Looks like a Baroque Bordello.

Sometimes I think us color blind guys must see a different, more harmonious world than others. I have never seen any colors that offended me, with the exception of some politicians wearing campaign buttons.

And I was definitely in the 60's and 70's. By all accounts, I had a good time. reports are still filtering in....

I love the 70s style! It is groovy.

Nice Color

Whats wrong with historic trends or colors? It just takes one influential person like Jay Leno (or myself ) to drive one of these to the big show and everyone will want one.

Alas, it doesn't matter if Jay Leno likes it or not, those old wagons were rode hard and put up wet and very few of them have survived.

I've always liked wagons.. I drive one, though it's a modern Subaru turbocharged ticket-getter as much as a grocery-getter, so it's not quite comparable to that Mercury beast.

Didn't see anyone post my original fabric.... which I still have under the slip covers. I try to keep everything that was original in case I sell someday and find that owner covets the original stuff. Now, what am I thinking? Would anyone really want that stuff? The curtains weren't original so I didn't need to save them.

Up here, they mainly just rusted away quietly. My wife's '77 "Country Squire Family Queen Truckster" was like the Energizer Bunny. Interior room by the acre, and unstoppable. Big yellow wagon with the fake wood on the sides.

Well, the only thing it couldn't pass was a gas station.
