Mocha Dick: 1969 AMC Rebel Wagon

Every day, I drive down the roads in suburban SoCal, and lament the takeover of ugly crossovers and sport futility vehicles.  I get the usability of the modern small SUV…I really do…but when did needless vertical height become a cure-all for ugly tail lights?  And why can’t we have wagons?  When did V8 powered rear-drive wagons become not a thing that new car shoppers want?  Am I the only one who would rather drive something ancient to avoid introducing yet another turd shaped blight on the automotive landscape?  Get off the lawn…that’s where I park my boat!  Find this 1969 AMC Rebel Wagon offered for $6000 in Lexington, KY via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
