Fantastic idea! I am seeing this project for the first time and love it! My parents had one of these in these station wagons in the 70's so it feels like a visit to my childhood again. The Christmas Vacation movie is one we have to see every year, too!

Oh my goodness! What fantastic memories you bring up with this idea! Where did you get the car? My stepdad would absolutely love for me to make him this because the Vacation movies were some of his most favorite of the entire year when they came out. Thanks for good thoughts!

The blogger says, "When I told my husband my idea he took it upon himself to hunt down the perfect vehicle. He found it at Wal-Mart but its made by a hobby company, Auto World." There are toy cars in many stores with a children's toy department. Thrift stores or antique shops are also a good bet. An online search for an old station wagon toy car would probably bring up several options as well. Good luck! - Krista, Editor

A yearly Christmas tradition in my family. My dad is going to love this ornament!

This is such a fantastic, fun idea! My family and I watch Christmas Vacation every year, so I'll definitely need to make one of these.
