Who would have ever thought that the ‘retro car’ would become a trend in automobiles? The VW Bug, Chrysler PT Cruiser, Ford Thunderbird, Plymouth Prowler and Mini Cooper have made come backs.
SUVs were considered a cool alternative to mini-vans and station wagons, now there kind of a typical family vehicle and everybody knows someone that has one.
I am curious if there will be a renaissance of the large station wagon.
Chrysler already has a concept station wagon called the Pacifica and Citadel.
I’d love to see Ford make a wagon out of the Crown Victoria/Grand Marquis.
The ultimate would be a wagon version of the current Mercury Grand Marquis with wood grain side panels, 7.3 liter power stroke turbo diesel engine, 4X4 drive and a power glass moon roof.
The roomiest, most powerful station wagon ever had to be the 1994-1996 Buick Roadmaster estate wagons. They had a 350cu” V8 that put out 260HP and got 25MPG! They also had a ‘vista roof’.
Too bad GM discontinued these in at the Arlington, Texas plant in favor of more SUVs.

The AMC Eagles were way ahead of there time.

And what's the trend today?
I don't care what any of guys think, station wagons are STILL cool!
