I know you will like it, Paul

Oh yeah. I'd roll that all day long. But then again I drive around in a hearse.

I had a girlfriend when I was a teenager and her mom had just turned 44. I remember thinking "Wow she's old"
