YAK Car Pic of the Day

If you, your parents, your grandparents, or a neighbor didn’t own at least one bow-tie wagon, you must be from another continent. Here’s one of the cheaper ones: a 1968 Chevy Biscayne which, being at the bottom of the totem pole, didn’t have much to brag about in the way of features. So the brochure writers decided on these: “Beautiful new Chevrolet grille styling; Deep padded armrests on all doors that shield newly styled door handles; and a counter-balanced tailgate that yawns open on a bandshell-big rear compartment.” Wow. That’s big. This blue (or is it green?) one, with some sort of muscly steel rims, was spotted recently in a West Seneca driveway. You can see the ’68 Chevy wagon brochure here.
