    For the wife (haven't got her opinion yet!) Don't know much about them. I like the look, when lowered some, with nice rims. Anyone familiar with them? Know of one rust free, at a good price?

    I can't speak much about the look or the driveability, but, I can say with absolute certainty that wagons (and by proxy SUVs) almost always have the best available space to bring out the best smooth and deep sound in a subwoofer.

    Another reason to keep looking for one!

    If your wife doesn't like the Cressida wagon, how about a Corolla wagon or Corona Wagon? All Wagons are pretty neat.

    Well she apparently "doesn't like station wagons". Not sure what I was thinking when I married her. We should have had that talk first! With a 74 Celica and my pickup, not sure I will convince her of another toy for me (which the Cressida would have been). We'll see. I will work on her.

    That would be a sweet ride.

    I love wagons and my wife does too (she DDs a sorta wagon - Land Cruiser) but I doubt I could ever get her to drive anything older than 15yrs so good luck getting that idea sold to yours

    Mine'd make me buy her the new Corolla iM or better yet the Lexus CT200h.....actually I think I'd drive the piss out of either one, I always drive the Prius like I stole it

    Having car conversations with the wife is always difficult. On Friday I told her I'm looking at maybe trading one of my trucks toward getting a good condition Toyota Stout and she just rolled her eyes.

    I like the idea of a station wagon; it's one body style I still don't own (I also like El Caminos). But, I don't like four doors. Unfortunately, AFAIK, Japanese makers only made wagons with four doors. So, that means I'd have to get a domestic, either a Pinto wagon or Vega wagon. If I were to get one of those it would be the Panel Wagon version.

    I missed a really sweet Vega Panel Wagon a few months ago; it was a "survivor". All original paint and interior and in fairly good condition. It sold within a week of being listed while I was debating whether or not to buy it. Now, it's just going to become someone's V-8 Vega project... :(
