Why buy a new SUV when you could rock one of these classics on the rocks?
Practically everyone these days owns a crossover or an SUV—that doesn't necessarily make them uncool, just very common. Want to stand out from the crowd? Go for a classic 4x4 from a time when most Americans were driving cars, not trucks and SUVs. These vintage off-roaders hail from eras when something tall and wagon shaped was expected to have actual four-wheel-drive capability, not merely an adventurous image.
There's rich variety available, too. We gathered this list of 20 old-style 4WD vehicles that are tough enough to get dirty and also offer the just-right spike of nostalgia that makes every mundane trip to the corner grocery store fun in a way modern SUVs just can't match (excepting, of course, the Jeep Wrangler).
