YAK Car Pic of the Day

Station wagons are in these days as collectibles, and, why not? I’d buy one — maybe even one like this 1953 Ford Ranch Wagon which I followed through the Tonawandas yesterday before it came to rest here. Full-sized two-door wagons fell out of favor in the 1960s, but there’s a certain charm about them that make them desirable as a fun investment. I especially enjoyed watching the driver work that three-on-the-tree as we seemingly stopped at every traffic signal we encountered. Those old barges were a lot more work than most of today’s cars.
