Top 10 Cars of the 2019 East Coast Woodies: Closer to Nature!

Do you know what a woodie is? This is the name given to old cars, especially station wagons, whose bodywork is made in part of pieces of wood. The origins of this practice date back to the beginning of the 20th century, when certain types of vehicles were delivered only with the front portion of the bodywork in place, the rest to be completed by independent body shops.

Today, these cars have become collector's items, with some worth up to more than $100,000. Although most collectors of woodies like to keep their cars in their original condition, many like to transform them into hot rods, particularly among the surfer crowd on the American West Coast.

Since 1974, North American owners of woodies have joined together to form the National Woody Club. And every year, this group, based in the Northeastern U.S., meets on a Saturday morning in August for a little communal ride from the small town of Wells in Maine to the picturesque village of Perkins Cove, a little further south. About fifty of them attended the event this summer. Here are some of the most beautiful examples.
