Had some great pictures of a lost era of cool that now has a stigma of a pedophile van. This picture is of someone who embraced that idea with pananche… or gave the pedo’s a head start idea.

The Art of Haulin’ Shit & Ass

Sick of bland, uninspired Japanese sedans? Or are you just offended by the Hummers and Excursions of the world? Are you running late? Well, you’re in luck. Your old friend the Station Wagon is on its way back, and faster than ever.

Often overlooked and underappreciated as your grandmother’s car, the station wagon took a back seat to our nations love of SUV’s over the past few decades. Other than the occasional soccer mom with sensibility, or indie hipster elitist (of which the old Volvo wagons have become a bastion), the estate car was a rare find on these shores. But if you’ve keep your eyes peeled while on the highways and byways around your neck of the woods, you may have noticed an increase of the original utility vehicle on the road. And if you’re especially lucky, you may run across one of the below uber asphalt chewers doing their thing. Pulling up to the traffic light, these multi-taskers are capable of making the 18 year old kid in his Mustang to your left, AND the mid-life crisised Corvette driver to your right, crap their pants. Check out some of the finer estates that excel in the art o’ Haulin’ Shit & Ass
