I thought I’d start off with one (one of many…mind you!!) favorite car classes, the Station Wagons!! I am a big fan of the 1950’s, 1960’s wagons. From the Nomads to the to the Falcon wagons the styling is varied, options many and with a little muscle added, they are fine machines!
If you’ve read my bio, you may recall my first car (given to me as a graduation gift back in the late 1970’s) was a restored 1966 Chevy Impala convertible. Awesome car with the reliable 283 engine. So it’s not hard to guess that I’d love seeing the wagon version of my Chevy. Well is just so happened that there were two 1966 wagons at the show.
The first one had the 327 engine and the owner added nice rims to hold it up. I’d improve the stance a bit by getting wider rubber for the rear tires. I think the roof rack is excellent. (I guess I should mention the Pinto wagon next to it. It was nicely done too.)
1966 Chevy Impala Wagon
Another 1966 Chevy Wagon. Same 327 engine and very nice wheels
Great lines. No roof rack
Interior was spectacular with the original horn which is impressive.
Crazy or not I love the wagon versions of my Impala.
There were a few others that I thought notable.
Beautiful Pontiac with a 326 engine
Here a great little Nash Rambler Super.
This one will floor ya!!
Mercury Colony-Park Monterey.
Not Real Wood mind you, but still nicely done.
Love the wide white walls!!
Let’s talk painted dash!!! One of my favorite features of ’50’s and ’60’s cars! Who needs padding?
AW Dude….it’s a STICK!!!! Lots of Chrome!!!
Did you know that the Dodge Dart could be had in a wagon?
Yup!!! Although I’m pretty sure it didn’t have a V8 and dual exhaust originally.
But don’t think wagons are just show cars. Here’s a shot from the autocross competition.
There wagon in staging!!
The wagon rolls up in a few frame and in case you thought it might be six cylinder…turn up you volume!!!!
That’s a great sound.
Thanks for reading and if you have a wagon you are proud of, drop me a note.
