50´ies US Station Wagon (Generic. -Might be a Ford Fairlane 1959 Fordor Ranch Wagon)

This is vehicle number #20 (Ta´daa) made for the MegaMOC 2012.

While I find most of the cars from that epoque stunningly beautiful, many different trends, styles and tastes emerged at the same time, and was -unfortunatly- sometimes mixed and blended by the desginers.

So let this car be a monument to the humongous design-failures that was also done during these years; Wooden-style panels, two-tone body paint, white-wall tires, painted matching hubcaps, panoramic windscreen, partly covered rear wheels, huge metal bumpers, grotesque Texas-style longhorn ornament.

You name it; This car´s got it! Tasteless galore!

This is truly the car "Build for Homer".

-Or maybe what the "Wagon Queen Family Truckster" would have looked like 25 years earlier...
