As you all well know, I’m a big fan of station wagons. I don’t know exactly when I decided they were cool, but I specifically remember a couple instances growing up where I was around wagons that stuck with me. One was my dad’s friend Alan Pontier’s Nomad. It had a big block, a 4-speed, and was a bad ass machine. The other was a 1972 Chevelle station wagon that my dad and I saw at a Goodguys show in Pleasanton when I was probably 14 or 15 years old. It was for sale, for what seemed like too much money, but the damn thing was so cool I just couldn’t get it out of my head. I own two wagons currently, and have a list of others I’d like to own, and the Buick Sport Wagon and Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser have always been some that I love.
Who doesn’t love the windows in the roof on them? These are special wagons and you don’t see them nearly as often as those from Chevrolet. This one really is a barn find, and although the engine is locked up the rest of the car is ready for enough of a refresh to drive and nothing more. I’d leave the patina, but a big block Buick under the hood, and add a Gearvendors to it for some overdrive action. Make the interior comfy and drive it forever.
