The mountains and winding roads around Snoqualmie, Washington, are enveloped in dense fog. This is the Pacific Northwest, after all. Lichen hangs from tree branches, and moss covers the ground like a dense carpet. Over one-third of Sasquatch sightings in North America occur in this region.

I've liked Wagons ever since our family's 1st new car, a '57 Plymouth Sport Suburban, and have owned several since. My favorite was a stripper, ex-USAF '63 Savoy I restified as a Max Wedge tribute/clone/what-the-hell-is-that. Those that "got it" shared in its mischievous humor
Was so excited when the Buick tour X came out. Had the local dealer call me when they hit the lot. Check book in hand. And then I saw the sticker price! a mid level at $44k and a top near $50k. No deals!..... didn't get one. I wonder how many others were scared off by the lofty sticker price. And now they are gone. I wonder why?
Went and took my drivers test in a 1954 Plymouth 2 dr wagon stick shift. Back in 1960 in MA if you got your license with an automatic an A was put after your license # and youe only permitted to drive cars with automatic transmissions. Would love to find a 54 PLY> today to restomod.
Wagons. Love 'em. I've had six over the last 50 years or so and have enjoyed every one.
Three American and three German. My current favorite is still in the garage; an
'05 MBZ E 500. Best road tourer ever. One I'd like to own again is the '67 Ford Country
Squire with the 390. What a fun car. This West coast get together in Washington looks
like fun. Hmmmmm!

Where is the photo shoot that should have came with this article? Grew up with 5 brothers and sisters. We had 9 passenger wagons. Early 50's Studebaker, 57 Ford Ranch wagon, and a 63 Pontiac Vista Cruiser. The later with a 330 hipo v8. Pegged that speedo as a 16 year old, more than once!
We are on our second Audi—the first an Avant am now a lowered allroad, which I love every day (5 years in). Our urban hauler is fast (APR ECU flashed), agile on 19 inch wheels with Quattro, and easily goes from Tail of the Dragon to bringing home 23 bags of mulch inside, or hauling our kayaks on the roof and now on a trailer. #AvantLove #LongRoofForever
