Can I have your opinions about what the sentence below means.
We flew station wagon.
Thanks a lot.
Please tell me if there are any grammatical errors in my post.
I'll bet the writer is talking about traveling somewhere and means it as a joke! The point is they didn't fly at all; they drove somewhere (probably somewhere far enough away that most people—perhaps more affluent people—would fly). In that context, it's a great line.We flew station wagon.
I'm stealing it.
P.S. Of course, in my case I'd have to change it to "We flew Studebaker." Hmm...I don't know. Just doesn't have the same ring to it.

That's the way I read it too.
There's a German expression to use if you know that travelling to a certain country is just out of your budget.............. then you can say, "The only way I'm ever going to get to Greece/Thailand or whatever, is with my finger on a map!"
