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.

It’s the time of year when late-teens and twenty-somethings head South for spring break.

We doubt any of them are making the pilgrimage in a ride as sweet as this 1958 Ford Ranch Wagon we spotted outside of Summit Racing. Along with the Chevrolet Nomad, the Ranch Wagon made the Amercian road trip cool thanks to late-1950s space-age styling, a sporty two-door option, and enough room for six or 10 of your closest friends.

That’s a party on wheels!
