Dean Martin Makes A Station Wagon Cool

Only Dean Martin could make a station wagon a cool car to have. I loved this 1966 Mercury station wagon, dubbed the "sex wagon," in the first of the Matt Helm spy flicks The Silencers. It has many amenities, including a bar and a bed. It's the perfect mode of transportation for a cool and randy spy like Dino's Matt Helm. I would love to have one of these myself.

Check out out this wonderful article about the car over at the Volo Auto Museum.

Hey pallie DMP. Man, I could never forget that. It's definitely one of the stops as we trek across the country visiting all the Dino sites.
