With the rise of the suburbs in the 1950's came a need for the perfect family hauler. Sedans did not have all the room most boomer families required and the thought of using an all terrain vehicle was far from any suburban families mind.
Today the wagon market is slowly slipping away from us, with no hope for change. AS CUV's give way to the ALV market, the wagon is slowly slipping away from us, molding itself into tall wagons and cross-trek models.
All hope may not be gone as the market blends itself together, but the true wagons of the past may never return. So, today we have to look back at this once great market and remember the great times we all had in them.
