To the Editor:
A note of thanks for John K. Teahen Jr.'s station wagon column ("C'mon, guys, they're station wagons," Jan. 23). For many of us, it brought back memories of exciting family vacations and trips that started with the loading of the wagon.
My dad could fit more camping and beach gear into that big Ford Country Squire than we would ever need. He was like a packaging engineer, utilizing every available cubic inch of space.
The death of the station wagon did not last.
Oh, they may have a different name and their sales may be miscounted in the truck grouping, but it's nice to see them return.
Those who supply caps for pickups may not like the idea; after all, we won't have to continue buying caps to turn our pickups into station wagons. Now, all I need to see is the new Ford Ranchero or Chevrolet El Camino.
