So this weekend, my new girlfriend and I took a trip from Ottawa to Hamilton for the Eric Church concert and we also stopped in at the Bass Pro shop to pick up some hunting and fishing gear. She has yet to see my wagon due to the cold Canadian winter. As we are travaling along, I stop an old RMW. It was white, had the wood panaling, lots of rust, steal wheels, driver was smoking in it. Not in the best of shape, to say the least. She jumps and says "baby!! thats your car!!"... To me any girl who can recognize a car that shes only seen once in pictures, AND get excited about it, is a keeper! Ha.

nice.

Update your profile with your location. I used to be in the Ottawa area, and there are still 2 members there (jayoldschool and convert2diesel).

My wife hated these cars. Now after driving my wagon she likes them and points them out all the time.

My wife has been driving a RMW for almost 5 years now and tolerates it. So far she took out a Mitsubishi in a parking lot (zero vis tropical rain), backed into my wagon (DOH!) and complains about the fuel economy. Now when she goes to pick up 50 cases of girl scout cookies there is never a word.... Smile

My wife has been driving these wagons for over 14 years now. She's on her second one, a 93 Caprice Woody with 58,000 miles

My wife does not appreciate the exhaust note or the 6 speed. She put up with me so I am happy.

I missed your intro post. Didn't realize you were Josh and purchased my DCM wagon.

I'll send you an email with jay CC'ed.

Got your emails Jason, yes I bought your Wagon! Dont worry she will be well taken care of! and thats the thing, my girl doesnt really know a cadillac from a toyota... so for her to point out a wagon is nice to know shes learning. I even let her drive my truck for the first time.. she did alright.. didnt want to park it though. Said it was to big. Ha.

Sadly (or maybe not...) my wife refuses to drive my OCC. She'll ride in it, but won't drive it.

The last time she drove a wagon it was my '96 Roady, she took the kids and dog to the lake to go hiking. When she came home the front wheel was nearly falling off the car. That's when I rebuilt the front suspension...she swore she had no idea what happened....

These past two weeks while I've been fixing up the Denali, she's been driving the Dodge Ram I gave to my father. My Dad is driving my OCC....he loves it and takes care of it like I do. Smile

If your girl likes these cars, be happy!

-Mike

Wife and son ,8, will point out other wagons. And if anyone looks at ours they both say, " They have wagon envy!"
