I saw an awesome ad for this Ford wagon in an old Reader's Digest and was instantly inspired to create a fantasy piece with the old space age bachelor pad look of the late 1950's. Imagine, if you will, a world where mountain bikes became a reality in the days of Dick van Dyke & Mary Tyler Moore. A place where the old mountain bike road trip was taken in your new, totally cool station wagon!
