Eh, probably should have just asked about the shooting brakes. I rather like them...

Hmmmmm......I'll be one of the first to swallow my embarrassment and pride and admit that I forgot what I used to know from reading Road And Track and Sports Car Graphics back in the 60s when some of the classic writers were still around.

I could Google it I suppose, but.....

But I'm afraid my mind is shot on shooting brakes, as much as I hate to admit it

I should add that I believe that it's a Brit term; and having owned an Austin Healey 100-6 and an MGB AND two Brit bikes. I.......gads it's embarrassing

Dang MJS, I'm jealous if that is all true, I'm a big 60's muscle car fan. Hope to some day own a late 60's Camaro RS/SS or if my friend will sell me his 69 Vette 427 Convertible, I'd take that also...

It is a British term. I just hate the term "station wagon."

"Sportswagon" is acceptable when referring to Volvos.

Yeah Station Wagon reminds me of Chevy Chase Vacation movies. Although that first Pinto Wagon I had with simulated wood exterior had a kick ass stereo system in it

There you go Ken - I don't own a wagon - the Forester is a small SUV. A necessary evil for hauling 4 month old boys and all of their stuff around. Well, I guess I don't care if some people call it a wagon - it still is fun to drive - Even though my wife wouldn't let me get the turbo. I felt that if I had the turbo and could blow 3 series Beamers off the line my manhood would be redeemed somehow (although with the price of gas now, I'm glad we don't need premium)

Oh....Ok;.... I'll raise my hand now

I have a small car.(A Jeep Wrangler is "Short" if not "Light" so I think it qualifies)and a "Shooting Brake" as well.

Strangely enough; I still tend to use the old "Station Wagon" term(along with the vision of "Picking up folks and baggage at the railway station" in the 40s or early 50s. Like in a "Popular Mechanix" story of the era.)


........is that cool or what.....?

Yeah, the Turbo's fun, but oi, the premium gas. Believe it or not, our Civic wants premium as well, other wise it knocks like a sumbitch. Grr...

Used to be able to get gas at the airport.....once
