    Oh boy.... Time to open Pandora's Box.

    I'm a fan of Station Wagons. Purchased new in 1990: Camry LE V6 wagon and new in 1993: Corolla DX wagon. But then wagons became scarce. What to do? If we define a modern "Station Wagon" as a "3 box sedan" that forgoes a fixed back window and trunk lid for a squared-of tail (2 box), then one car maker still makes them.
    My new purchase in 2001: a 2002 Subaru Outback (Legacy sedan ==> Legacy wagon ==> 2.5" raised suspension = Outback wagon). New purchase in 2013: A 2014 Subaru Outback (still a wagon version of the Legacy sedan).

    I know.... Some Subaru folks will insist that it's an SUV because that's what the EPA classifies it as. Either way, they ride and drive like a great car.
    2013 LX AWD (kids college car) Other vehicles past & present: 2014 & 2002 Subaru Outback, 2015 & 2008 Toyota Sienna, 2002 Honda Odyssey EX

    I was talking about the late '80's to mid-'90's or so. There were some gaps. The Corolla wagon is very cool! I did have a corolla in the mid-80's - great car, gave me good service till I got hit by a drunk. Got a Doge Colt, and it got hit by a drunk. Two in a row. Aargh! I would love a Subaru, as long as it had a manual transmission, their automatics are no good. They are otherwise great cars. Toyota brought the wagons back, but Honda didn't, dangit. But they should.

    Now that I've learned my lesson, I'm supremely confident that next time I'll make a different mistake.

    Yeah, Honda dropped the wagon for the tenth generation (current). The ninth generation Civic wagon is pretty cool, with a huge trunk space due to the missing spare wheel well. I did do a test drive but ended up buying something else.

    That actually looks pretty nice. I don't think I've ever seen a Corolla wagon.

    My spare was in the floor, just like the one in my CR-V now. It had automatic seat belts, too - a novel concept. I never could decide if I liked them or not, until the car was gone, and then I missed them.

    What is that photo, a concept car?

    No, it's a production car. Here's a regular pic:
