The Alfa Romeo 145 , and the most beautiful of the ALL 156. The rear end of the 159.
And one that we only can dream about the 166 in computer design

Sorry Dr, and once again my excuse, but I was in a hurry to get all the pictures in.
Yes the first ones is very nice and very inspired by the American way of stations cars after WW2.
There was no design culture in Europe around stations cars at that time, we could only copy.
Three is a story around Viotti , he vas a personal friend of Boano. Boanos son Paola made a design for a stations car just after the war. There is no documentation that this is the one he designed, bur a funny thought that youngster could have inspired Viotti.
But looking at the in general , ones grow to like them all. The Bertone , the Zagato 33 al of the has a very high level of personality

Not a problem.
Thanks for posting all the pictures.

Unfortunately, very few Alfa station wagons (with rear window glass) or panel vans (without rear window glass) ever came to the US.

I do not know if the car that looks like a 72-74 GTV made into an estate wagon is a real car, but it would certainly be a nice thing to own

Unfortunately there was only one, and it disappeared many years ago. I do not think it still exists, but ABC/Brianza models has made a hand-made, limited series miniature of it in 1/43rd scale.

I never thought this thread would end up being my current favorite...

Maybe having a kid on the way makes stationwagons seem really attractive?

Having gone through that with kids myself, I have to say one of the finest cars I have owned was the Volvo 740 GLE Wagon we bought new in '86, when my 1st was 2 years old.
It became her car when she turned 16, and was perfect for her until she turned 19, at which point she drove it into the ocean (dont ask). We sold it with 280K miles on it for $1,500, crapped out interior included.
I loved that car. Relaced the AC compressor twice and the alternator twice and that was about it. Averaged 28 mpg during its life. Sometimes I wish it were still in my stable...

Get out there and [B][SIZE="4"]DRIVE ![/SIZE][/B]

I drove a 156 1.9 Ltr. TD Sportwagon for 2100 miles in Italy this past September. I would be a happy man to have one here in the States. Looks are terrific, handles like a dream (uncanny considering the smooth ride), Cruised the autostrada at 200KMHR with ease.

Very interesting photos and information. I'm not sure that 500 giulietta Colli wagons were actually built, but that appears to have been the intention. I also did not know that they were built in association with Boneschi.
