When I was in 3rd grade, we had a neighbor with an AMC Hornet just like this. His Mom drove that thing and she musta been 6 ft 2 inches tall and like to drink. We had a red headed retarded kid in our class (no offense Flave) that we were all pretty nice to last name of Splitstone. One Friday morning as my twin brother, a neighbor kid and myself walked to school, the Splitstone paterfamilias confronted us claiming we were picking on his retarded son and threatened an ass whooping. He smelled of booze and had tobacco juice drool down both sides of his cheeks. My brother and I never said anything to our parents as we weren't narcs, but our friends apparently had told their folks.
Come Monday morning that Splitstone fella was back threatening us kids and I will never forget the feeling of absolute glee, seeing my buddies mom and her amazonian self pulling up in that AMC Hornet telling that old hobo (no offense meant here Certifiable) what exactly she was gonna do to him if he didn't head right back where he came from.
They replaced it with a Bronco 2, which has to be the perfect replacement vehicle.

Yep a 1966 chev biscayne wagon, took the six out eventually and put a V8 in it, then changed it from Armstrong steering to power steering. Also had a 1970 LTD wagon with a 390 in it, used to turn air cleaner lid upside down and you could really hear the 4 barrel open up.

Mom had a white Peugeot 504 diesel. Can't remember when, but it was probably in the mid-late 70's. I remember it being a good vehicle.

The second vehicle I owned was a 1960 Rambler wagon I got for $200. Got it home a found it had a c-clamp holding the diff cover in place. Rebuilt the rear end and it turned out to be a pretty good party car. Next best thing to a cargo van. Back when cars still came with those aerodynamic fins for flying down the highway. LOL
My folks had one of them when I was a kid. Caramel Copper color. Had a push button auto trans that I thought was pretty cool. I was too young to ever drive it.
Guy in high school circa 1979 had a Chevy Nomad IIRC Dropped a engine, trans, rear axle in it. That thing would move!!!! Front tires lift off the road 7 or 8 inches if he got on it from the start. Fugger burn the rear tires going up hill for 100 150 ft or until he let off it or gained traction thru speed.

I had two Jeep XJ, two ZJ and one WJ. 4wd station wagons IMHO
you know the original wagoneers and cherokees were classified by DOT as station wagons... long after essuvees had been invented I had a police officer ask me why my registration said it was a station wagon... I guess he didn't realize that the essuvee was johnny come lately to the four door 4x4 game...
what were Broncos and k5s registered as? I do t recall them having the same first two tag digits the way ford and chevy (each their own unique two digits) pick-ups did...

In 1966 my dad gave me his '57 Chevy wagon so I could rebuild the blown motor and have something to drive. I did a literal shadetree job of it, honing the cylinders with the block still in the car. I forgot to mark the rod caps and got them mixed up, and the motor was stuck. A mechanic friend towed the car to his shop and straightened out the mess. We drove that wagon all over the Colorado Rockies summer and winter for years afterward. Later I had a '62 nova wagon given to me, and this time I put in a short block and drove that car for years as well. Wife and I had a '76 Ford wagon with the wood-look sides and rear roof portholes, also given to us with a blown rear end. Cost 100 dollars to bring a replacement from the salvage yard and get it bolted up. A whole progression of Cherokee Chiefs, Wagoneers, Grand Wagoneers, and a Suburban have followed, up to the present Expedition. I also feel a 4x8 sheet of whatever should fit inside so it don't get ruined on the way home.
