    Knowing that back in the day, the best looking cars were often the hardtops and the convertibles, but there were some stunning station wagon or as here estates, as well, which one is your favourite?

    My favorite estate is Chartwell, the principal home of Sir Winston Churchill.

    I remember as a child in the mid 1950s my Dad having one of those, or the Ford (UK) version, of what we then called a 'Shooting Brake'. Happy memories....

    Must admit, I enjoyed this whilst I had it, 21 years ago. Took me (off road) over a lot of the UK, and up the French and Swiss Alps.

    I don't know what it was, but my Dad bought it (a station wagon) from a friend of his and it had these windows on the roof just in front of the second seat that were like mini-windshields. I thought that was the coolest thing. Great for airplane watching and I used to pretend I was flying a WW2 bomber... Ah... Good memories. Think they rebooted the trade name on another station wagon a decade or more ago, but it just wasn't the same.

    Like the Vista Cruiser, but that Woody with that matching boat is awesome.

    Mom had a Ford Country Squire to haul around us kids. We were hardly ever allowed in her Cadillac.
    Genuine imitation wood paneling!

    That's because she was afraid you would poke holes in the roof with your Pickelhaube;)

    Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser - Thanks! That's the one! Wonder what an old one in good condition would cost?
