IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER: </br> It’s Wagon Appreciation Time

It’s the start of another month, which means it’s time to announce our next upcoming theme here on Speedhunters. Okay, so the title might’ve already given it away; we’re going to be running a Wagon Week towards the end of February and we’re pretty damn excited about it. We’re especially excited because we know exactly how much you guys love station wagons. How do we know this, you ask?

Some of our most popular feature cars here on Speedhunters have been of the estate variety, such as this beautifully pieced together E91 ‘M3′ Touring we featured last year. As part of our upcoming Wagon Week, we’re going to be creating a Wagon-themed Readers’ Rides feature, so whether you’ve got an old grumbling V8 cruiser, a classy European estate or a big-power, race-ready wagon track weapon, we want to see your elongated automobiles and what you’ve done to them!

Naturally, there are bound to be a few of you sitting there quietly thinking to yourselves, wagons are just way uncool. But if any website out there could convince you otherwise, it’s definitely going to be us. That might be a bit of a bold statement, but we’ve come across some incredibly cool wagons in our time – wagons of all genres and all styles from all corners of the globe. Drift-spec, SR20-powered Corona wagon from New Zealand, anyone?

Or what about a daily driven, track-ready 2JZ-powered Volvo 245 from Sweden? Cool wagons don’t always have to resemble the car your mum used to drive you to school in every day when you were a kid, either. These days, wagons can look and perform pretty much any way you want them to…

Want the power and luxury of a supercar but want to take the family along with you for the ride? Perhaps the ABT RS6-R is more your cup of tea. Because who doesn’t need a business estate with over 700 horsepower, right?

Even a few of our staff here at Speedhunters have their own wagon projects, such as Bryn’s recently RAYS TE37V’d Volvo 245. However, instead of us showing off other people’s wagons, we want to show off your pride and joy.

If you want to take part in this theme, we’d love to hear from you! Here’s what to do:

  • E-mail your submissions to iamthespeedhunter@speedhunters.com with the exact subject line of  ‘Wagon Week Submission’.
  • For this theme, we want you to select 3-6 high resolution images to send to us. Please include a range of different shots if possible. They don’t have to be professional pictures, although higher quality images will be more likely considered for publication.
  • Tell us your name, location and some information about your build or project.
  • Attach the images directly to the email, ensuring your images are a minimum of 1920PX on the longest side. Ideally they should be RESIZED to 1920 x 1280PX.
  • Make sure the image is free of any distracting watermarks. Don’t worry, we will make sure you are properly credited.
  • If you haven’t taken the images yourself, we’ll need to know the name of the photographer (please make sure you have their permission to use the images) to credit them accordingly.
  • Closing date for submissions is February 13th 2015.

Like always, we’re looking forward to seeing what pops up in our IATS inbox!

Whoop whoop Hype wagon inbound!

My opinion about wagons is that they can be considered as a Swiss Army knife of a car, at least for urban car owners because of their ability to both carry four or five people in considerable comfort and carrying each other's goods/stuffs around. It is also a great car for road trips, and for some, good for high-performance driving purpose. By the way, I'd like to see a Nissan Stagea or a Mitsubishi Legnum VR-4 in future topics.

Yay, go wagons. Unfortunately a dying breed with the onslaught on SUV (here is Australia anyway).
Especially so with fast wagons.

4

Love a good barge! Been contemplating an E91 Touring for a while now!

5

12

Its Great to see people so happy about WAGONS! I though I was the only one!

13

Challenge excepted!

14

Personally I love wagons, maybe it's a Kiwi thing? They always get the attention they deserve here. The wagon equivalent is more versatile, cheaper and can look just as good, if not better, if done correctly. I thought that Corona looked familiar! Nzdm, chooice

15

Pretty sure stock is boring for pictures, but I can offer up a seat to one of your guys for One Lap of America in a 2014 Cadillac CTS-V Wagon. Sometimes it's not what you do TO a car, but what to do WITH it.

17

I am so excited for this! Submitted my email now :)

18

Hoping to see some nice Stagea's!!

He's not kidding, it's hugely let down by it's lack of capacity, which
is the main point of an estate/station wagon in the first place.  Not saying I don't like it, but if you're looking for lots of room it probably won't be the car for you.  Depends what you want it for, though :)

45

JonathanLake That's lovely.  How much do you reckon Hot Wheels® have bumped up the value of your car for the present market? ;)

Here is my 86 Subaru GL prior to my girlfriend and I beginning a full restoration of it. Currently we've completed most of the front end and are half way through the interior. Next up is a blueprint rebuild of the original EA82T engine and repainting it after then engine is out (I almost want to keep the patina though).

I like limousines, it is very stylish. The limousine is not only remarkable for the great length but also in the world of luxury inside the car as the mobile property.!
