That's too bad. I've always liked those and their Intrepid brotheren.

It would sure catch everyone off guard to build one of those for 300kph runs up the Wangan!
How about that 300M?
To be honest, I like the look of the current Jetta wagon better, but this still looks good.

Whats up with the ad right above that shows an R34 GT-R "Z-Tune" but it isn't actually a proper Z-Tune pictured?

I've gone over that bridge soooooooo many times in the Tokyo Xtreme Racer games and watching you take the same C1 route in real life almost brought a tear to my eye. Thank you so much for posting this. I honestly have played through one of those games probably once every couple of years for the past decade. To me, Tokyo freeway driving > every other street driving. One day I will drive those freeways myself. One day...

I LOVE DAIKOKU FUTO PA!!!! These posts are the ones I look forward to the most on Speedhunters. I love these so much. Thank you Dino for all of the fantastic content you have provided over the years.

You're right! How could I have missed that? Well my week is better now. Thanks shiftyXTI!
Indeed the widebody bits are aftermarket, hence hoping to see one at the D3 Group shop. But nope, just coups and sedans. Nit that there's anything wrong with those, I just like the wagon better :-P
@Wildcardfox Yeah I know there's been a wagon but just no beefed up widebody wagons were at the shop on the particular day Mr. Speedhunter was there. Actually, ever since it came out, the CTS Sportwagon has been probably one of my top 3 favorite wagons. And I am a certified wagon nut!
It saddens me that there isn't any CTS Sportwagons. Even if they aren't V wagons, they are still cool in my book!
I really hope they actually call this a Supra if it does make production. At least with a car of this caliper, in the USA anyway, we shouldn't have to worry about it being under the Scion name.

I would be very content with choosing a 1987 Buick Grand National as my one car.

@greenroadster @inspector_exacto Yeah it has love/hate looks indeed. For me, it's love. I can tell for you it's hate and thats okay. Once Buick releases the Regal GS Wagon, that will take the top spot for me. I love station wagons in general. More than I probably should.

I've been obsessing over the Cadillac CTS-V Sportwagon for a while now. 556HP supercharged Corvette V8, 6spd manual, and rear wheel drive in a station wagon! Any of you ever see "Hit and Run"?

I say it's about speed and handling. If it can get to triple digit speeds (in MPH) in the time it takes any other normal car to get to half that, and it's built to go around a corner at insane rates of speed while holding it's composure, then it's a supercar.

I really love the article and the subject matter, but... I'm a little disappointed with the desktop selection. I really wanted either that 2000GT or F40 on my desktop!

Some wicked cars here. Not my style, but I still have mad respect for them and for the guys who built them.

I don't think I'll ever grow to like the headlights. Just like the lights on the Ferrari 458, I was never crazy about them. The rest of the car though... wow

I lean towards function over form. But I find that the form that takes shape from a car built for function is the best form of all. When form and function meet in the middle (or more towards function), that is when a truly amazing machine has been created and those are the builds I have the most respect for.

Way more captivating than any American parking lots! What about all of those cool cars that are just out of frame sitting next to most of the ones that you shot? This post could have been 3 times as big!
@hanablemoore @inspector_exacto You're right. Safety wouldn't be on our minds at all. Just speed. No matter what it takes.

Hey, isn't that 1889 Mercedes the one that was in Gran Turismo 3? or 4? I forget which one, but one of them had that. When you drove it, your guy wore a leather helmet and big goggles from the era.

Chances are the guys running the junkyard just didn't know what that engine is. They just think "oh, a Toyota engine? You can have it for $XXX.XX". X= very cheap!
