The E series Mercedes-Benz, Dodge Magnum, Volvo V series and Scion xB are adequate proof that station wagons (in one form or another) are coming back in style. Personally, I have no idea why they fell briefly into obscurity with the rise of SUVs, since there's no real comparison. I myself own an '04 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback and it's been a really rewarding experience - I've always loved wagons and always wanted to own one... now I do. So I definitely know how the both of you feel!

I to have been infected by the big wagons of the 60's and 70's. While growing up my Father always owned a Big Chevy wagon. Now I am 37 and own my fourth large wagon. I sometimes get tired of one and sell it, only to start looking for another one. The minivan thing is just not for everyone. I hope you find one soon.

My family had two Ford wagons when we were growing up; a '65 Country Squire and then a '72. Both were fabulous. The '71-72 LTDs have the best hood lines ever produced and the 400-2V in our '72 was the best sounding V8 I have ever driven (and I've owned quite a few "classics", including a '69 Corvette, a '71 LeMans, and a '72 Cutlass). I am currently in the process of restoring a '72 LTD convertible with a 429. It doesn't get any better!

I'm also a big fan of the giant station wagons of the 1960s/1970s myself, especially the ones with wood paneling, I sure wish they can make cars with style and personality like they did back in the 1960s/1970s.
