      The moment of realization that Clark Griswold has when he knows that he’s just not going to be getting the Sportwagon that he wanted is one that’s all to familiar to the car enthusiasts who find themselves becoming parents, too. Have a kid or two, and suddenly it’s simply expected of you to ditch the fun-to-drive car that you love and park the modern Wagon Queen, a minivan, in the driveway instead.

      I'd rock that all day, every day. That makes the B6 look beautiful!

      Looks good! I like the wheels too. However I would have kept some black pieces on the front (i.e. grills) it seems too even, needing contrast....

      Well done though

      Love the Motorsport wheels. I want a white set for my wagon.

      for the car

      for the bike--needs a nicer bike to be up there, like a Bionicon, Kastle, or Rottwild--but then again, I'm a bike snob

      Yep, no resemblance to the movie car.

      Nice build.

      I've seen this wagon in person, it looks fantastic!

      We've also shot picts for a recent swedespeed project wagon at the same location.

      AWESOME job! love it. now if you can just go talk to the corp folks in the other office area to bring over the 2012 passat wagon life would be better!!

      makes me want a wagon again...nice and clean. But yeah..that bike needs to be upgraded to at least something with disc brakes.

      very nice - I also have a granite green wagon on H&R Touring kit. I'd love to put a manual box in it but most people say it's near impossible. Helps to have good access to VW's parts bin!
