I realize that most people want new, and your wife doesn't like wagons, but this conversation fuels my desire to keep my '84 VW Quantum wagon. $200. for a clean body,
have a good lead for a $300. diesel transplant,

My previous '82 got 55mpg+ on cross country trips, and a 6' mattress fits perfectly
in the back.

If you'd care to spend more $ on actual family outings, and less on vehicles, one can gain MORE LIFE! I'm sure in as big a place as Atlanta, there would still be a few around,
but thats just my 2c's worth.
