For me, something like either of these would be very nice





Although this would be more practical and affordable

Came this close to pulling the trigger on a sportwagon (Or rather waiting to pull the trigger, it's not here quite yet)

Seems like it's going to be a great car,

Ended up with a last gen Subaru OB

I may have missed it, but I always thought the Olds Vista Cruiser was a cool wagon. (Me, my first 2 "family" cars when we started having kids were Taurus Wagons.)

Anyway:

However, I do still have a sales brochure and owner's manual. Something about that car that evokes a fun time in my life. Of course I was 9 in 1961.

Been lusting after a 240 for a while. Finally found a clean one for a good price. I almost like it more than the GTO....almost

I don't know if this is a wagon or a van, but Mazda did a good job of making a high utility fuel efficient vehicle very fun to drive.
I am allways amazed when I have 6 people in this car.

I think it is from NAS Corpus Christi...

We are close to Langley, now, though! It was an automatic VR6, but if it were a 6 speed, we'd still have it.
