Looking at this question from another point of view... I once owned a Volvo S40 (saloon).  I bloody loved it - brilliant car - but totally pointless from a load-lugging point of view, which makes you wonder why it had the Volvo badge on.  I still hope to own a Volvo V40 2.0T one day.

While I owned it I was asked to move a wheelbarrow and I had the embarrassment of borrowing my then-girlfriend's Fiesta to do so.

..N.ow for the exam question.. what's the difference between an estate, tourer and station wagon?

 

Same car, but British, wants to be European, American?

Just jack it up at the back after driving on the fronts, slip the ramps under the wheels, remove jack, eh voila!

Think the Westminster is the home made Langrish one which has a tailgate from a Yugo if I remember rightly.

Another stillborn one, the Opel Commodore Voyage:

It was shown once, at the 1968 Geneva Salon, then disappeared.

Meanwhile a few clones have been built.

Some estate shite I haven't seen posted;

 

https://img.favcars.com/volkswagen/passa...

 

Pisshat B3 VR6, apparently. Looks mega

 

 

...but unfortunately possessing such a glass jaw for an estate car of its size that it beggars belief:  the rear suspension turrets.
rtrim2.jpg

 

A car of this size should be able to move furniture that is only slightly narrower than the tailgate opening and as long as the load bed.  It can't.

Not a single convertible estate yet, have a Humber. 4 wheel drive without dual range so bang up to date.

Then again the Morris has 20" rims and six of them.

In Australia, it’s a station wagon, or just wagon for short. If you used any other word you would just get weird looks and be asked “what the hell is that?”.
