Wagoneer #6 on Cars That Changed the Automobile Industry

I just watched a somewhat cheesy A & E top 10 show about cars that changed the automobile industry. A 1963 Jeep Wagoneer made #6 due to it being the grandaddy of the SUV, since it was the first four wheel drive vehicle available with an automatic transmission.

This show is available as a streaming download on Netflix.

I am proud to say two of vehicles I have owned or own made that list, my GW (albeit an 89) and Chrysler's Minivan...now I have something to brag about! Now, if only I could get my hands on one of those Duesenbergs...

I can see how most of those made the list, but as a fan of the Deusenberg, I am somewhat baffled of the importance on that one. Bill, don't know about you, but I would have to win the lottery to buy one.

It did. It's a Doozy means that something is grand, large or big. Like "watch the first step, it's a Doozy."

The Duesenberg was a 30K dollar car during the depresson. Only movie stars and other extremley rich people. The cars were so over engineered that on some models you could adjust the suspension ride heigth and grease the front end all from the driver's seat.



I have owned the grandchildren of two of the cars on the list (85 GW and a 73 Beetle)
