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