Check out this awesome replica of the Wagon Queen Family Truckster from National Lampoon’s Vacation. This is a damn fine automobile. It’s not just for the likes of Clark Griswold either. You can own this one for yourself.
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.

I’ve always thought it would be fun to cover a wall in my office with a mural of a tropical sunset, since the likelihood of an actual beach vacation seems less and less likely with my busy work schedule these days.
