    Over the years I've collected 1000's of magazines about American cars, last night I was thumbing through a few copies of British based "Classic American Magazine" and I found quite a few interesting articles about station wagons.

    (My mate Ben is the editor of this magazine, and he told me that the new promotion vehicle for the magazine will be a 1970's Buick Estate Wagon)

    Anyway, here's a list of articles I found:

    * 1966 Ford Galaxie wagon (customized)

    * Article with photos of 50's and 60's American station wagons in the UK

    * 1964 Pontiac Parisienne Safari (RHD, Canadian built)

    * Article about the CA Magazine 1974 AMC Ambassador Woody wagon

    * Two handy articles about tuning up the 1974 AMC Ambassador Woody wagon

    * 1959 Chevrolet Brookwood / 1959 Ford Country Sedan

    * 1957 Mercury Colony Park

    * 1959 Ford Country Sedan

    * 1959 Cadillac Sentinels ambulance

    * Road trip: The US East coast in a 1969 Mercury Colony Park

    * 1959 Cadillac series 75 Ambulance (Ghost Busters replica from Sweden)

    * 1959 Pontiac Bonneville Safari

    * 1956 Dodge Custom Sierra with D-500 package

    * 1957 Chevrolet Nomad

    * 1951 Ford Country Squire Sedan

    * 1958 Buick Century Caballero

    * 1956 Cadillac Series 62 (custom wagon)

    * 1954 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery

    * 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Nomad

    * 1962 Chevrolet Corvair 700 Wagon

    * 1958 Oldsmobile Dynamic Eighty-Eight Wagon

    * A special about Woodies

    * 1955 Pontiac Safari

    * 1958 Oldsmobile Super Eighty-Eight Wagon

    * 1958 Edsel Bermuda Wagon (woody)

    * 1941 Packard Woodies (One-Ten DeLuxe & One-Twenty)

    * 1956 Ford Country Sedan


    I'm sure that I have loads more, but this is what I found until now.
    Let me know if you're interested in any of the articles above, and I will post them on the forum.

    The other week I bought a new computer (with Vista Home on it), and now my old XP compatible scanner and this new computer are in a big fight....[​IMG]

    Have to figure this out first before I can make any scans....[​IMG]

    I think that Rob already posted my scans of the Caballero wagon, I saw those images in one of his posts on the forum.

    The 58 Buick is one of my favorite cars of all time, and the 4-door no post is my favorite of the sedans, so to see this as a wagon is even better!!!

    The model year 1958 two and four doors hardtops were Riviera models, and the HT wagons are called Caballero.
    But you could also buy a Special Estate Wagon with pillars.

    The Century based wagon was only available as HT Caballero model.
