The prospect of spending you next vacation skinny dipping with Christie Brinkley may make you want to be Clark Griswold. And while you can't have his Wagon Queen Family Truckster, today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Country Squire may the next best thing, but is its price a trip not worth taking?
Having a car about which you don't give a rat's butt cheeks can be freeing. You're free not to have to get out and move that shopping cart blocking your parking space, choosing instead to shoot it out into traffic by ‘braking late.' You won't mind being the driver when someone offers up ‘I'll buy if you fly' and the destination's Taco Bell as you don't mind driving with all the windows down. And lastly, parking in a bad neighborhood isn't a problem if your car actually lowers property values merely by its presence. Yesterday's thrasher ‘85 Caprice Wagon was just such a master beater and with only eight Benjamins required for purchase, it's no surprise 82% tagged it as Nice Price.
