Nice. I took my V sedan camping last month and it was not enough room. After that, I decided I needed the wagon. So I traded the 09 in for a 2011 wagon. I love it and I'm sure you do too.

Cool pictures, the blue looks fantastic in the forest.

I bought my Vagon specifically for the ridiculousness of a super-car station wagon. I've since found it's pretty practical vehicle, too. I've hauled pool pumps (3 at once) large RC planes, shelving, paint, and took a two week vacation in it. I bought a Weather-Tech mat on day one, so the carpet underneath is factory fresh.

I haven't been as smitten with a car since I bought my 1991 ZR-1 twenty years ago. As one car mag reviewer put it, "John Wayne in an Armani suit"...

I'll bet that was awesome. I used to drool on those back in the day.

Ive had that feeling a few times now as well. Took a while but the Vagons seem to be gaining a lot of fans in the last few months.

That's impressive, I'd be really hesitant on taking mine over roads like that. But I LOVE the fact that you did it. That's awesome. This weekend I saw a lost dog in my gated community, it got out onto the main road so the gf and I grabbed a leash and jumped in the Vagon and went after it. We eventually got a leash on him, and after a few phone calls we drove him to the vet where he was registered, and his owners came to pick him up. But he had tons of room in the back of the wagon, and he stretched out and lay down for the ride to the vet.

I just love the versatility. I think the V wagon is my favorite out of all the cars I've ever owned. Here's a video I made of the loose dog we found, the bit at the end of the video is the dog in the back of the V, going to the vet. The red husky is my dog Rex.

Awesome pics, brickfrenzy! :) Glad your Wagon helped you have a great camping trip.

On another note, Xaqtly, thank you for sharing your story (and video). This thread definitely demonstrates the Wagon's versatility, as you mentioned. I'm relieved everything worked out, thanks to you all!

Best,
