The car that combines everything cool about 1950’s America cars and rolls them into one vehicle is back. Major improvements have been made to the third model of the famous Retro Wagon, inside and out. The biggest change is the completely redesigned front end.

The Retro Wagon MKII

About the car:
         Looking for a safe, reliable, and stylish new car for the family?
Look no farther than the new Retro Wagon MK III! The Retro Wagon seats 5 passengers and still has lots of trunk space for that family road trip. Plus with the MK III’s new folding rear seats, leave the kid’s behind and now you can fit more stuff than ever before! Not only is the new front end far better looking, it is a full stud shorter, allowing for easier parking downtown.
         And just because the Retro Wagon is a stylish family car, don’t think it is lacking in power. The Imagination V8 engine has plenty of power for passing on those two lane roads, and the engine gets great MPP (Miles Per Push) economy too. Now that the infrastructure is finally in place, the engine uses hydrogen fuel as standard, so it creates zero emissions! Pick up a new Retro Wagon MK III today, and you’ll leave nothing but amazed looks and water in your wake!
         Also be on the lookout for the all new Retro Wagoneer, featuring increased ground clearance and an AWD system. The perfect car for that ski trip up north you’ve been planning to take. Coming soon!

About Retro Motors:
         Founded in 2010 by young inventor Scott Bertaut in Buildington, New Jersey, Retro Motors was able to take off mid-recession thanks to its use of revolutionary engines and by filling a huge gap that had been left in the market. In there never ending quest for improved aerodynamics, the modern car industry had become a wasteland of nearly identical sedans and SUVs.
         Retro Motors vehicles on the other hand, being designed around “the rule of cool,” have little to no aerodynamic characteristics to speak of. Thanks to hyper efficient engines and advanced suspension systems though, speed, handling, and fuel economy are all comparable to that of contemporary vehicles. This has led to great success for Retro Motors, as it turned out there was a huge demand for cars that look like classic American rides of the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s, but with modern performance and safety.
          Retro Motors has also been a major pioneer in the development of hydrogen powered cars. In fact, it was Scott’s breakthroughs in designing such engines, as well as safer methods of storing the gas, that provided the funding for his automotive ventures. Retro Motors doesn’t believe in releasing a new model every year. Instead they release a new “mark,” given in Roman numerals, every few years, with incremental upgrades being released throughout the cycle. These are indicated by a decimal Arabic number placed after the Roman numerals.
“Retro Motors: inspired by the past to bring you the cars of the future!”

With the rear seats down, even this massive 6 stud TV, with axillary speakers, can fit in the back!

The Future:
         One of my future plans has already happened by the time I got around to uploading this. I now have two 8 wide Retro Wagons, though the other is a slight variant: the Retro Wagon MK III RC PF. That’s right; I have an RC Retro Wagon now! I had to gut the whole interior to do it, but it is 100% Power Functions and looks almost completely identical to the normal Retro Wagon besides the battery box (disguised as a car top carrier) sticking partway out the roof. Hopefully I can get it uploaded here soon, I’ve got the pictures, but still need to make a nice video of me driving it around.
         I also plan to make a sedan version of the retro wagon, though I am still working on a name.

Quoting Clayton Marchetti Awesome update to your earlier classic. I like the added tail to the back. The new front grill looks cool. Excellent job!
If you are referring to the middle vertical fin, it's actually been there since the MK I. You must just not have noticed it, lol! Thanks for the comment!
