For $100K, this LTD Family Truckster replica must be “a damn fine automobile”


As jaw-dropping and mind-boggling as we find Vacation’s original Wagon Queen Family Truckster, we’re struggling even more to make sense of the $100,100 that someone paid for a 1981 Ford LTD custom wagon Truckster re-creation at Barrett-Jackson’s Palm Beach auction last weekend.

I recognize those headlights. Look like they came from a Chysler 5th Avenue circa 1983 or a Dodge Diplomat same vintage. What the heck…roll up windows?? I got a 66 Merc Park Lane 428 that looks like the Green Hornet machine for half that $$$.
