The real-life Griswold family have taken their name and their travel business to a whole new level when they built themselves a version of the famous “Griswold Family Truckster” from the original Vacation movie starring Chevy Chase. They did such a good job recreating the green and wood paneled station wagon that the car was used in the sequel.
This Thursday night Steve and Lisa Griswold’s story will be shared on Jay Leno’s show Garage Season 3 Thursday Feb. 8 at 10 PM ET on CNBC. Steve said:
