with apologies to Ogden Nash...
My dad always owned station wagons. They're wonderfully versatile and tractable vehicles. It's a shame that they've all but disappeared from the marketplace.
FYI: It's a '56 Chevy Nomad (2 door) wagon, quite rare. The " 57's had a much sharper tail fin, supposedly patterned after the F-86 Saber Jet. My buddy in high school had one.
No, BJ, it's not a Nomad. The Nomad was Chevrolet's top of the line 2 door wagon, with a sloped pillar behind the hardtop door.The car in this photo (with an upright sedan post B-pillar and C-pillar) is a '56 Chevrolet Two-Ten Handyman 6 passenger station wagon. Chev also offered a more stripped down version called the One-Fifty. You can see the different models here:http://56classicchevy.com/1956-chevrolet-station-wagons
But you're absolutely correct on the year, I apologize and have fixed it!
Well there yah go. me going off a fifty year old memory, and somebody who has so much free time that they research a simple internet comment. My compliments to you "Steve' for a totally tactless comment.
With all due respect, BJ, I think you're being a tad hypersensitive.I didn't find Steve's comment to be at all tactless. Steve was just correcting a minor error and elaborating on the car's lineage. I read no malice in Steve's comment whatsoever.Peace. This fabulous blog is no place for ill feeling.
didn't you have a teal one of these years ago ?
