Now, That is a car.

I don't think I've ever seen one. I'm sure I would've remember it.

I think the Buick Roadmaster version (usually complete with woodgrain shelf paper down the sides) was a bigger seller than the Custom Cruiser of those years.

That's not right.. Isn't that like calling your brother or sister fat?

On second thought, now that I say it like that, it sounds OK

Ok, so tell me how bad it is that my hubby and I like this look:



Because the people on the Flex forum HATE this - I mean they really HATE it. Like they want to set fire to it...

It's cool, What is it? Some special edition?

It breaks it up and makes it look more sleek and less boxy.

What is this that we have?

Is it a station wagon or a SUV.

This picture shows it with the optional Snow Trim Package.

There was a Chevy Caprice version of it, too. When I was a kid my grandmother had a 1967 Ford Country Squire wagon with a 460. I remember my granddaddy saying it shared a frame with the Lincoln Continental. I wonder if that would tow an Airstream.

Here's another confusing one.
This is Susan's vehicle.
It does have four doors.
Is it a SUV or a Station wagon?
It has the optional Snow AND Mud trim package.
And it has selectable 4WD.

I'm sure it would. The question that would require some research is - How big an Airstream.

I think it's a look that would not wear well with time. The Flex is a large vehicle, and the wood pattern takes away its "sleek" style note, IMHO. In short, I think you would regret doing it in a while.

Well, it's a pickup with a shell on it, or at least, it looks like one...

My story is: It is a very large SUV with a roomy cargo compartment.

However the back seats fold down. Maybe its a Supersized station wagon.

I think we consumers need to take a stand and demand some rigid definitions. We can't allow these manufacturers to call their vehicles whatever they want?

We have set up several Volvo wagons. With the Turbo they are a great sleeper, who expects a Volvo wagon to clean their clock at a stop light and the handling is very precise and stable.
