    and before you go getting all judgmental and shit, it had a bar, a place to nail all the sexy stews you happen across when you are a jet setting spy in the late 60's

    Awesome, one of my buddies inherited a vista cruiser when he got his license.
    Great car to load with teenagers and hit the beach, was pretty fast for a wagon.

    PS.
    Hey guys, you really dont need to quote Mutt's entire picture library to add a comment...

    I like the new WRX, not so much a wagon as a hatchback though.
    265hp and you can haul some shit.

    How about the Dodge Magnum, I think they gave the SRT 425hp?:

    AMG doing an "estate" at all is inherently cool, but you can probably tell from my pics that I have a way different vibe going

    I met a dude at the local Dodge dealer parts counter getting some parts for one of these and we started jawing. Evidently there is a local club that races them around here. Willow Springs, Fontana, etc., etc.... He said it's a hoot racing other morons in station wagons.

    Kinda cool. :thumb

    Thanks
