Thursday Twister: 7 Passenger Wagon

Time for another edition of DT's Thursday Twister, the quiz show that is identical to the The Price Is Right except no host hitting on a model that is 100 years his junior or trying to spay your pet with a superscope microphone.  Today, the quiz is to find all of the 7+ passenger wagons for sale in the North American market between 1960 and 2015.


An easy one is the 1952-1978 Saab 95 wagon; it was only available as a 7-passenger oddity. You can find this 1971 on Saabnet for $15,500 or this 1966 Saab 95 offered for $1995 via craigslist.

This isn't a search for minivans, but for wagons, hatchbacks, or sedans, that have room for 7 or more passengers, usually via folding seats in the back. 

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.  (Rule 2 Abrogated for the summer.)

3. The contest will end in on Sunday,  June 28th, 2015.

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.

Ready....Set...Wagon!

  1. All of the 8/9-passenger Ford wagons in that range, I'll settle for the '60-64 Country Sedan:

    This one looks to be a 6-passenger but the only difference was the rear load-floor panels:

  2. All Volvo wagons had a 3rd seat option. The one pictured below is a 1998 V90

    2. Achman -- just get rid of the spaces in the [ img ] and [ /img ] portion of your post. And link to an image instead of the html. Right click on an image and select "copy image location" and then right click "paste" into the comment box later. Surround the image URL with the left bracket, img, right bracket things and you are good to go. -Vince

  16. For the summer, I vote that we get rid of Rule #2. The Twister lately has been deader than a door nail and I'm pretty sure door nails are extremely dead. If we don't, we're going to miss out on wonderful beasties like the Pontiac Stageway Airporter. That would be a downright dirty shame.

  50. Since I'm playing this Twister all by myself, this will be my last image posted. Let me know if you'd like to see a picture of the third row of any of the future wagons I post. Who knew there was so little wagon love amongst DTers? Edsel Bermuda...

    1. I don't like playing with myself, a person could go blind doing that and my eyesight ain't so hot as it is. So I stopped posting pictures and just listed the 7-passenger(ish) wagons that came to mind. For your viewing pleasure and pain...

      [img]http://i.imgur.com/a7SKzOM.jpg?3[/img]

      I gotta admit, I've actually kicked around buying one of these. My Dad had a new Mercury Sable (sedan) that I thought was utter crap. But they're so very cheap and the 200 hp Duratec has some appeal. Oh, who am I kidding? I'd buy another turbocharged Volvo wagon before I'd buy one of these.

    2. Pilot = not wagon. Arguable I know, but it crossed over into crossover land when they handed this guy the design job:
