Wagon Wednesday: Euro Wagons of the '90s Wagon Wednesday: Euro Wagons of the '90s

The station wagon is a body style that is increasingly associated with luxury marques and segments in America today, but its roots obviously harken back to the days of rudimentary practicality and outright load-lugging capacity.

Picked this up at a farm/garden from the Ertl/Tomy display. It’s an old Racing Champions casting.

Wagon Wednesday: Camaro edition ... yes, Camaro.  Wagon Wednesday: Camaro edition ... yes, Camaro. 

I spotted this gem in the collection of my buddy’s 2-year old. He found it on one of the beams in their house. It’s a fantastic casting. I hope to find one someday.

Wagon Wednesday: Gone Fishing Wagon Wednesday: Gone Fishing

It’s Wednesday, people. Act like it. And by that I mean go take your 1973 Chevy Caprice wagons and go fishing.

Wagon Wednesday: Road Trip Wagon Wednesday: Road Trip

Just a short post today for Wagon Wednesday - this is the Johnny Lightning Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser as released in the Road Trip Series 3 (2008), which is appropriate, as I am on a road trip of my own.

Wagon Wednesday: Black Teutonic Longroofs Wagon Wednesday: Black Teutonic Longroofs

I’ve been meaning to put these two together ever since I got Matchbox’s E430 from a recent eBay purchase! The Audi may be a sports-oriented performance longroof and the Mercedes a comfort-oriented pragmatic longroof, but together they make about the perfect dream garage!

Let’s just get it out of the way: the ride height on this is, um, high. (Also, in the top pic there, and some of the others, it is not sitting straight on the railing, so it kind of exaggerates the already slightly elevated front. Gasser Vega, anyone?)

In the top image is the diecast display in my bedroom. Until today, it was split between wagons and Cool Classics. However, something important happened on Monday that caused this to change.

(Edit: I’m sleepy and posted this to Oppo instead of LaLD. Excuse the oversight and enjoy a few photos of blue estates.)

Wagon Wednesday - Hot Wheels Classics 1940's Woodie Wagon Wednesday - Hot Wheels Classics 1940's Woodie

Courtesy of R32rennsport, this arrived over the weekend, and I DLMed it today for some pictures. Despite the lack of good light (haven’t seen the sun since Monday), the spectraflame paint is still great and the two-tone wood detail is excellent.

Wagon Wednesday: D-Pillars on Volvos! Wagon Wednesday: D-Pillars on Volvos!

I made the mistake of stepping into a Target again on Saturday. My V50 was clinically low on oil (it’s been leaking, again) and I had removed the left headlight unit to change the bulb so I took my dad’s V70 for a parts run and stopped by Target on my way to Autozone.

Just received it, and what an awesome casting this is. Volvos for life!

(SPECIALIZED) WAGON WEDNESDAY - 1963 CADILLAC AMBULANCE BY MATCHBOX (SPECIALIZED) WAGON WEDNESDAY - 1963 CADILLAC AMBULANCE BY MATCHBOX

I’m kicking myself for not having picked up this casting before last week. This is one cool little ambulance, very nice interior details, the wheels are perfect for it and the exterior details are fantastic, a very nice model from Matchbox.

WAGON WEDNESDAY - VOLVO V60 WAGON WEDNESDAY - VOLVO V60

I got lucky and found this puppy from Matchbox at Target last week. I really dig the color and the tampos, it is a really cool wagon, I never tire of Volvo goodness in die-cast model form!!! Let’s hope Matchbox starts making better castings such as this one.

My MBX hawling has been really slim lately. One of my regular Targets has drastically shrunk the diecast section so there are no MBX singles, just 5-packs. The other one has had year-old stock, but recently they put out maybe a case worth of new stuff. I managed to snag this ambulance and the ‘71 Skyline (if anyone…

With my collection once again at my weekend getaway, here comes a simple picture show of a Woodie Wagon collection dominated by the year 1940.

There’s nothing better than having your vehicle covered in flames to tell people you work in the fire brigade.

If we’re all honest, the CUV is the modern wagon. There’s one in my family fleet, a CX-5 that I love, and I bet a lot of you have one too. Sure, I’d love for it to be a 6 wagon, but I live in America where they’d sell literally dozens of those, such is life.

I loved the detective show Simon & Simon as a kid, even though it was way above my age bracket (I was 8 when it went off the air). What kept me watching it? Rick Simon’s Power Wagon. No joke.
