Just got back from Raceway Park drag strip in Englishtown, NJ. They had their annual Nostalgia Old Time Drags and were filled with classic autos and funny cars. I was pleasantly surprised to see some station wagons, mostly Chevy Nomads. I don’t remember what the car above was, but it had a little remote control inside to lower it to the ground. Below are pics of some of the show cars, plus a couple Nomads getting ready for the 1/4 mile.
While station wagons are known for their CARGO capacity, they should not be confused with cargo SHIPS. Luckily no one was injured when this BMW wagon was driven into the Newark Bay in NJ, as posted by the Hudson Reporter.
We had some flooding outside the studio this week, but not as bad as last year. There was a moment when I was driving during the storm and heard hail stone pinging off the roof. With such a huge surface area and no insulation I felt like I was in a pop-corn popper as I watched stones the size of marbles bounce off the hood. No damage and I was sure to park on high ground.
