Looking Backward: America's Love Affair with the Station Wagon
“Looking Backward” is the new photographic tribute to classic American station wagons from 1941 to 1992.
Looking Backward” is wonderful storytelling. It’s not just the story of station wagons, but a story of America. The book’s evocative photos have movement, driving us back through time. And its anecdotes about the vehicles, the designers and the auto industry itself make for a fascinating read. Above all it is an American love story, rekindled through these pages.
The book is an attractively presented, full color paperback collection of tributes to some 26 classic American wagons. It covers many iconic as well as some lesser-known examples of these practical and quintessentially American family cars. John Jordan’s beautiful photographs are accompanied by Will Bodine’s breezy text, covering some well known, (and not-so-well-known) facts about the cars many Baby Boomers grew up in. Some wagons included are 1941 Buick Special Estate, 1957 Chevrolet Nomad, 1958 Edsel Bermuda, and 1967 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser.
