Recommended Posts

Those Buicks are stunning.

Really and Truly Buick and Caddy had the best styling of the early 50s.

Buick needs to put this into production now!...recapture the glory years.

But seriously, alot of thought and work went into this vehicle, obviously with a love of that era of Buick and wood.

Here's the website of the builder:

Those are all nice but give me a Packard woody any day of the week!

This 1940 Super 8 bodied by Hercules will do nicely.

Something so timeless about woodies....wonderful example.

1984_AMC_Eagle_Wagon.jpg

I'd love to have an Eagle for a DD.

I like those Eagles too.

Some people make jokes about the wood sided station wagons, and yes it's fake wood, but there is something so comforting about how they look, so Americana. They are the successors of the woodies.

Here's a nice example of a 1978 Chevrolet wagon:

Yes.

In 1973.

It was called an "Estate"

The less said the better.

Trying to provoke further comment, HE?

Ha Ha....no, but this car is part of GM history so I find it of interest.
