Real Griswold Family Builds Station Wagon from National Lampoon’s Vacation

It was 1983 when National Lampoon’s Vacation arrived. That was when we met the Griswolds, a typical American family, with a bumbling dad, who loved to take road trips; journeys across the country on the open road. In the beginning of the movie, Clark Griswold buys a huge and pretty ugly station wagon for the journey, and now someone has made it for real.

The Griswold’s hideously stupid car was called the Wagon Queen Family Truckster. It was a funny comment on all of those awful faux wood-paneled station wagons of the ’70s and ’80s. The movie people built the Truckster from a 1979 Ford LTD Country Squire.

Now Steve and Lisa Griswold (I’m not kidding – that is their real last name) built a replica of the Truckster out of a 1984 Ford LTD Country Squire, and take it on road trips. Let’s hope that Steve is not as inept and bumbling as Clark. No detail has been overlooked. It even has a fake gas cap hatch where it was in the movie. Check out more here.
