Nice little article. My wagon gets a lot of attention these days. It's starting to become annoying though.

Steve Morris has blown his up TWICE so far this Summer in pursuit of those 5 sec time slips.

Anyone could of had a old cheap car and still had it near 30 years later if they wanted to.:)
30 years ago, driving a Roadmaster wagon was basically the social equivalent of driving an Escalade. It was the biggest and most luxurious family hauler that an American could buy.

Ahh. Not really I rarely saw them . By 1995 when the Tahoe Came out most were driving those. Tahoe. Yukon Suburban Even in the 90's I saw hardly any wagons allover. Not many were around then and who knows just a few thousand are left now

Never saw one of these wagons on the road when they were new and I made multiple visits to GM dealerships in the mid 90s. I was an F Body guy at that time and would have never paid them any attention anyways. I didn’t even know they existed until I bought my first B Body back in 07 and joined this website. Just like today everyone was in trucks and SUVs. Minivans were a big thing back then as well.

What do production numbers have to do with anything? I said it was equivalent to driving a luxury vehicle like an ESCALADE, which has a base price of $80k. I didn't say they were sold in huge numbers like Tahoes and Suburbans.

Obviously, there is a reason why they stopped making station wagons in 1996. They had not been selling well.

You will see whatever you see, as the result of all sorts of variables.

A person who lives and works in Scottsdale, Arizona would see very different traffic than a person who lives and works in Flint, MI.

Neat article for sure. My 91 Caprice wagon got lots of attention when it was on the road, mostly from young adults oddly enough.

Lol, an Escalade is a peasant-mobile in Scottsdale. Driving there is always a treat, it's definitely where most of the special and exotic rides end up in AZ.
