Classic station wagons head to auction in Michigan

Numerous examples of classic station wagons are heading to auction at the annual Motor City auction at the Concours d'Elegance of America in Plymouth, Michigan.

One of the stars of the show is a 1948 Packard Eight Station Sedan. Featuring a straight six engine, it was the first car on the market to feature a two-piece tailgate. It was also the last 'woodie' models that Packard produced, and as such was done so in very limited numbers.
