Pretty cool Mercury station wagon in Hemmings this month. How about a custom order 428 with 4-spd?

In 1959, my mother had never learned to drive. She had two children entering school. One day my dad showed up with a "playboy" pink ranch wagon, gave her the keys and said:  "Yours to enjoy, have fun". Started an extended Ford station wagon history in our home. Wish I had a pic from the day she received it.

OK, similar story...1966-ish, 3 kids and mom's never driven, she's about 33 years old.  Dad's doing well at work getting a second car ('67 Mustang GTA 390 fastback - NEW) mom finally learns to drive and gets the '65 wagon that was the only family car at the time, sorry not a Ford but do have a pic...326, 4-Barrel, Positrac,  dual exhaust and one with the '67 GTA.

what i think is a '57 Country Sedan ?  or Ranch Wagon ? with boat.

Ranch Wagon was Ford's two door wagon and Country Sedan was the four door wagon. The one in the photo is a '57 "Del Rio", which is a submodel of the Ranch Wagon that Ford came up with to compete with Chevy's Nomad in what may now be known as the "sport wagon" category.

I think I might have posted this earlier in another thread ?  '6?  Falcon wagon, Let's Go Surfing !

In my younger days early '60s,  I always pictured California as beach full of surfers and a highway full of hot rods   8)
