Drive the Bid Podcast: Our Favorite Station Wagons

The family hauler gets some love


Did you grow up with Mom driving you around in a station wagon? Or maybe you got stuck driving Mom’s Country Squire?

In this episode of Drive the Bid podcast from AutoHunter.com, Derek Shiekhi, “Jalopy Jeff” Sutton and I discuss our favorite family haulers. Though somewhat replaced by the minivan, and then the SUV, the station wagon enjoys wistful nostalgia from Americans from sea to shining sea. Once eschewed as anathema for anything cool on four wheels, the station wagon is now fondly held to higher stature in the collector car world. Plus, there have been some really awesome wagons in modern history.

Do you have a favorite wagon?

Other discussions include news on the throwback 2024 Bronco Sport Freewheeling Edition, the 2024 Chevrolet Traverse, and a shipping vessel with over 2,000 vehicles that’s on fire near the Netherlands.

Of course, each of us picked our favorites currently listed on AutoHunter, including a 1970 Ford F-250 4X4 dually that’s been upgraded with a bit of old/a bit of new, 1950 Plymouth panel wagon, and a modified 1968 Chevelle.

All this can be seen in the above video from AutoHunter Cinema, created by the experts behind ClassicCars.com, the world’s largest online collector car marketplace. AutoHunter brings forth a dedicated live customer support team, quicker auction listings and exclusive benefits for both buyers and sellers.

Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in the Southwest.

  2. A Colony Park wagon man myself, had a 1986, and now in the garage a 1989 Mercury Colony Park LS, very much like the one driven by Murray on The Goldmans. I get teased a lot about being Chevy Chase, but I love to drive this vehicle, its nimble, light on the steering and lots of glass viewing. Always wanted my folks to get a wagon back in the day….. but I finally got my own!
