We all remember with high dose of nostalgia those old cars that features wood panels. One of the most loved models was a Wagoneer. This full-size SUV was in production from 1962 to 1991. During these almost three decades, we saw many modifications. This model definitely gained a status of a legend and even nowadays it is very popular, 25 years after the latest model was produced. So many years have passed and there is still high interest for it. Because of that, company decided to revoke this model, and we could see those wood panels once again.
