We’ve been thinking about station wagons a lot lately because we picked up a rough 1994 Volkswagen Passat Variant (pictured below) a few days ago. Although crossovers are slowly becoming the de-facto family vehicle, up until not too long ago folks who wanted to comfortably take their family on a long trip bought a station wagon. Consequently, during the 1970s and 1980s most automakers offered at least one station wagon, but some companies missed the boat entirely.
What classic car(s) do you think should have been turned into a wagon? We’re talking regular four-door wagons, not two-door shooting brakes. One that immediately comes to mind is the original BMW 5 Series – it would have likely been the best-handling wagon on the market by a long shot. The Saab 900 would have made a great wagon, too.
