Never liked those things back in the day as I always liked the SUV's of the time. Not much different really but the SUV's were basically 1/2 ton trucks which, IMO, made them cool. Still like the "real" SUV's today!. Of course, now I like those old boats as they truly are a slice of "Americana". Will never forget us all piling in the scoutmasters country squire and going camping. My neighbor had the big olds with the wrap around rear windows and a 455. Those cars were sleepers in what they could do.

My dad had a suburban which started my love affair of the SUV and someone previously mentioned a couple vehicles you never hear mentioned, the true Wagoneer/Cherokee and the international. My first vehicle was a 1976 2 door Jeep Cherokee with the 360, so my second was a 76 version, hard to believe what I see of asking prices for those now. My next 3 went up a bit on the "cool" gauge as they were the 79, 80 and 78 broncos.

Ahh, memories. Have been pricing out pre 90 4x4 suburbans and the old 78/79 broncos for a toy and will probably get one or the other before the end of the year!

Unfortunately, the 57 nomad is out of the question price wise!
