I've had a few contenders including a Volvo 240 and a 2 door Astra, but this one was my favourite.

That wee girl just got her first car last month.

My dad had a w124 estate. 300 petrol auto, silver over dark grey with dark blue interior. Felt like a bomb shelter and was a bit rapid when you wanted it to be.

If `best` means estate with bombproof mechanicals, I could mention my just run in 72k Bluey, with its reclining back seats, factory stack system & roof speakers..

I never understood the Ssangyong Rodius - is it an MPV trying to be an estate or a large estate trying to be an MPV

How about the best estate shite NEVER made.

 

I would have loved:

 

Senator Estate (chip-cutter grille model)

Peugeot 605 Estate.

Lexus LS400 Estate.

Rover SD1 Estate (I know, there are one or two about)

Merc S-class W126/W140 estate.

And I recon a Maserati cinqueporte would be an interesting addition to the range.

Nah, man, those were alright.

The 70s 'clamshell' GMs were fucking hopeless in Winter. The rear tyres would kick all kinds of shit up behind the rear bumper,

where it would freeze to a solid block of ice. You were then unable to lower the tailgate unless you swang an axe for half an hour.

The usual guess how I know applies.

I give up... How do you know?

If I was on my computer I was going to post up pictures of a mint California Vista Cruiser that's local to me but, I'm not so you'll just have to trust me that they do exist...

As for my Le Baron wagon... When I say it wasn't great what I mean was that it was fucking awesome... And while it was a strangled emissions friendly* version of the real deal wagons of the 60s and 70s it was still well up to the job. Even if it did try its hardest to kill me in San Francisco by getting the throttle stuck wide open...

Ah, it was merely trying to blend in.

Them San Franciscans don't have accelerator pedals, they have toggle switches.
