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.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
