    Actually quite a few 504 wagons still trundling around the developing world as taxis, Places like Tunisia and other African countries have kept them running for a long time.
    I think Nigeria only stopped making them in 2006!

    Blakebird's write up is the only substantive mention of this vehicle in the forum, and his is a 2019. Are those significantly different? What prices did he see for 2018s?

    Are there any other TourX owners that'd like to chime in? What prices are they seeing? Do we think they'll fall further? Answers to these questions and more are the benefits of continuing the discussion about a relatively unknown station wagon in ADV's only station wagon thread.

    Do you have a Tour X, thumpism? Or are you just helpfully moderating the question..?

    I don't have one. Minivan, a big van, and a VW camper van, although I have owned wagons and like them. I'm unlikely to buy a new vehicle with the time I have left but the Tour X is attractive. My search string turned up three pages of hits (most unread by me) with many of them in the Asshole Parking thread, of all places. Maybe that says something about Buick drivers.

    You could always start a thread asking for input. I'm sure you'd get lots of feedback.

    Ive had a few Javelin SST(s) but was not aware they used the SST brand on the Rebels until now. I cant make out if that is also their target/bulls-eye badge on the rear also. looks like maybe or perhaps its just a side marker light.

    nice wagon but a javelin would be more fun there for sure.
