Would be better if more than 3 of the cars were available after 1995.

Funny. 6 of the 12 wagons featured were beasts. The other 6 were just notable wagons. This anomaly falls in line with my theory that some people (and when I say people I mean most American men) would only buy a wagon today if it had a beefy engine and a sporty look.

Didn't notice it before, but how would you improve the coloring of the yellow in my DRL's in the picture? In the pic they look like a dull yellow, but in person they are very bright yellow. Just curious as to how you would improve this either when taking the pic, or in photoshop.

We just met up this Monday because both of us had the day off. It was a sorta spur of the moment meet up.

We'll get a larger Audi/VW AcuraZine meet sometime soon.

God that Audi conversion is amazing! I've always loved the B5 Avants, that one is by far my favorite (minus the hood scoop).

Rally's Clubman is something else. He's working on having it lay frame with combination of new custom bags and suspension modifications.

They're airbags, the ride is much smoother than slammed coilovers.

LOVE the A3... I really wanted one for Vancouver, but not only is everything more expensive here... but the people here have a thing for wagons... which means, for the price of a used (low mileage) A3, I could pretty much buy a new one in the US. ugh

I even looked into used Volvo V50s... and they were pretty pricey too

Wait, a Mazda2 is not a wagon. Is it?

And my goodness, do the Germans know how to make a wagon or what?

There's that old argument about five doors = wagon and three doors = hatchback.

Not sure I agree with it though.

IMO, a wagon has four pillars, a hatch has three. Sorry Mazda2, as much as I like you, youre out.
