Remember the "Clam shell" rear doors on seventies wagons? Click here to see the madness
I remember seeing these in the showroom at Turner Buick where my dad worked. They were a NIGHTMARE even new! The alignment problems started before they were delivered. They were such a failure I don't ever remember even seeing one in person outside of those brand new ones on the showroom floor!
I drove a 1973 Buick Estate wagon for seven years. I liked the clamshell tailgate. It only needed repaired once in seven years. I still own it even though I haven't drove it in years. Here is a picture of my old wagon.
