    When I met her she was driving a Nissan 4x2 truck with manual tranny and non-assisted steering. :D

    Hey! My wife had one of those too.

    When we married, we *both* had mid-90s Nissan pickups. :lol3

    I miss that thing. We sold it to my dad, who gave it to a guy to use as his farm truck--it was rusting away. :cry

    How big is your dog? :D

    We have two adults, one pre-schooler in a car seat, and two dogs. The car seat goes in the rear-middle, the small dog on either side, the big dog in the back, and our bags wherever we can fit them. It's no minivan but it's roomy enough and a lot more fun to drive everyday.

    I work with a guy who has a sweet one of those. Next time he drives it in, I'll snap some pics. He rides a Harley and, I'm embarassed to say, actually rides more than I do, rain or shine. (Then again, if I had a '62 Impala SS wagon as my "daily driver," I'd ride more often, too. :lol3 )

    Finally. Sorry for the crappy indoor iPhone pics.

    Dog is medium size.
    Problem is that we have one 9mnth and one yet to be born, coming in july:1drink With all the stuff infants require, I think I am leaning towards the larger Taurus X.

    I saw one of these outside the Silver and Gold Pawn Shop in Vegas over the weekend. Maybe not a real wagon, but by Porsche standards, pretty damn close. 505hp with a twin turbo; AWD. Pretty fucking badass.

    All yours (!) for under $140k.:wink:

    You don't want a peugeot diesel with the 4wd. Trust me on this- I love pugs, and I had a 505 turbo diesel station wagon. Pretty underpowered by today's standards. I actually thought their 4 cyl gas engine was a nice unit, I had one of those too. And they make a turbo. . . . great car, hard to find.

    I've seen one or two of the Dangel 505s for sale in the states. Usually in poor condition. God those were great station wagons.

    I disagree. That is a CUV which in my opinion is another name for a wagon. Hell it is a big car, on a car platform! It is not a truck. The 2011 Ford Explorer is going to be released next week I think and I am willing to argue that it should be considered a wagon instead of a SUV as it too will be built on a car platform.
