Format: Paperback
If you like reading about the history of autos and like station wagons in particular, you will enjoy this book. It covers the normal wagons, woodies,the little ones and the big ones, plus some of the odd ball designs. One of the best I have found on station wagons.

Format: Paperback
I found “Station Wagons” an excellent read. Very comprehensive and focused covering the birth of the wagon and its growing popularity to its last stand in the 90's and the death of the traditional wagon (a la Caprice & Roadmaster). This book focuses on the changing trends of the time and gives reasons to its rise and fall and perhaps rebirth as a cross-over. “Station Wagons” not only provides a wealth of information on specific models and industry changes, but also provides ample amounts of clear colour pictures (just check out the picture of the 70 Olds Vista Cruiser with the 442 and W30 performance option) and period ads. In all, a well-written book that was focused and clear covering the changing models and industry of a bygone era.

I have owned and driven many station wagons over the decades and really wish they could replace the now too common SUV. They were much more versatile than anything on the road today. Enjoy.
