American BMW Dealers Prioritize Product, Ask for Wagons

BMW had a decent 2019, besting historic rival Mercedes-Benz with 324,826 U.S. deliveries — a 4.4-percent improvement over the previous year. The brand expects more good news in 2020 as new product begins to hit its stride and more models start arriving. While the company currently enjoys an almost even sales breakdown between cars and crossovers, BMW National Dealer Forum […] The post American BMW Dealers Prioritize Product, Ask for Wagons appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Junkyard Find: 1990 Volvo 740 Turbo With Nearly 500,000 Miles

One of the frustrating things about my job looking for interesting discarded vehicles is the fact that most cars and light trucks didn’t start getting six-digit odometers until the 1980s or even the 1990s. I find vehicles that I know must have racked up incredible total mileage figures, but their odometers all turned over (once?

Junkyard Find: 1981 Mercedes-Benz 300TD Wagon

The oldest Mercedes-Benz W123 diesels are getting pretty close to 45 years of age, which means that— finally— they’re wearing out and becoming easy to find in the big self-service car graveyards that I frequent. Most of these proto-E-Classes sold in North America were sedans, but the wagons developed something of a cult following and […] The post Junkyard Find: 1981 Mercedes-Benz 300TD Wagon appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Junkyard Find: 1974 Toyota Corona Station Wagon

Since my first car was a very beige 1969 Toyota Corona sedan and I now own a heavily customized lowrider 1969 Toyota Corona coupe, I’m always on the lookout for Coronas in junkyards. Just prior to a California trip I took a week ago, I received a Row52 notification about a 1974 Corona at an […] The post Junkyard Find: 1974 Toyota Corona Station Wagon appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Junkyard Find: 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser International Series

While traveling to my job as Wise and Fair Chief Justice of the 24 Hours of Lemons Supreme Court at the Minneapolis 500 race in Brainerd last week, I flew in via Fargo, North Dakota. Naturally, I visited a Fargo self-service junkyard before boarding my plane home, and that’s where I found this rusty-but-well-preserved ’88 […] The post Junkyard Find: 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser International Series appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

The 2020 Subaru Outback wants to take you to (and teach you about) the outdoors

Audi Uses Witchcraft to Tease Possibility of Wagons in the West

Late last week, Audi took to social media to tease the possibility of Avant models returning to the United States. Bizarrely, the company adopted the summoning circle meme utilized by young adults as a way to humorously express their deepest desires. While half-heartedly pretending to be a member of the occult online isn’t a new or […] The post Audi Uses Witchcraft to Tease Possibility of Wagons in the West appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Rebirth, or Looming Fizzle? The Station Wagon Had a Pretty Good Year in 2018

In the absolutely superb 1949 war film Twelve O’Clock High, a doctor stationed at a U.S. Army Air Force base in WW2 England uses an interesting comparison when describing a character’s mental breakdown. “Have you ever seen a light bulb burn out? How bright the filament gets right before it breaks?” A similar phenomenon could be […] The post Rebirth, or Looming Fizzle?

The 2019 Kia ProCeed: You’re Never Gonna Get It

When an automaker decides to launch a new station wagon in Europe, it’s usually a pretty safe assumption that we won’t see it in North America. Kia’s new ProCeed, scheduled for a public debut at the Paris Motor Show next month, is the latest example of this relentless phenomenon. Still, while we’re still annoyed we […] The post The 2019 Kia ProCeed: You’re Never Gonna Get It appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Kia Proceeds With Five-door Shooting Brake, Leaves North America Longing

Kia is readying the unveiling of its Proceed for European buyers later this month, taking great strides to ensure it matches the concept version. While the Ceed five-door already exists, the Proceed is a full-blown wagon. However, it’ll probably spend the majority of its time referred to as an “estate car” or “shooting brake,” since […] The post Kia Proceeds With Five-door Shooting Brake, Leaves North America Longing appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Junkyard Find: 1983 Mercury Lynx L Wagon

Before the North American Ford Escort became a Mazda 323/Protegé sibling, the folks in Dearborn masterminded a Mercurized version known as the Lynx. Escort wagons are rare now (though I have shot a couple during my junkyard wanderings), so I did a double-take when I saw this optioned-up ’83 Lynx wagon in a Phoenix self-service […] The post Junkyard Find: 1983 Mercury Lynx L Wagon appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Wagons Ho! What’s Going on With the Station Wagon/Shooting Brake/Estate Car Market?

Ugh, you say. Wagons. A painfully uncool body type you swore off during childhood and haven’t reneged on since.

TV Transport – 1971 Dodge Coronet Custom station wagon

After two trips around the odometer, this original-owner 1971 Dodge Coronet Custom station wagon is still in daily service. Photos by Richard Lentinello. The station wagon left an indelible mark on the souls of many during its heyday. It didn’t matter if you rode to the Little League game in the third row, took the family to the KOA campgrounds for a week or helped Dad haul back stacks of plywood and 2x4s for the new addition–everybody has a story to share. And while most tales tend to involve ...

Long-roof cat: The Jaguar XJS-based Lynx Eventer shooting brake

1984 Jaguar XJS Lynx Eventer. Photos courtesy Bonhams Auctions. Officially, Jaguar didn’t build a station wagon until 2005, when the Ian Callum-designed X-type estate (“Sportwagon” to U.S. buyers) first appeared in dealer showrooms. However, savvy shoppers — with sizable budgets — could have procured a long-roof Jaguar XJS shooting brake, marketed as the Lynx Eventer, as early as 1983. Over 16 production years, just 67 examples (and one prototype) were built, and on May 11, a 1984 Jaguar XJS V1...
