10. Chevrolet Caprice Wagon
The station wagon popularity started to drop in the late ’70s along with the economic recession and fuel crisis. The big, thirsty long roofs weren’t rational transportation anymore because buyers wanted smaller cars or foreign models. However, one of the models that retained its fan base was the Caprice Wagon. And Chevy produced it from 1977 to 1990 with minimal changes. The Caprice Wagon was one of the last classic, boxy American station wagons that featured room for nine passengers.
It came with simple but durable mechanics and with numerous extras. Despite the minivans of the early ’80s and their rising popularity, better fuel efficiency, and price, the Caprice Wagon kept on selling. It became one of the symbols of the ’80s American suburbia lifestyle, along with Chrysler’s K-Cars and the Ford Mustang.
