My cars - Phase III


---not my car, but an inspiration: 1932 Chevy wagon ---

In 1967 it was time to get a more practical vehicle with room to carry things in it (like lumber from the lumberyard since we were doing lots of home renovations) so I bought a 1967 Volvo 122S wagon - silver/grey, not red. At some time we replaced it with a yellow Toyota Corona wagon. Robert also had a car - first something from his parents, then a Chevy Nova, and then a Saturn.

Since then we have had a series of Subaru wagons: a Loyale, a Legacy, an Outback (dont remember the years), and now a 2017 Outback - our current car. (All have been silver.)

It is very convenient having a wagon with lots of room to carry stuff back and forth between our two houses, sound equipment to dance camp, and brush to the brush dump (8 loads this year). And with the back seat down you can lie down on the floor - foam cushion of course - good for non-driver on long trips.
