First of all: the third generation Ford Thunderbird is a gorgeous car. Second: wagons, especially in two (three?) door form are awesome. Combine the two, and you get this.
Just look at it.
I probably shouldn’t lust after a car, but if that’s wrong, lock me up.
The “wood” on the dash is a questionable choice, but otherwise I have no complaints. This would look right at home on Fifth Avenue, driven by a wealthy lady of excellent taste, loaded to the brim with her newly-purchased pillbox hats. Megan Draper, eat your heart out.
