Scouting Magazine Picks Five Best Vehicles For Playing With Kids

Illustration for article titled Scouting Magazine Picks Five Best Vehicles For Playing With Kids

Some of us were Scouts as kids, now we see the organization as a vaguely-militaristic-indoctrination club for parents living vicariously through their children, but hey, they've picked their five favorite kiddy-haulers.

Apparently Scouting families are not for want and prefer American, as the cheapest in the pack starts around $28k and there's one foreign-badged car in the crowd. Should you be a scouting parent and interested in their recommendations, below, in no particular order, are the 2009 Scouting Magazine picks for hauling your troop to a secluded camp far from the prying eyes of the general public:

You can check out the full cover, of which Ford is proud to have snagged, HERE and head over to Scouting Magazine to read through their reasoning for each choice but beware, one of the categories is "Coolest Optional Equipment." [Scouting Magazine]

You guys are all way too young. When I was in the scouts, (and my troop won a couple of the Northeast Jamborees) all of the leaders drove good old fashion Station Wagons! Remember those? It was quite a site in it's day.

Let's see if I can remember them... (remember, this was 1966, 67, 68) a 1958 Chevy Brookwood, a 1959 Chevy Parkwood, a 1959 Plymouth Suburban, a 1962 Chevy Impala Wagon, a 1958 Chevy Nomad Wagon, a 1961 Corvair Lakewood, and the newest one, a 1963 Ford Country Sedan. All the cars got into mud, hauled camping equipment, helped with our newspaper drive (to raise money), Took us all to Lake of Isles (which is now a Golf Course!), and they were all pretty rusty, and well used.
