You hit it on the head with the San Onofre pic's. Those are the real surf wagons (as I remeber them) in the pic's i.e. VW vans, cheapo wagons, old bread trucks, hand me down cars, etc. Surfers did not generally put much time into their rides.....they were surfing! Although that 55 wagon looks like it could have belonged to a surfer who lived in say...Riverside

I've got an original 34 Woody Surf-Mobile.It really did surf duty in the 60's-90's
Infact it still has a board on the roof. a Con from Santa Monica.(Hometown when I was born).
My sis has her own version, which I have to make roadworthy again It's a 65 Falcon originally a Robt. H. Loud Ford-Pasadena car. 200 ci originall a 3spd now a 2sp auto.
I still have all of the original stuff, bit it to has done surf duty as well as raising a family duty.
Lastly Bro and Sis own a late model = 91 Trooper with surf and water polo stickers all over the back windows w/surf racks and The Long Board Grotto-Leucadia logo on rt rear window. Modern Surf wagon.

My Bro Bob surfed in the 60's/70s/80s/90s and ocassionally the milleneum up/down the coast and mosty said that things like Panels and 50's Ford,Chevy and Dodge wagons w/a mattress in the back and black spray painted windows were what the surfers were roaming the coast in.

Dig all kinds of panels-wagons, show some more.

I never get the whole no-surfer surfer car thing. I see them in Ohio, Indiana, in New York... surf boards on the roof... no surfable beach for miles.... I dunno.

But here's some inspiration so this reply won't be a total bust:

That's good for memories...

That's right at the Huntington Beach Pier.
The Comedian Pat Paulson usta go up and do an extra routine when Hoyt was to drunk to stand up.
I usta date the Golden Bear's Hostess back in the '60's.
She's a natural redhead...
Those were the days..
Pat Paulson and his Stag Party for president!

If you live in the mid west, get yourself a set of water skis or an old canoe. That would be a lot cooler.

I have wanted a cool surf wagon for a long time, but I would feel like a poser since I don't surf. I've been trying to convince my friend who surfs to buy a wagon so I can build one.

59cac thanks for your valuable input.


I am building a woodie and because so many now run surf boards on their cars, I dont think I will. maybe a vintage canoe or skis (live on a lake now, so they fit better).

my old surf wagon
