Station Wagons have a strange appeal to me.

In Sweden we call this kind of car Kombi (Combi) or Herrgårdsvagn (Estate Wagon) :lol:

Don't have many of them but here is one, not the prettiest looking model. Old pic and a model I have had for a while.

I wonder how long we will have to wait for the Jag XF Sportbrake? (note UK spelling of brake not 'ea' which is the French term).

VW Estates were called 'Variants' in the UK so it's interesting to see the description 'Squareback' used in the 'States.

Out of these, the 80's Opel Kadett is my favorite Dcast, and it is not the colour - more the sentimental value and the model looks very well made :)

I would call Lars' Citroen GS a five-door hatchback. The Audi A probably is in the same catagory too. With modern cars the lines are getting blurred.

My first job at the Audi design house, Uedelhoven, in Ingoldstadt, was to push the Allroad prototype from one studio to another half a mile away! It took four of us a tiny girl steering to move the damned thing. It struck me as an A4 Estate that had eaten all the pies!
Then we had to do the same with that hideous little A1/2 thing, that mercifully seems to have disappeared without trace.

Does nobody do any of the old woodies? like Rolls and Alvis Shooting Brakes?

Martin. I think there was a seperate topic for wood bodied estates. As a reprise this a Lea Francis 14HP estate with APA body from 1950. It is a Lansdowne model.
