I'm interested in Wagons as well, they're kind of like the ultimate sleeper. I can imagine getting 10 bags of landscaping soil and then making Mustang driver soil his pants about 1,000 feet away from a stoplight.
Interestingly enough, I just read the article in September's Motor Trend that pitted the 2006 Dodge Magnum SRT8 against the mighty 2005 Mercedes E55 AMG Wagon. Having driven the E55 in sedan form a couple of years ago, I know not to mess with them. They're ungodly fast. Anyway, the Dodge posts times of 0-60 in 5.1 and a quarter mile in 13.1 - not bad! The bad Benz gets to 60 in 4.1 and through the traps at 12.3. That supercharger is pretty incredible.
Thought you might be interested that there are a couple of quick wagons out there.
