      After seeing the picture of the red 900 wagon... it actually blows my mind that Saab would not build this to compete with the Volvo wagons of the same time period. Definitely a more attractive Swede! (and I'm a Volvo fan...)... Actually one of the best looking wagons I've ever seen!

      The Ferrari 456 is a huge favorite of mine, loved them when I was a kid... The wagon is like icing on the cake, looks awesome - and serves the 2+2 purpose of the 456 even better, with real room for those 4 people to take that car on an epic trip.

      The S-class, and 7-series actually take to wagonizing quite well. They both look like factory models. Surprisingly the 928 look great too!

      The American muscle cars look too 'mommy mobile' in wagon form... definitely need to be left as the awesome muscle cars they are. That C3 Corvette is absolutely fugly...

      I'd rock the Corrado wagon for the record, despite its view from the rear.

      And the 944 is hot like that...just sayin'

      I would actually go sa far as saying that the Corrado wagon looks better than the original. And that 944 reminds me of the Jaguar from Harold and Maude which is about the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a car IMO.

      Saab was obsessed with convertibles instead of wagons.
