Before I go buy one is a Honda Fit going to classify as a wagon? 

Eeesh, that's a hard one. I say yes for the sheer utility factor though.

My opinion is irrelevant as I've never competed, much less attended a challenge, but to me a Fit is 100% a hatchback and 0% a wagon. Maybe we should ask Nick for a final ruling.

$400 Rambler wagon. Might not be the best race car, I had a 65 Rambler 4 door, darn heavy car. 

With a serious diet and the right power plant it might be fun.

You probably need the 440 to pull that around!

'98 Audi A6 Quattro wagon...

Edit/Update: Sold locally

I have a 1998 Audi A6 Quattro Avant (C4) at my daughter's house in Phoenix that I'm going to sell. It has a 2.8L 6 (12 valve) and auto trans. Not saying it would be simple, but you can swap a 4.2L V8 and 6mt into these: http://forums.quattroworld.com/classifieds-vehicles/msgs/29988.phtml

If there's any interest, I can get current pics and any details you want. I drove it from Oklahoma to Phoenix last summer for a temporary car for my daughter. Clear Oklahoma title. It probably has near 180k miles. Runs and drives well. Reply or send a message if interested.

Anyone close by that can make this thing drivable across country? I’m willing to pay for new brakes and tires above the $2018 budget. Not joking, will fly and drive if someone could prep it for a cross country trip.

Looks pretty nice. Maybe the seats fold flat so you wouldn’t need a tent.

In reply to Justjim75 :

Yes! I've done multiple summers up and down the east coast tenting: it was intense (that never gets old). Also an entire NH winter in a tent, most of one in a yurt and many weeks living out of a kayak on the water.

But I was mostly referencing the change in living/marital status that would occur should I bring another 20yr-old wagon home... 3 is 3 too many for the wife. And I don't think she'll let the toddler and I sleep in the back permanently, although that was the only way to get freshies back in my ski bum days.

Curious about this one.  Your skanky girl cousin doesn't help....

As soon as you said "skanky", I knew which eBay seller it had to be.  This guy has been using these "models" for years; I think he must lure them out the back door of a strip club or something.
