I'm on my 3rd Volvo V70. All base models. I refer to the car as a station wagon just to see peoples' heads move.

Simon Templer's P1800 and James Bond's DB-5 were both available as wagons. They were called touring editions.

I had a 1977 Toyota Celica GT Liftback; California GT. Square the back end and it would've been a wagon.

Had 3 Saab 9-5 wagons in the family (2002 and 2 x 2005).

The Mazda3 comes in a Touring edition. Looks like a wagon.

The worst of both worlds: Long body of a truck or SUV with the visibility of a car.

I'm looking at a Stinger GTS; the next closest thing to a wagon- AWD with the ability to route 100% of the torque to a rear axle fitted with a mechanical LSD.

This is an interesting topic.

The interesting thing is how most SUVs have "mellowed" and are essentially "slightly taller, slightly tough-looking" wagons. But we call them SUVs or CUVs or whatever. Many aren't even four wheel drive.

Jeep Wagoneer?

Wagons are simply superior to sedans. Once you have one there is no going back. A well sized crossover like the new RAV4 is the new format of wagons with more ground clearance.

All this is why I laughed when people decided to jump off bridges upon reading, "Ford isn't making cars anymore besides the Mustang".

The thing has 4 tires on the ground and a windshield...what's the big deal?

Similarly, if fewer kids damage their brains by NOT playing football then decide in adulthood to watch other things on TV besides football there's no reason to think the world is coming to an end.

As my dear Dad used to say on occasion, "People should stop being stupid".

Flame suit on I suppose.

The Subaru Outback is as close to a wagon as you might get these days.

Now if Subaru would offer fake wood trim sides they would corner the BITOG market.

I've always like Euro wagons. I think VW is bailing out on their wagons in the US entirely which is a shame but if you can't sell them I understand. I am going to try to talk my wife into one but she is wanting an SUV of course.

The KIA Soul is technically labeled a wagon and has sold like crazy, although I'd bet 95% of their owners don't know that.

The Brits refer to my Clubman as an Estate(wagon).

The Buick Regal wagon is similar.
