I think it be a one off Aussie Pete special.

You can sort of build your own anyway, by chucking an XR8-like kit on a modded V8 Forte wagon. I've seen Commodore SS wagons done this way.

I agree for most of us that will end up bringing up the family & having to get a larger "Family Wagon" an XR Wagon would be a good seller, More to the point easier to persuade the missus

There's an XR lookalike wagon advertised in the Melbourne Trading Post this week - certainly looks a bit different...

Have a look at:

well i love XR wagons, and when i win the lotto i will get one.

so i have two chances, buckleys and none lol

but i love wagons, i saw a standard white EF wagon at the 7-11 the other night, it had thin 5 spoke 17 (or 18"?) wheels, and it was slammed on its guts and it looked 'tha sh!t" (that means good)

i wanted to talk to the bloke but i was on the way out of the carpark and i didnt want to look like a psycho....
