Let'* give 'em the domain name where that photo came from because that site is a real treasure: http://www.stationwagon.com
All station wagons, all the time.
As for me, I learned to drive in a 1969 Pontiac Custom * wagon, 350 2bbl. V8, 2-speed auto, Mayfair Maize color (that really light yellow shade). That was a really gorgeous wagon, with the nice Coke-bottle shape rear panels.
Saw a red 1967 Ch*vy Impala wagon for sale near here the other day... it was tempting...
As for the Magnum, the next-door neighbor came home with one last week that he was test-driving. Looks interesting on the outside, but jeez, there'* a lot of plastic on the inside. The outside was black, with mags, but the inside had lot of beige-colored plastic around the lower half of the interior, and I could see that stuff getting dirty _real_ fast in the future.
In fact it looks like the factory knew it would get dirty, too, because the demo/test-drive model he had still had clear plastic protective stick-on sheets over the interior panels, not everywhere, but where people would be coming into contact with them every day, like along the lower kick panel of the door. I'd rather have leather, or at least carpet, in places that are going to get the most wear like that.
He didn't buy the Magnum, but I think someone else snagged it a few days later.
