    That’s pretty.

    That’s hilarious.

    Hopefully they at least put a "Heated Seats" badge on the back so your neighbors know you paid for them.

    The ala cart heated steering wheel at $250 is a bargain. My favorite luxury.

    Fully loaded with tax be darn near $90k.

    My uncle runs a Merc dealer in CT and had a customer order a "Designo" custom E350 wagon with a sticker of $110,00. Full AMG body kit, AMG wheels, exhaust, suede headliner, all that non-sense. The buyer canceled the order as it was being shipped here. It sat on the lot for months before he leased to my pops for a stupid low "get this thing off my lot" lease rate.

    Gorgeous car but I don't get why the original buyer just didn't get an E63 wagon for the same price.

    There's a guy here with a cherry Vista Cruiser that's his DD. Can't remember what year he said, but I think it's a '70. I've asked him several times if he'll sell it, and his response every time is "you can't afford it".
    Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.

    VC's and the Buick version are my all time favorite longroofs. Something about the skywagons just does it for me. That 70 if it has the 455 is an awesome car! My uncle had one with the Rocket 350 when I was a kid and it was the bomb, turned me into a wagon fan for life.

    In the mid 80's my dad rocked the Caprice Classic wagon with the 5.7 V8. God damn wagons have come a long way.

    They've also gone backwards. I'd challenge someone to find one that a sheet of plywood fits in. Heck even the 66/67 Dodge Charger could fit a full sheet.

    That's what I learned to drive in, dad had a 79 Cutlass Cruiser with the 260 and this wild southwestern pattern woven fabric interior. It had the factory heavy duty suspension so it had a 1/2 ton interior capacity and better towing too but that 260 was a slug. It did get 24mpg which was nice when I took it on Dead tour

    Sometimes I forget about that one but yeah, that Pontiac 400 (?) had plenty of giddyup and it definitely held its own against the Buick. I still prefer the softer lines of the Vista Cruiser though.

    Those Custom Cruisers were so nice in their day. They floated down the highway effortlessly at nearly double the speed limit. That Olds 455 with the Turbo 400 was a killer combo.

    We had that GT in the late 70's. MY brother, sister and I thought we hit the lottery moving up from a Honda station wagon WITHOUT AC. No more sticking together 3 wide in the back row. The lucky one got to roll around the cargo area solo with two in the middle with at least 2 feet of separation at all times.

    We went the other direction in 68 with a brand New baby blue Datsun wagon. The black vinyl seats in that thing would get hot enough in summer to power a small town. Total surf wagon w 4 on the floor. Peppy fun. Miss that car

    Think we had that gutless engine as well. It was easy on fuel - for its era.

    Drilled holes in the spare tire storage area that we plugged when not in use for the baddest ass stealth party cooler Iíve ever known.

    My mom had a Plymouth Parisienne and a Cutlass Cruiser.

    Why, exactly, do some of you remember these old boats fondly, apart from memories purely tangential to the car (e.g. taking it on Dead tour)?

    My folks rolled around in a Volvo 145 with rally prepped engine and suspension from the spares left over from 1970 London to Mexico City rally car that Dad and an Uncle built up and were mechanics for.

    My old man wasn't big on the American boats, though I grew up post gas crisis. He traded a BMW Bavaria for a Honda Civic and a Mazda RX4 wagon (and I think still resents us a little for it). The wagon was just a car as a kid. I remember fighting over the backie-back more than anything, but right before he sold it, we took it out and he drove the shit out of it. It had been sitting for a while, so I was old enough to appreciate a car that handled decently well. Our was silver and boring, so I'm posting this representation instead.

    Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.
