The same cars many would never want tobe seen in are now in high demand, and it seems everyone has at least one great story involving a stationwagon. Anyone who is a fan of nostalgia can relate tothe 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.
