We're all getting old aren't we? Would have thought that our
biggest car dreams (ok, ones that have a chance of coming true,
I'll never get a DB4) are about Station Wagons. That ZT-T in
St. Paul (the fairgrounds are in St. Paul, that's important
to some Minnesotans ;-) is the perfect car for my family. 

As it is, I'm hoping my old 626 makes it long enough to be able
to get a Mazda 6 wagon. 

Wagon, roadster, they're practically the same right? :-)

'77B whose rubber bumpers aren't so bad, though RV8 bumpers
would be better.
