Growing up as a kid my family had the Olds Vista Cruiser and the Ford Falcon.

These were the SUV's of yesterday.

This is great. You can lower your cholesterol too while hauling kids around.

My parents had a basic Falcon wagon when I was a kid. Horrible freaking car.
It blew an engine going over a Mississippi River bridge.

Good riddance... it was replaced by a Chevy Bel Air, which was a heck of a lot nicer.

What's the memory of today's kids 30 years from now? What would they say to their kids? Son, I never forget road trips we took in my dad's CUV. Loved the sound of that CVT.

NYTom, this would have been like a horror movie to a teen about to get their first car in the 1960s, but they do look pretty cool in retrospect. You did leave out the only really cool station wagons from the 1960s: the Jeep Grand Wagoneer/Cherokee, the International Harvester Travelall, and the General Motors Suburban. Everything was BIG!! back then.

I'd love to get my hands on a 1964 Chevelle two-door wagon. Less than 3000 were produced. Even fewer in 1965.
