My wife has forced me to do something that i swore i would never do in my life. My wifes conversion van was stolen last friday and when they found it (sunday), it was completely stripped and burned. Well ive sunk to an all time low........i bought a.......FULL SIZE STATION WAGON ....( this might seem weird to some of you but i always said i wouldnt be old until i owned one...) On a side note it is fully loaded and i got it for a steal..

Hey Lenny, does your wagon have the fake wood? I'll admit it - I think "woody" wagons are so uncool, they're cool. Like the great big Fords from the mid-70's, or the Olds Vista Cruisers, or the last-gen Buick Roadmaster that you could order with an LT-1...

I'm sorry. I think a full-size wagon is far, far cooler than a minivan. Plus you can tow race cars and basket-case Fieros with them, too.

What's wrong with full size station wagons? I happen to own one of the ultimate full size station wagons, a Suburban! I've owned it since it was brand new in December of 1993 and a was 25 years old. I say embrace it for what it is. There probably isn't a more useful vehicle on the planet. Give me a station wagon over a van any day!

Ain't she a beaut...

I love my old Suburban, but I beg to differ with you. They're trucks thinly disguised as station wagons. Now a real station wagon is like was already mentioned. A 70's vintage Olds Vista Cruiser...wow! My Dad had one of those babies. Cool aerodynamic tinted glass moonroof with a 455 engine that would cruise 75 MPH all day long on the highway headed for the mountains, fully loaded down with a family of 6 and all their camping gear.

Yeah, I guess I see what you're getting at, batboy. Still, I guess I'll just have to settle for my super-sized station wagon of a Suburban with a 454 that'll cruise across Montana at 98mph all day... Oh wait, they set a speed limit at 75mph. Dang it, there goes that one, too.

Hey, at least it doesn't scrape the rear bumper across every bump in the road when I go camping like my dad's Oldsmobile did!

I wouldn't mind owning a station wagon, I'm 23 year old.... The only catch is that it has to be a mid 60's Nomad with 383small block and TH-700 Tranny

We are looking at buying a new car(so we can park Fiero to keep our low miles on it).

For some reason I refuse to get a 4 door although I think it would be easier when you have passengers. I just can't bring myself to get one. Maybe it is because my first car was a Army Green 1978 Plymouth Volare Station Wagon and that was in 1992.

Not too excited on the new Station wagons, guess that is why I currently have a 1957 Nomad and a 1955 Safari. 2 door wagons, the only way to go. Guess I would sell the Safari

dogtired, post some pics of your 55 and 57 ! I'd like to see them. I kinda like wagons. I currently own a 96 "Burban" 4X4. One time I had a 70 Plymouth with a 440ci. and I had a 76 Pontiac Safari with a 455ci. Big time cruisers...really big...lol. Thats my ol Chevy Beaville/Yamahauler behind the Suburban

Now dont get me wrong if it was a nomad or a suburban I'd be jumping for joy Its a 86 Caprice Classic (no wood). Drove it last night and i have to admit it runs great rides smoother then a new caddy.

Good point about the towing. Now i have a way to tow home some poor old abandoned fiero's (just gotta find some now)

What's wrong with wagons? My first ride was a 1976 Impala. Metallic brown, beige interior. 400 small block. Like ChadMan said, it is way cooler than a minivan!

haven't you been reading carcraft and hotrod? people are digging wagons up and making realy nice rides.

limo tint the windows, update the stereo, find some impala ss or corvette wheels, maybe lower it a little (ok that might be goin' over board, but i think they do firm up the suspension) and be rollin' hard on the blvd. boyeee.

the latest hot rod has a mid 70's olds vista cruiser that looks pretty good.
