The mention of the pinto pangra reminded of a guy I who knew that brought a pangra wagon to the local car shows. This not his car, but one I found on google.

This one is very similar to the one I learned to drive a manual transmission.

My HS girlfriend had one like that blue one except in State Hospital Bathroom Green. Manual trans, manual everything.

It was my dad's work vehicle and it was manual everything as well. It did have a/c, the pony interior, and a manual height adjusted driver's seat. It was a weird combination of options.

I'm dorking out hard over here. My wife just walked away with a deep frown shaking here head trying politely to say "err, it's interesting.. . .   ."

I am very fortunate that my wife likes cars and racing, but she doesn't always like the "interesting cars" that I appreciate. She did not appreciate this one when I showed it to her.

How did this get Matador wagon overlooked? Has to be the lease attractive wagon ever created. Got carpooled to school in one.

We had a 1966 Pontiac wagon with a 4-on-the-floor. That was a cool car. It's been covered here. Also had a 1969 LTD. But my fave was the 1974 Dodge Coronet wagon that I crashed shortly after getting my license in 1978.

 

 

I've owned many wagons, including the 1991 Audi 200T quattro. But this is one of my faves: 1987 VW Quantum Syncro. Owned three of them. All great cars. Especially fun for their semi-trailing arm rear suspension. Loved to oversteer in the slippery stuff. Took it out to Steamboat Springs for the Winter Driving School with the quattro club. More fun than a man should have.

Spent the last week in Portugal -  soooo many wagons (and awesome hatchbacks and bikes). 
 

I believe this one is an Opel which is the same as the Buick Regal that nobody bought over here

Twelve years into ownership of my Ralliart wagon, it's still a reliable daily and fun to drive. 
 I even left the Miata home and autocrossed it last month, with surprisingly good results.

While the thread started with "modern" wagons thankfully it derailed a bit so I can add my probably favourite wagon, or estate.

The European Ford Granada, I love it. Can decide on a MkI;

or a MkII;

Both are very nice in their own way. Lately I have been leaning towards the 80's styling of the MkII but the early MkI GXL or Ghia interior is really something.

I'd want to build one with the Ford V8 it always deserved. Just give me time and space...

Cool.  My parents had firs a blue MkI sedan, then a red MkII wagon.  The wagon started as a 2.3 Cologne V6, which died when the compressed fiber cam gear disintegrated (not too uncommon) and was replaced with the big block 2.8L sporting an earth pounding 115hp.
