Wow!

Believe the M5 wagon was never offered for sale in the US although some were imported privately. 2011?

Really enjoying the wagons in this thread. I always look at the Caprice/Road Master wagons and think about building a "sleeper". Dream about getting a Facon/Torino wagon and throwing my 460 in too.

Those Subaru XT always have a soft spot for especially since you can get a manual transmission in them.

Currently been driving this Chrysler/Dodge POS quality though I like the looks and how it drives on the highway. The get-up-n-go is fun too.

I have to say this car is better in the snow than the '00 Outback I had given this weighs 4300 lbs and is rear wheel drive bias AWD. Still does not compare to a 4x4 Truck.

Had fun with PD, but removed it. I still kind of liked that look though.


Currently:


Coming home from an enduro:


Alright, I will return to lurking on this website.

No XT since '09. There's a reason I bought mine...I saw the announcement of the '10 redesign of the Outback, and called the dealer right-quick-like, to grab the last 5sp XT he could get his hands on.

the current XT Forester gets 25mpg combined with close to 250 HP. Why they don't offer that in the Outback is bizarre as it's a noticeably under powered wagon and gets about the same MPG as the Forester Turbo.

Funny thing how those "flame surfaced" lines that don't work imho, look fantastic with the touring body. That D pillar makes all the difference.

Freinds brother in law has an e 61 with the n55 and a 6speed manual trans. The kicker of the whole package is the windsheild sticker that states "automatics are for corvettes"
