Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

Those b-body wagons are fantastic, especially the Roadmaster variant.

I think vehicles like that are cool in a sort of ironic/retro sort of way. They're not cool in the same sense that a classic Corvette or BMW is cool, but cool in a "last of their kind/from a different era" way. I generally look at my Fiero in that way - it's not a great car, but as the sole example a production domestic mid-engine car it's pretty cool. :) The b-body wagon was an eyesore when it was new, and every one you saw on the road was driven by someone who wished they'd bought something else. 25 years later, you have the ability to discard pragmatism and good sense and just enjoy something a little weird from another time. In 1993, I would have rather walked... but in 2018, I slow down every time I pass my neighbor's "harvest gold" Caprice wagon. It has Cragars and some ghost flames! :D I keep hoping they put a For Sale sign in the window. ;)
