Oh the drama!
I think a story about an obsessed dad taking his family cross country for a vacation with a dead body on the roof and flirting with say Christy Brinkley would have been a more interesting story.
As for the Family Truckster here.. you think you hate it now just wait till you drive it.
If you had done this with an 1982 when wagons were still loved and not 1992 when wagons fell out of favor it might have lasted a few years….oh wait they did have a wagon back then and killed it due to low sales.
Chevy and Buick tired but results were luke warm at best.
I have always loved wagons but the market has moved just as they are from coupes.
With the advent of these new EV platforms that can be configured for a number of low volume applications we just might see a wagon again. Will see.
I spent a lot of time driving these and working on these. They were fine 40 years ago but today other than for nostalgia I just don’t have the passion.
I have gotten soiled with a high roof SUV that has more passenger and cargo room.
My wife’s Acadia Denali not only had more room but will run 14 second quarter miles and has a sport mode that lets me take to back roads like I am in a sport sedan.
I really love the old Kingswood estates and many large wagons but I would not want to live with one daily.
I guess I am just not nostalgic for 1992 yet.
What is sad Cadillac offered a fantastic wagon just as did Dodge but both were questions no one asked today,
Thank you for this piece of neo-Prohibition noir. With black MGM wagon that shoulda been. Delish. The Panther platform was so versatile and so robust — just think of all the models it underpinned. Why not a late FCV/MGM/LTC wagon? As a dedicated wagon driver (family of origin: 1969 Corolla wagon, 1973 Corolla wagon, 1976 Malibu wagon, 1980 Malibu wagon, 1978 Colony Park wagon; my own: 1974 Volvo 145, 1980 Volvo 245, 1969 Chrysler T&C, 2003 Impreza 5-door x 2, 2002 Saab 9-5 wagon, 2008 Pontiac Vibe, 2008 Subaru Outback), I salute your excellent bad taste in cars.
It looks like the love child of a Grand Marquis and a Caprice Classic Wagon. Baby got back!
Where is the de Sade package?
There was a car in this story? I kid. Honestly you have a vivid imagination the story was hilarious!
