This list would not be complete without the crazy but practical Checker Aerobus. Do you remember the Checker company? It was a long-gone independent carmaker that produced the Marathon. And that was a car famous for being the quintessential New York taxi for decades.
However, from 1962 to 1972, Checker produced the Aerobus. It was a stretched Marathon wagon with six or eight doors and seating for up to 15 people. The idea behind the Aerobus was to provide transport to airline pilots and flight attendants. The airlines wanted their crew at the airport on time.
But when people used their own transportation, arriving on time proved to be difficult. That is why they constructed the Aerobus, so the driver could pick up the whole crew and took them to the airport on time. Today, the Aerobus is a rare but interesting piece of station wagon history.
