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.
