    Dear V-8 Buick "longroof" fans,

    Station wagons have had a hard time getting any respect - but not any more! Even Hagerty has expressed their approval! They just ran the following piece in their online newsletter:

    Reviled no more, vintage station wagons are more than grocery getters - https://www.hagerty.com/articles-videos/Articles/2017/07/11/vintage-station-wagons

    To quote the article:

    "Station wagons, the midcentury standard of family transportation, were—for a while, anyway—reviled by pretty much anyone in the market for a “cool” set of wheels. The long roof, displaced from its market slot by the minivan in the 1980s, languished in relative obscurity among collector cars until the last few years. As SUVs, crossovers, and even luxury pickup trucks occupy the modern family hauler niche, good ol’ station wagons have made a cameo comeback in the collector car market."

    They even offer you some sage advice on how to select your vintage station wagon. So what are you'all waiting for? Run out and find yourself a nice, sweet Buick - wagon!! . . . [​IMG]

    Cheers, Edouard :)

    It's not news to me. I've always loved wagons. Down here I drive a limited-edition 2003 Holden Commodore SS long-wheelbase wagon which came from the GM factory with an LS1 (the 346 cu in Chevrolet V8 from a mid 1990s Corvette). Only 800 were made. Right now it's an ''ageing car''. I just have to make it through the ''old car'' phase to ''collector's item'' in about 12-15 years and then its value will double. Meanwhile, it's at 215,000 miles and counting...
