please tell me it had wood panels!? im a fan either wayPiling into the family station wagon to go visit my Grandmother who lived in Crozet, Va. Back before anyone really wore seat belts, we would bring our pillows with us and sit on the floor of the car with the pillow on the seat and sleep most of the way there.
I also remember riding in the back of pick up trucks when we were little.
this is a really unique one. i wouldn't know about the stamp thing since its slightly before my time. thanks for sharing!I remember my mother, grandmother and aunt would collect yellow stamps or green stamps, them redeem them for some glassware or other houseware stuff. I think they got them when they went grocery shopping, may be wrong though. I just remember her sticking those damn stamps in a book and being so happy when she got a page filled.
I loved Bonanza and Gunsmoke.Or at least had Hop Sing making more nutritious meals.
Did you cut straws and put them on the spokes to make noise?
Hell yeah, and a mounted tube to launch bottle rockets from the handle bars.Don't forget the deck of cards flapping on the spokes.
No wood panels on ours. We had a Ford LTD wagon, maroon, the top over the back part bumped up a little bit....I always thought it looked a little like a hearse. It had those fold down seats in the very back that faced each other.please tell me it had wood panels!? im a fan either way
without googling, I believe country squire is correct. ours was a gray mercury of some type. my parents drove it until one day it wouldn't go in reverse at church and the girlscouts and myself had to push it out of the parking space so we could get it home. it was traded for an all white grand caravan RIPNo wood panels on ours.

Our neighbors had the station wagon with the wood panels. For some reason the name 'Country Squire' comes to mind. I'll have to Google it now!
