No love for the CTS-V Sport Wagon? A 6.2-liter, 556-horsepower Corvette V8 but without the cop-magnet status. It will haul ass and your groceries.

A great review from the WSJ:
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142405274870355580457610220298526 8 590.html

"You could attempt to redeem yourself for such an automotive purchase, as you should. The V-Wagon is utterly, cosmically and seismically wrong, a filthy, shameful ogre of torque that bellows and sets alight thatched roofs as it drives by-Caliban with pushrods. You owe God or somebody an apology."

All of the ugly of the FF with none of the AWD

Seriously why can't we innovate in anything but style and very questionable style

I know Chevy announced GDI for 2014, but it still has a 2 valve push rod head

I had a V8 Vega wagon when I was a kid! Mine was a pretty medium blue with a black interior. My buddies and I built several. They're a lot of fun, it a shorts-browning sort of way.

First got laid in a Laguna wagon. Very roomy.


What was roomy - the wagon or your partner?

I love it. I will call it my hurse, I said the other day. Act like the guy from Phantasm. Maybe get a puppet of one of those little monster guys and stick it in the back for people to see.

Ha!  Back on that 140 mph speedometer thread, I posted a pic of our lil gas sipper, 2007 Suzuki Reno.  After some wiki-wiki, I found out the guy that designed it also designed a million other compacts, and also several "supercars" and all kinds of stuff.

Subby is apparently mid-western, old, stupid, all three. "Wagon" aka "estate" aka "5-door" is one of the smartest and prettiest car layouts created, your coal burning backwoods generation notwithstanding.

My dad had one of these Nimitz-class Chevy Caprice Classic wagons.

350 engine with some kind of automatic trans.

I don't think there's a limit to how fast these can go on a downhill highway grade at full power.

Way back when I bought a car from a buddy for $500. It was a Chevy Sprint (dubbed The Poptart). It was some kind of bastard product that had a Suzuki 3 cylinder motor in it. It got 45 miles to the gallon. Drove it for 6 years. Never changed the oil. Never broke down. Put it in the woods a lot. Best car ever! If I ever buy another new car (doubtful). It will be a Suzuki.

Giltric: Nice.

I like how they refer to it as a shooting brake as opposed to a golfing brake as is traditional.

America Fark Yeah!

Can't wait to bless it with my Noveske and Larue stickers.

Maybe a giant BFL in the back window instead.


arfcommer? i thought i was the only one who could tolerate these two political extremes.

On the one hand, I think its a pretty hot mod for the Corvette.

On the other:  I really don't understand the appeal of souped-up station wagons like this or the
Magnum, aside the sheer desire for technological demonstration.

If you want a fast car, get a sports car.

If you want cargo room and comfort, get a wagon or SUV.

/Drives a Toyota Matrix; much prefers cargo room to speed at this point.

ultraholland: anybody got an '87 Crown Vic wagon for sale? I'm totally in the market.


people will laugh but a few years ago i was looking for a CV wagon. my dad had one when i was kid.  it could hold whole sheets of plywood, got excellent mileage for the size, towed everything, hauled everything, and the 302 V8 must have been one of the most reliable engines ever.

You say that as though it is a bad thing. It's both lighter and physically smaller than a much more complicated engine, while making more power. That's bad?

"The result of all this, according to Chevy, is a naturally aspirated engine comparable to some of the top turbo engines on the market. Pulling no punches, Chevy takes aim at BMW. The Bavarians' 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8 produces 400 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque while weighing 503 pounds and standing 29.6 inches high. The new LT1, by contrast, puts down its estimated 450 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque while weighing only 465 pounds and standing just 25.3 inches tall. Advantage Corvette, lighter nose more power to the rear. The extremely compact size, says Lee, allows a low hood line and better visibility."

Mine was a straight-up Impala. 'Course it wasn't so straight after the frame folded.
