Caballero Station Wagon
The pink dinosaur. This car was soooooooooooooo cool. Written up as
the most chrome laden, ostentatious, over the top wagon to come out
of Detroit. Didnít deter me one bit. I thought it was beautiful.
I bought this one from a collector in Florida. The car was in really
nice condition. My mistake here was I planned to tow a trailer with
The old Buick dynaflow transmissions were bullet proof. They could
tow a house. This I knew and didnít have to worry about a thing.
What I didnít know was that in 1958 General Motors experimented with
a new transmission, Flight Pitch. A turbine type unit that had
virtually no low gear and had trouble pulling itself out of a paper
bag. So, I kept the car for a few years and enjoyed it anyway. It
went to a collector in the Dakotas and has since been sold several
times. Live and learn, learn and enjoy. I didnít loose any money
on it. Just maybe the opportunity to get something else that slipped
through the lines as things became more expensive.
