Blast from the past, part 3: 1976 Rambler Matador station wagon

On August 21, 2008, I was absolutely stunned to see this Rambler Matador wagon parked on Alma Road, St. Kilda East. These Ramblers were assembled in Australia up until 1978, in relatively small numbers. Seeing one of the road today is literally a once in a lifetime event - this is probably the only Rambler I've ever seen in person in Australia, that I can remember. Sadly, being 32 years old at the time, it's condition is quite average - looking very worn and tired. I expect it would have only lasted a few more years after I took this photo before being scrapped or left to rust somewhere.
