Okay - I will have a stab at the story!

My thoughts on this were that it the name Station Wagon hasn't always been that. Weren't they like depot hacks or taxi hacks? Used to transporting people to and from the train stations. Idea was to fit lots of luggage and people in comfortably. So for some reason it became a "Station Wagon" as opposed to "Depot Hacks". Something like that anyway! Why I know this story is another matter.

The "Station Wagon" was typically a horse drawn carriage used for parcels and luggage. Later, automobiles were converted by removing the body rear of the driver and adding the bed of a wagon in it's place. Later became known as a "Woodie".

I have loads of dream cars but don't have the ££££££ to buy me a BMW X5.
So I got my current car which was one in my dream car's list. The Pug 307 1.6 brought from new which is two and a half years old now seem to have some minor engine problems, weird symptons and some faulty electronics.

The dream car didn't come in cheap and it didn't really met my expectations.
A crap gearbox
An engine that doesn't like the cold
It needs minor repairs from time to time (tightening up bolts that somehow came loose on the engine)

So dream cars is not always a dream car.

It's a close call between a Turbo Bently Continental and a Aston Martin Vanquish S. However, on the cheaper side of things what i'd really like is a 2006 Range Rover sports edition, dark metallic blue with GOLD rims. However, i'd like 2 'rims' per wheel.....ie, the outer rim spins one way while the 'inner' rim spins the otherway. Anyone seen that b4? I know i havent!
