Ahh...the Thursday Twister. Like a bowl of warm honey laced with razor blades and insecticide, the Thursday Twister attracts DT's automotive savants with its sweet aroma...and then consumes them in a slow and agonizing death of one thousand cuts. It is a good thing too -- otherwise these wild kids would be rioting in the streets of Ferguson (or Baghdad). Today, the quiz is to find all of the 2-door wagons for sale in the North American market between 1960 and 2015.
First, a few words on the difference between a wagon and a hatchback (because we aren't looking for hatchbacks). A hatchback has a rear D-pillar that is canted over at a severe angle, while the wagon is much more upright. Take a look at the picture of the Focus hatch vs Focus wagon overlay below.
The Focus ZXW wagon is okay; the ZX3 hatch is not.
BMW 5-series GT abomination = hatch. BMW 5-series Touring = Wagon.
VW Golf/GTI = hatch. VW Jetta SportWagen = Wagon.
Now the tricky ones -- shooting brakes, Volvo 1800ES, BMW clownshoe -- those things... for the purpose of this competition, I'm going to say that they qualify as 2-door wagons because I love em.
Standard contest rules are as follows:
1. Only one car per comment (be sure to hit the refresh button on your
browser before you post in case someone else has posted since you loaded
the page). Do not nest the replies, just reply to the main post -- if
you reply to someone elses comment it should be in reference to his
comment and not a pop-up headlight submission.
2. You can post again, but only after someone else posts another car.
3. The contest will end in 24 hours.
4. One submission per generation of car.
5. Each car must be a running/driving car (no clay model prototypes) and
at least two must have been built of that particular car (no one-offs).
6. No anonymous submissions -- pick a name with the Name/URL dropdown.
