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.

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.

They remain part of our our automotive landscape, just a vanishingly small part of it. […] The post Wagons Ho!

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...

Four-Links – Vega wagon, Russian car museum, mobile homes, immobile homes

Initially, the Vega was to be released only as a notchback and as a fastback, no wagon. But thanks to one designer’s after-hours work and a fortuitous visit from Ed Cole, the wagon got added to the lineup.

One-of-None, Coachbuilt 1972 Volvo “165” Heads to Auction
