Chevrolet Caprice Wagon
The popularity of the station wagon started to drop in the late ’70s, thanks to the economic recession and fuel crisis. Those big, thirsty long roofs weren’t rational transportation anymore, so the buyers turned to smaller cars and foreign models. However, one of the models which kept its fan base was the Caprice Wagon which was produced from 1977 to 1990 with minimal changes.
This was one of the last classic boxy American station wagons that featured room for nine passengers. It came with simple but durable mechanics and numerous extras. Despite the appearance of the minivan in the early ’80s and its rising popularity, better fuel efficiency, and lower price, the Caprice Wagon kept became one of the symbols of the `80s American suburbia lifestyle along with those Chrysler K-Cars and the Fox Mustang.
