    upload_2021-11-25_5-24-6.png 1947 Pontiac Station Wagon


    Our story of those teenage Thanksgiving days were early dinners the day before and then taking off for Baja Mexico for 5 wonderful days of surfing vacations. Then, as those continued, we had to figure out when we would have the rest of the two families annual gatherings during the holidays.

    The 327 powered Ford Sedan Delivery played a big part of the later decisions to gather for the whole extended family functions. Then the same sedan delivery played a part of the in house, parents only, dinners. The sedan delivery was roomy enough to transport just about anything necessary.

    Thinking of taking the train to the relatives houses for Thanksgiving, well, have a “station wagon” meet you at the train station to give you a cool ride to the gathering. The history of station wagons goes back to the days of train stations and the courtesy service that the train stations had. Hence the name, “Station Wagon.” But, in these modern times, if the stay is at a nearby resort hotel, perhaps they could send a station wagon for customer service.
    So Cal: The Lido House, Lido Isle, Newport Beach, CA

    Here in So Cal, the Amtrak does not allow dogs on the coastal train, so, this is the alternative to meeting and greeting the rest of the family at the big gathering. A cool station wagon for the whole family to come as you are in comfort and style.
    Seating for eight inside, a slight rake with extra heavy air shocks... 1948 the last year for wood bodied, Pontiac Station Wagons, with Hydramatic transmission

    The size of this old 1947 Pontiac Woody Station Wagon is larger than most full size SUV behemoths on the road today. (Escalade: 202 inches Range Rover 196” )
    although it is a little lower and a “little cooler.”

    Last Christmas, in reference to my dad’s obsession with Buick sedans throughout his life, I drew what I thought would have been a cool thing. It would have been fun to drive up to their house in the 60s with my brother, to show them what we created for him. All we knew from 1946 on, to the time we left the Westside of Long Beach house was a Buick sedan or two or three… 9, all accounted for in the timeline.

    I thought the Buick was the coolest long Station Wagon. But the 1947 Pontiac Station Wagon had the extra metal front fender that made it look elegant and stately. IOHO

  12. Thank you so much, Ryan, for giving us this community. And thank you, fellow H.A.M.B.ers, for broadening my knowledge and entertaining me during some difficult challenges. I may yet get a hotrod on the road instead of just collecting dust in the garage.

    Hope everyone's having a good one, or if (like me) you're sitting around on your ass with nothing to do, get something done on your hot rod. ;)

  24. My grandmother never cooked a turkey in her life, if we had turkey for Thanksgiving at my grandparents home it was up to one of the aunts to cook it, when she was a child she had a pet turkey, the story goes that there were no other kids around, she was a teenager by the time the turkey died.
