You know, when it was the Jackson 5ive's 1971 Cadillac station wagon that I didn't buy, I was fine.
But now that it's this suh-weet 1979 or so Fleetwood Brougham wagon which the Jalopnik guys spotted at Thunderhill, some kind of insane junk race, I'm getting a little weak in the knees.
Of course, it's probably not irrelevant to point out that this Cadillac is basically the upscale version of the 1977 Chevy Caprice Classic wagon I grew up--and learned to drive-in. And really, what says "increasingly transparent desire to relive a sugarcoated version of your own childhood" than suddenly wanting a slightly classier version of the giant, gas-guzzling land yacht you were once embarrassed to be seen in?
No sirree, I'm not gonna become my parents, uh-uh...
Caddy Wagon! [jalopnik via dt reader jt]
But see, it IS different: there are only six Cadillac station wagons! supposedly [stationwagon.com]
