National-Lampoon-Vacation-Station-Wagon-Is-Going-to-Auction

When it comes to Barret-Jackson, they more than live up to their “world’s greatest collector car auctions” trademark. This year’s Palm Beach auction (April 11 – 13) is full of classic cars we want to park in the garage. There’s a 1968 Ford Mustang Eleanor Tribute Edition, a 1953 Buick Skylark Convertible, a 1964 Chevy Corvette Custom Convertible, a 1986 Porsche 930 and the incredible station wagon you see here. A 1981 Ford LTD Custom Station Wagon is probably not the first thing you’d look for at a classic car auction, but as you’re probably already aware, this one is special. This isn’t any early 80s Ford wagon, this is a recreation of the Wagon Queen Family Truckster from the iconic film National Lampoon‘s Vacation. This is a modern recreation of the wagon from the film complete with 5.0-liter V8 and automatic transmission, so as long as you don’t drive like Chevy Chase did in the film, it should be a comfortable ride for years to come.

In short, this is a key-shaped multi-tool built of stainless steel that has all of the tools you need for everyday repairs for everything from light switches to bicycles. Bit driver. Protractor. Metric and Imperial rulers. Imperial and Metric closed wrenches. Bottle Opener. File. Scoring tip. Wire bender and bike spoke key. Wire stripper. Screwdrivers. 1/4 hex driver pocket. So you might need to throw in some hex bits for specific projects, but otherwise, the Geekey has you covered for almost all of your everyday repair needs. As if that wasn’t enough, the hexogon can also serve as a smoking bowl, with the shaft of the key hollowed out to serve as a pipe.
