Station wagons are for Clark Griswold.
We call them shooting brakes now (again).

In the 80s everybody had to switch to minivans to escape the stigma of station wagons.
Then in the 00's everybody had to switch to SUV's to escape the stigma of minivans.
Now to escape the stigma of SUV's, they all have to switch to crossovers, which are basically just station wagons.

I'm going to be my regular voice of dissent with this one. Here's why these glamUV's are a bad choice...

An SUV is supposed to take you places a regular vehicle cannot. It does that with a reliable motor, ground clearance, off-road suspension, all terrain tires and 4WD... preferably with one of 3 types of differential locks. (rear, center, front or a combination of any).

I don't mean to be elitist about it, but increasing the size of a station wagon, rounding the angles and calling it an SUV doesn't make it an SUV.


This is as bad as Jeep (oh wait it's still the same crappy Fiat group, isn't it?) putting the awesome HEMI in the Grand Cherokee without giving it a badass off-road suspension setup. No... they gear it towards on-road asshole behavior driving.

This rant has gotten all out of shape and direction so I'm just gonna end it here.

Anyone who spends $150,000 on a station wagon should probably drive it off a cliff so somebody who's not an idiot can inherit their (presumably vast) fortune

The reason theyre so popular is because old folks have bad knees... when you have bad knees its hard to get in & out of anything that isnt SUV-height... but they also have bad backs, and when you have a bad back its uncomfortable to ride in anything with a rough ride like an SUV or pickup.

And since old folks are the only ones with enough money to a buy new car.. thats what manufacturers have to make.

Given that stations wagons of all kinds (and especially performance wagons) have all but disappeared, I'll take it.

Dad had one of these when I was a kid:

His was black though, and didn't have the chrome accent trim on the fenders and quarters.  Under the black paint there was green, so I suspect at one point it looked like this:

It was a ver comfortable car to ride in even as deteriorated as the interior was.  Problem was the cloth-covered wiring as the cloth insulation was decaying after 40+ years.  The car would discharge the battery as it sat.

He eventually sold it when he accepted that he wasn't going to do anything with it.

Now that I look at it I think the first one is a postwar vehicle with longer front fenders.  His was a '40 Buick Super 8.  What distinguished it most from the Special was that it didn't have runningboards that one could stand on.

Just checked. Chrysler owned Lamborghini 1987-1994. LM-002 production was from 1986-1993.
