I Like Station Wagons, I cannot Lie!

I have had several Ford Escort wagons, a Suburaru Legacy and now an older Honda wagon. Any of you Aussies drive one of these Honda Stream's?



But, I hear those will not be coming to the States but maybe next year an Accord version - more of a crossover. But, any word on these?



I really like the economical and aestetic looks to the Stream. Does that mean I have to move to Australia?

You know what they say about a man who likes Station Wagons right?

Different decade, different car (850)


I like the older volvos though:



Always preferred the lines of the 1800 coupe, despite my weakness for wagons.

This was ours.



1967 Country Sedan, 289 3-speed manual with an overdrive. We drove that thing all over the west on camping trips when the kids were little. It was a great cruiser.

Us too! We had a dark blue 67 Ranch Wagon. 289 automatic. I still remember the metallic blue vinyl upholstery.
Back in those unsafe days we spent most of our time in the back, hanging out feet out the windows.

US gets the Crosstour for 2010, which does not look like the photo above at all. For 2011, Honda has confirmed a wagon version of the TSX. No word on drivetrains...
