There are plenty of wooden galoshes and slippers around, which means that wood can be used to make useful shoes. The thing about woodens is that they always tend to look quite old-fashioned.

Corvette Stingray Shooting Brake Aerowagon: Grab Your Groceries at 190 MPH

There’s something about a nicely-designed station wagon. Maybe it’s because of all of the Audi Allroads I’ve been seeing, but they make appealing vehicles, especially if you have to lug a lot of stuff around and you don’t want a full-on SUV.
