Yes, I was one of eight....my mother had a Chevy Caprice Estate wagon with faux wood paneling.

[@475592,Dragon56] Ours was a late 1970's similar to the one pictured.
Dragon56 · 61-69, M
[@876949,mamabear41] Ours would have been an earlier model, as I was in my 20s in the late 1970s.

And they still only held five people

[@621893,whowasthatmaskedman] Some had an extra seat in the trunk area if I remember, I think ours did. Obviously it could only be used if there was no cargo in the trunk.

To caveat yours, back in my day, I’d try to pee out of that back window that’d roll down, because road trip timeliness was important to adults.

Do you mean when I had no concept of responsibilities?? Yup , those were the days lol
mamabear41 · 41-45, F
[@960316,Awfullybrave] Yep, except to get good grades in school 😁.
[@876949,mamabear41] Exactly 😁

I totally wanted one of the station wagons when I was in high school!

[@876949,mamabear41] 0-60 in 8 minutes and 200 feet to the gallon
PetitChou · 36-40, F
[@331316,Fernie] My first car did 0-60 in less than a week and used as much oil as it did gas. And if you rolled the passenger window down too far, the door popped open.
mamabear41 · 41-45, F
[@331316,Fernie] Yep, that's about right 😂.

mamabear41 · 41-45, F
[@830641,LucyBall] Lol, good luck trying to park it 😂. It always amazes me to this day how my parents were able to parallel park that thing in Chicago 😆.
