There is no doubt that the 60s were one of the most aesthetically pleasing eras in human history. From clothing and music to technology, everything looked like it came straight from a movie. Even now, many of us enjoy having a look at vintage photos and imagining what life was like more than 50 years ago.
One of the iconic creations from 60s was the station wagon – a car that was able to fit the entire family and looked more like a limo than your ordinary car. Also, nobody had to wear seatbelts!

Scroll down to see what life was like when you were able to fit a kitchen in your car!

The Coleman stove and percolator bring back memories. You'd certainly have to clean up after dinner before you went to bed!

This picture made me feel nostalgic pain in the heart. I do not even know why.

Not a seat-belt in sight. Look at all of us "projectile children"!

Totally unrealistic. No one's thrown up because of motion sickness and the kids aren't killing each other.

They were ideal if you had a large family (7 in my family).

Was this one of the models on which you could swing the tailgate to the side OR down? I remember thinking that was like magic!

That isn’t a station wago though, it’s a pick-up truck.

Something Special: A Wartburg Camping Wagon - Made In The Gdr.

Something Special: A Wartburg Camping Wagon - Made In The Gdr.

As a person living in a former communist country, I can state (without being afraid of making a false statement) that people in the GDR did not do a lot of "camping" trips. Despite the name, the German Democratic Republic was anything but democratic, as its people were under a twofold dictatorship: the Soviet influence and the GDR leaders (that were no more than dictators, ruling with an iron fist called the STASI). For the regular GDR citizen, buying an automobile meant applying for it, getting their name on a waiting list (even that was difficult and required being "connected"), paying for it and then waiting between 5 and 13 years for an automobile such as a Trabant or a Wartburg. The "camping Limousine" was most likely manufactured in no more than 1000 units. America had it great since the '50s, Eastern Europe... not so much.

Yeah, let's put the kids in the back where it's safer.
