It's unfortunate that this conversion was built on the short wheel base platform. It's just wrong.

Shorter doors are less likely to hit things when opened by the kids that are riding back there. Dignitaries won't be riding in the back of a station wagon.

Now it was a hurse, I would agree. LWB is only way to go. The rear passengers don't typically open the doors in those.

From the photographs it looks like the legroom in the back seat is HORRIBLE. A W123 wagon would be much more comfortable. So I disagree. But I'm quite tall and any passenger behind me would want the extra legroom...

If anyone other than a Rugrat wanted to ride in the back of your station wagon.

Then again, kids do like to kick the back of the front seats with their little dirty sneakers. The LWB would help with that.

Nope best diesel is a euro post 80's 300D with the stick shift, manual everything and the type M pump....faster and lighter weight and can actually get out of its own way....many will tell you the car is wayyyyy to heavy for a 4cyl, thus it puts more strain on the engine....euro 300 can easily see 28mpg...i am getting 22 around town...

Be your own person...
DON'T....
