"RETRO SUV"


Spotted at Target, originally uploaded by daddytypes.

Alright, suburbs, you win this round.

This pristine Buick Estate Wagon was the first thing I saw on my way out of Target when we left the city Saturday for a Case of Pampers run [and a visit to Chick-Fil-A].

I don't like nosing around other peoples' cars, but it looked immaculate and original. The only addition appeared to be a large pair of rear speakers, and those might have been put in in the 80's.

The license plate said, "RETRO SUV," so this car is clearly in self-aware hands. I debated sticking around and waiting for the highly evolved owner to emerge, if only so I could see the clamshell tailgate open. But K2 let me know that she was more than ready to go.
