The old 505 was unusual in that the second set of seats were a bit higher up (I don't know if any other cars are like that), any rate I remember travelling in the back of a 505 wagon aged 13ish and being able to see over the front passengers' heads.

Fun fact: all the bits fit in any Montego Estate, but only the factory 7 seaters had a laminated rear screen.

Quote

 

Brilliant... late in for lunch I fired up an off-brand pot noodle and while carrying it to the lounge successfully spilled it all over myself, burned the piss out of my hand, soaked my phone with the juice, soaked a load of expense receipts I was also carrying and it hit the hall floor and just fucking exploded....it was literally dripping from the ceiling in my newly decorated hallway. The obvious and considered reaction was to throw an immediate, massive paddy and boot the fucker down the hall while screaming, which has made the whole scenario about 18 times worse.

I have owned 2 estates, this one which has already featured:

And this one:

Both of which were pretty fucking cool and are both still alive, which is good going for a car that's been owned by me.

For pure space it’s gotta be a 900 series ovlov or an omega I reckon . Saab 9-5 pretty close tho .
I rate the vectra b estate tho

If you happen to be around Plymouth there is a Mitsi Sigma Estate if you can spot it have a good look at its loadspace , over 1200mm between the arches and 1800mm flat length . also if you spot it try and speak to the driver and put him in touch with me . 500tops spotted it about a year ago and not seen it since .msg-71-0-82255600-1499106435.jpg msg-71-0-54377400-1499106448.jpg
Apparently near Lidl's so possible giffer owned !

They might not be up there with the Volvo on loadspace but they have a neat seat folding system with a completely flat floor.

This was the best pic I could find. Note also the rubbing strips to protect the fully carpeted interior.

How many other estates have walnut cappings right to the back of the car? Quality.

Pipped to the post by 7 mins

 

Yup Triumph 2000, one of many estates my parents owned during the 80s but definitely a class above the Cortina Mk2 and 3 which went before

 

Bottle green, like this one, automatic.

 

Triumph%202000%20MkI%20SW%20front.jpg

 

On the Cortinas, I know the Mk 2 estate (light blue, ULA ----F) got pinched, and the orange with vinyl roof Mk 3 estate just fell apart because 70s Ford.

 

I'm racking my brains to remember what other estates they had, but seem to recall a Peugeot at some stage

I would like to nominate the original Volvo V40 on the basis of its "mongrel-ness".  Take a Mitsubishi hatchback, turn it into an estate, add some Renault engines, or perhaps Mitsubishi ones, make sure that Ford has a go at redesigning it during its life, sell it as a Volvo, ensure that although it is an estate there isn't that much space in the boot and voila, the perfect product.  I had two, a petrol and a diesel, and they were both surprisingly good, given their mixed up parentage.

The Squire Wagon.....

 

Not necessarily a Ford with battens.   I mean this. 

 

img_20180106_145236127199303.jpg  

 

B Series Powah and Nuclear Survival. 

 

Proper tailgate AND  a wheel locker.  

 

TWO filler caps.  

 

Politically correct too....Traveller.   Not like Austin Gipsy.

Both properly shite; interests me how similar they are, a slight curve here a nip there and one looks good and it's not the Allagro. The sweeping curve at the C post of the Allagro ought to look good, that and the treatment of the tailgate top edge.
