There are many one-off station wagons shown in the book, including this 1934 Packard. Did you know Henry Ford made the first BBQ briquets and grill? Here is an original Ford BBQ grill on the tailgate of a 1935 Ford wagon.


Just about every wooden station wagon made is shown in the book, including these two rarities; a 1939 Chevrolet and 1939 Plymouth.
