Griswold Family Truckster Appears at Woodward

Even Aunt Edna came strapped to the roof.

Family road trips are becoming more and more a thing of the past. Despite the expensive plane tickets, people prefer to fly. But some of us still have plenty of memories of traveling long distances by car with the entire family. Before the era of the minivan, the station wagon was the family vehicle of choice. And the fictional Griswold family was no exception. Their Family Truckster has become perhaps the most famous fictional station wagon ever, and it’s spawned a legion of fans and replicas.

Some take their rolling homages to the real life version of Walley World. Others, like this guy, took his Family Truckster replica to the Woodward Dream Cruise last summer. He even invited Aunt Edna to come along.
