5 stars because it was a huge part of the series, from the 1st to the last episode.

The series is not about the car, and the car is not so famous (I think)

Actually , I think I was wrong, it's a 1971 not a '69.

Is this the car that the characters are singing in during the opening credits?

I even think 4 stars is overrated, it is used now and then by some characters, but not that often...a lot of episodes are just inside the house...

I agree, the car is used some, but its’ not used in every episode.

I will stay on 4 stars.. same I gave for example to Devons red Mercedes SL (in Knight Rider) - it is also not used in every episode, but it is used by a character in pretty much of them.

Anyway in 1.12 confirmed - 1969 tan Oldsmobile station wagon

For the series the 4 stars depends on the series, there is no rule. For some ones it means that the car is used all the time in the episode for which it is listed, in others it just means that the car often comes back in the series.

I saw this episode tonight in which Eric says "Did you know that the bench seat of a Vista Cruiser is the same size of that in a full-size Pontiac Catalina?"

This definitely deserves four stars, the car itself was virtually a character.

Crossroads - as the "Moderator East" (co-president) of the GM Skywagon Club, and having owned three 1969 Vista Cruisers myself since 1982, I can say without any doubt that the car used in "That '70s Show" is definitely a '69.

I would have to agree with tv_boy that this car was itself a minor character, and probably the car that had the biggest profile of any TV show car other than KITT ("Knight Rider"), the General Lee ("The Dukes of Hazzard") or the fictional 1928 Porter in "My Mother The Car".

Although that Vista Cruiser didn't appear in every episode, it appeared in many episodes, including the first and the last episodes, and it was a large part of the plot in several episodes.

When the show ended, Wilmer Valderrama ("Fez") bought the car for $500 US.

Yeah, it's not worth more than 500 dollars. You can tell by the pictures that it's in pretty rough shape, it's got several dents and rust.

Did they only have one wagon throughout the run of the show?

If it was only ever used in studio then chances are the engine, fuel tank etc were removed for safety reasons so it may just have been a partly stripped shell.
Depends if it was ever driven on set rather than just pushed or towed into scenes.

Yes, they only had one wagon throughout the show. I have no idea if it was a complete car or not..
