I think my mom had the Ford Country Squire, with the fakey wood paneling strip on it. The Wikipedia entry talks about how the original was a woodie, and then they moved into the fake wood detailing. Clas-say, my family was.
Oldsmobile had the Vista Cruiser, which came with a unique feature, a bumpy little glass skylight dome thing. (This is the car Eric Forman drove in "That 70s Show," and that was crushed in "National Lampoon's Vacation.)
Wikipedia says station wagons started to fade with the 70s gas shortages, but I remember them being everywhere that decade. It was really the introduction of the minivans, which Baby Boomers mistakenly felt were cooler than station wagons, that put the final nail in the coffin of station wagons. I always silently cheer when I see one on the road today.
Station Wagon.com is a fun trip down memory lane. What station wagon did you ride in? Did you fight to sit in the way back and wave at the drivers on the road behind you?
