As the Thanksgiving weekend came to a close, and as I was one of the kajillion road-tripping home, my mind turned to our old Grand Marquis Station Wagon. Wood Paneling, light tan, and, yes, power windows. My family of eight was living large.
If you grow up in a wagon, that love will never die. You turn your back on minivans, you embrace sport wagons, and you cultivate a reverence for all things wagon. And OF COURSE that translates to my diecast collection. Matchbox and Hot Wheels have done their share, and right now the most popular Hot Wheels model is a wagon (the 510).
But the premium brands 1/64 brands have some some gems as well. And I decided to focus on what Tomica Limited Vintage and Auto World have done. The bulk of the attention in this video goes to my favorite AW model, the Kingswood Estate, especially the now infamous “drop model”, the Lead Sled Ultra Raw.
Get your wagon on and enjoy the video:
