A few days ago we featured a W211 E63 AMG wagon that is one of the baddest long roofs you can buy. In the later half of the 2000’s, getting that kind of power from your wagon was easy. You could ride down to your local Mercedes-Benz dealer, write a large check, then ride off and answer the question that no one ever asked. Why does someone need a station wagon that damn fast? In 1996, it wasn’t that easy. In order to pin your groceries to the back window when you accelerate, you needed to do a little more leg work. Enter legendary Mercedes tuner Brabus. This 1996 E430 Brabus 6.0 Wagon located in Estonia was transformed from an adequately powered kombi to supercar with a hatch.

As some of you noticed, a few weeks ago we asked for submissions for some new authors to both help to diversify and bolster our content here at GCFSB. We were truly overwhelmed by the responses – many dedicated fans who were interested in joining the ranks wrote in and offered a glimpse into how much enthusiasm there is surrounding our site. We’ve tried very hard to keep consistently good and interesting daily posts out there, but there was no denying that at times we’ve been shorthanded over the past year. To help remedy that, we are very excited to have two new authors joining our ranks! The first of these authors is Andrew, who joins us with quite a bang in this E63 AMG Wagon. Please join me in welcoming Andrew on board!
When it comes to W211 E55 and E63 wagons, they are quickly approaching cult status in the Mercedes circles and beyond. This E63 wagon located outside of Washington D.C. has everything you could ask for if you ever feel the need to drive home from your Home Depot trip like your house is on fire.

I’ve written up a lot of Mercedes Sprinters, and have been especially excited when I find cool survivors from the old O309/0319 era. This, however, is a new one, a Spanish-built N1300 that served as the smaller counterpart to the full-size 309 vans, and it’s covered just 20k miles in its 37 years. The quality is so spectacular – and flush with ’70s style for better or worse – that it looks like one of those over-the-top VW restomods we’ve seen. The big roof-mounted luggage rack and chrome visor make it look ready to do runs from the airport to the hills in Guatemala (these were primarily used in the South American market) while the interior looks basic but very nice. It even has a little wooden table between the train-style seats doing its best impression of a Westy’s fold out surface. It’s too nice (and barely big enough inside) to convert to a camper and the 85hp from the OM615 diesel four will make highway speeds achievable only on the flats, so this isn’t going to leap to the top of dream adventure vans. Whatever you decide to do with it, you’ll have one of the most interesting looking vans on the road.
