    Went 4 dr HT instead of 2 dr. At the NY auto show it was called Aster. Not sure what the production name was. Olds was also a 4 dr but was named Holiday. Sweet wagons for sure.

    Fact check on aisle three!

    Are you thinking of the Waldorf Nomad?

    Absolutely no comparison between the Caballero and the 56 Safari. Caballero wins hands down.

    Nawww !!! Safari all the way. Safari was also a 4 door machine. Saw a nice one in the auctions at Carlise yesterday.

    Only two door hardtop wagon built was the Mercury 57,58,59.

    They are ALL beautiful cars but i have always been partial to the 55 56 and 57 Chev Nomad wagon and of course my own 74 Chev Caprice Estate wagon. Cheers. George
