American DOG OWNERAre you looking for an American dog owner, or an American car?
the car can be made anywhere in the world but has to be street-legal for American public roads
Elegance and roominess notwithstanding, the best new car for the money in 1979 would have really been a Toyota truck with a shell on it if you were a bachelor with hunting dogs, German shepherds or something back then. For city-slickness without the Mercedes price tag, the quality-built 1979 wagon would have been a Toyota Cressida wagon or perhaps a Volvo wagon. There was just no getting Detroit big boat size combined with Toyota quality and reliability and the body and interior excellence of European cars like the Benz. I give the '79 Chevy wagon the nod for roominess, style and comfort at a working-class American income budget but for nothing else.
