A parking lot is a parking lot is a parking lot—unless it’s the Summit Racing parking lot. On any given day or time, the lot outside a Summit Racing store can turn into an impromptu mini car show, depending on who’s stopped by the store. Each Wednesday, we’ll share our parking lot find of the week—another benefit of being Powered by Summit Racing Equipment.


We like station wagons here at OnAllCylinders.

Despite some objections, we named Red Forman’s Vista Cruiser to our list of the Top Ten TV Cars of All-Time. And we also like to share cool station wagons, such as the 1960 Chevrolet Parkwood, in our weekly Lot Shots feature.

For our money,  there’s no cooler station than the Chevrolet Nomad. Originally part of Chevy’s legendary Tri-Five family, the distinctive two-door wagon took everything that was great about Chevrolet’s popular “shoebox” design and added extra interior space, so families could roadtrip in style.

We recently spotted this 1957 Cheverolet Nomad outside the Summit Racing Retail Store. It’s not a Metallic Pea Family Truckster, but it’ll do nicely.

We’re ready to hit the Mother Road for some cross-country fun. How about you?
