First car memories were in the way back of a 1970 hunter green Plymouth Belvedere.  An nearly stole 3rd base with Fiona in the back of said Plymouth in the early 80's, and it would've been a stand up triple had her mom not come looking for her.  Wagons are damned practical.

Fast forward to 2015, I had a few days to kill, found an 02 Audi S6 wagon with 60K miles on a trade in at a dealer in Colorado Springs.  Jumped a one way flight from Sacramento.  Drove the car for nearly an hour when at a stop sign, the transmission slipped. Boo.  Their Achilles heel.  I was planning to 6 speed swap t eventually, but not from day one.  Plan "B": Got a sweet deal on a 09 A4 and drove it back through a blizzard. 

Anyway, much love for this 4.2 liter V8 goodness...and the timing BELT is in the front.   Pretty easy job (once you remove the bumper).

 

 

Ooooof. Your Audi makes my pants tight.

Nice

 yes

I know I posted this, but I don't think I posted it on this thread. Spotted in the parking lot at work recently.

I heard it before I saw it. Quite the chop at idle.

'55s in all forms look SO MUCH better than '57s.  I don't know why the '57 is the one everybody loses their E36 M3 over.

Given a very large blank check, I wouldn't have either.

If that thing was a diesel with a 3 on the tree, I think 10% of GRM's readership would experience The Rapture.

That would be 4 on that tree. Plus reverse if you can find it.

Just put my TSX Wagon up for sale. First time in 25 years, will be without a wagon.

It's coming to the US! I have been saving since I first saw the RS2, and now it's finally here. I hope my $12.93 will be enough for a down payment.

Friend of mine traded his 3 year old Accord for a Buick Regal.  2.0 turbo hatchback, nice but I would opt for the wagon.

Saw one in a dark red and it was pretty sharp.

That is a really custom Amazon, it is missing the rear doors. The last two door wagon Volvo built was the Duett. Rear camber suggests that it has IRS too.
