$29.99More InfoBook - America's Coolest Station Wagonsx
For all of us who grew up watching the world pass by from the back of a station wagon, this book touches a special chord. The same cars many would never want to be seen in are now in high demand, and it seems everyone has at least one great story involving a station wagon. Anyone who is a fan of nostalgia can relate to the subject matter, and for those who like vintage styling and modern performance, there are plenty of great examples of upgraded vintage wagons that can (and are) driven daily.
Noted magazine writing veteran Scotty Gosson takes an informative and lighthearted look at the lowly station wagon. Long lauded as a family mover unworthy of respect, the vintage style and quirky functionality of old wagons is now finding favor with enthusiasts and baby boomers alike. Their unique shapes and smile-inducing purpose separates wagons from more typical vintage rides, and in modified or customized form, wagons take on an entirely different personality.
Whether you're trying to make a statement or just wanted more space for family, friends, and luggage, this book is sure to make you smile and fondly reminisce time spent in the family wagon.
