Colony Park!

Saw an absolutely gorgeous 1974 Colony Park wagon cruising down the highway yesterday afternoon. The car looked to be immaculate. It was medium blue with the wood grain trim. I was trying to think how long it's been since I'd seen one of these in action...has to be at least a decade or two. Even my wife thought it was cool!

It's always a nice shock to see something so out of the ordinary.

I'm a fan of station wagons in general. I'd love a '71 Olds Custom Cruiser (or maybe a '72).

Always liked the front end styling of the '71-'72 Custom Cruisers. And the rest of the car for that matter. :)

But back to Mercurys...took my driver's test in a '71 Marquis Brougham 2-door hdtp. That thing was a blast to parallel park! It was also a blast when the accelerator was stomped upon...that 429 was a storming engine.

I've always loved the Mercury Colony Park wagon ads that stated, "If Lincoln Continental made a station wagon, this would be it." [Of course there were appropriately staged models and background photographs commensurate with the image sought accompanying this text.] The hideaway headlamps, whose door coverings changed trim almost annually, were a nice feature on these wagons.
