The towing capacity of the Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon is truly impressive. Take a look at this sight on Route 2 in Exeter, Rhode Island that Kara snapped while I was driving. Someone taking their massive sailboat out of the water to winter storage, all while holding seven people inside.
UPDATE: Check out my new Roadmaster: https://dennishouse.tv/2014/10/09/the-houses-have-a-hearse/
Once the steady supply of Mercury Colony Parks had dried up; the last car IGA mogul Adam Bozzuto had was a Roadmaster.
Mr. Bozzuto enjoyed a loaded full sized car; but tended to eschew anything that would so much as hint of personal ostentation (there was nothing snotty about Adam Bozzuto) so the big woody wagon fit the bill.
