For us So Calers snow's a big deal. Here are some pics of my drive up to Big Bear.

Can anyone guess what type of car I am driving by the interior?

1000 points to the person that does (when the point system comes back online..hehe)

Mr.Dave
Maybe an S4? Just my guess... cause I'm not sure if people are that good that they can guess by looking at a windsheild and one wiper blade.

Well it's obviously too high for an S4. So you'd figure it'd be an SUV...

then you gotta think what SUV's come in that color (hood) and what SUV is ugly enough to have practically no hood and it being curved downwards...

Mr.Dave
Thought it was an SUV, it does sit higher than a car. Now that you've mentioned it's ugly and it doesn't ride as higher as say a Chevy Subarban or Ford Explorer (and I don't think those are ugly at all), I'm gonna have to say... Aztek?

I honestly don't think any car that I'd be borrowing (basically, if I know the person owning the SUV) would have ever considered an Aztek.

Would any of you guys let your family get an Aztek? Of all the wagons, trucks, vans out there? NO WAY! :fro:

No way! I'd buy a fucking minivan before I'd buy an Aztek!!!

Mr.Dave
Well, you called it ugly. That's what I first think of.

That's funny, I normally think of Bea Arthur!

Mr.Dave
Or Liza Minelli.

mustangdriver
Or Liza Minelli.

Do you watch "Arrested Development" on Fox?

Mr.Dave
Nope, what is it?

mustangdriver
Nope, what is it?

Awesome show, I think it's done by Ron Howard, he's the narrarator too. It's got a hell of a cast including the two guys from Mr. Show on HBO (you are a fan if I recall).

Liza has been making some really funny guest appearances, that's what made me think of it.

Did you notice how I emphasized wagon before truck or SUV? I'm a awd wagon fan, volvo, audi, subie, whatever. I think they're great and are much better cars for most people.

You don't know how many H2s I saw driving that day up to the slopes. They look awesome, I love SUVs, but it's obvious most people don't need them. A nice a4 avant or a volvo wagon would suit them just fine...and they'd be less likely to give me a ding on the rear door of my car, sit on my bumper while parking, etc. Better for all.

I couldn't agree more. I think we'll replace the Jetta with an A4/A6 Avant or maybe an AllRoad.

Mr.Dave
Hell yeah... wagons aren't the shitboxes of the 80s anymore. I'm really liking the styling nowadays.

maybe I'm biased, but I think audiwagons (especially the allroad) look amazing. If you rarely board or ski, or you don't have enough snow...a4/a6 avant all the way. Nice sleek looking wagon.

If you want it to get dirty...no other wagon but the allroad. I love it. They come in the 4.2 as well now, so that's a bonus. And then there's so much of an aftermarket too, from custom winter mats to full blown power upgrades.

Yeah, we wouldn't need the snowpower too often. And when we head to the mountains we normally caravan in a few friend SUVs. I will definitely consider the AllRoad though.

For me, Audi is one of the only companies producing decent looking wagons!

Jeez, I never thought I would see the day where someone would admit to driving an Aztec! Not big on wagons, dont really have much use for one. If I ever decided I was going to go boarding every day I would buy a small truck.

When did someone admit to driving an Aztek? :eek:

And I love wagons because I'm a car guy. Looking at the alternative, what else can carry 5 people and a bunch of crap? There are a few alternatives:

SUV - car guys can appreciate SUVs for the utility but honestly they aren't fun to drive, handle for crap, and suck down gas like crazy.

Minivan - eek, car guys don't drive minivans! They come with a mandatory testicle removal kit. The new Nissan Quest is kinda neat though.

Wagon - drives and performs like a car and holds all your family and all your stuff. That and they look much better!

That's all my opinion though :tp:

I think I would take the WRX Wagon over a lot of cars nowadays. Its very sporty and tough looking and has about 227 hp too I believe.

No wat man, Forester XT is the way to go. :thumbsup:

ksaile
I'd have to guess that the vehicle in the pictures in a Mercedes ML.

I'd have to agree with most of you saying that some of the new wagons are looking killer these days.

A 16 year old girl that I coach has a really nice S6 that I was admiring the other day in the parking lot. She is clueless as to how nice of a car it is though. What a shame.

I second Ksaile's motion that it is an ML. I also get my evidence from your Boxster thread.

It's also cheaper than the WRX sedan.

Yeah it is, kinda wierd considering there is some more sheetmetal on it. I test drove both of them and you really can't tell much of a difference even though the wagon is a little heavier. I would love to have a WRX wagon, mod the hell out of the engine and leave the exterior bone stock. Very nice sleeper.
