Now if I were to be true to myself, I’d be driving a station wagon like this Buick Special Estate Wagon, Model 49 mentioned in Hemmigs. As posted previously, my first car was almost a 1958 Buick Special, but after my stint with wagons in the 1980s (Volvo DL245, Chevrolet Caprice Wagon and Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser), I have a soft spot for one that puts them all into one classy (classic) vehicle.

Just FYI, that "soft spot" isn’t really soft enough for me to give up my BMW X5 35d diesel SUVand "yes I know" the Griswold Family Truckster was a 1979 Ford LTD Country Squire based station wagon (below).
