    I'm not a huge Mopar fan, but I love most all of their wagons from the late '40s to the early '60s. There's something about their designs that translate into a wagon form the best.

    Here's one of my favorites. I just found this image on the web, but I'm pretty sure I've got a magazine with this car from years ago.

  3. I always wondered how Dodge/Plymouth used the Suburban name? I thought it was a Chevrolet name plate?

  4. Here's a picture of my '53.

  6. Not on @Jive-Bomber Jay's list of MoPar wagons, but I've always liked Grant Ragsdale's 1954 Plymouth Belvedere Wagon:

    GM was unable to trademark the name initially, because someone else had trademarked it. Apparently, the owners of the trademark did not enforce it, so the term became generic, like the word "sedan". It wasn't until after everyone else stopped making suburbans, and GM had been doing so exclusively for many years that they were able to get a trademark. That happened in 1988.

    This post does NOT help my desire to own one of these cars. I have always liked them and dream of having one someday. I'm a big Mopar fan and it would be a lot of fun to have one.

    A great list and all cars I'd love to have, although I have to note that the Christine movie car (and in the book) are 1958 models.
