There were never V8 wagons, only a V8 "lang"(Limo.)

Yep.  In the pictures I've seen, it looks like the owner lives out of it.

That's exactly what it is.

>weird. anyone know what that is? lister? or am i just nuts? [most likely]

This car gets spotted all the time...it is a V8q with the back end of
a Ford Tarus wagon.  They probably did it because it was dirt cheap
to buy the Tarus shell.

Absolutely insane.  I -pray- it isn't a manual; hacking a car like
that, in that way, should be a crime.

Most folks just buy a 200q20v avant.  Miss the V8 punch?  Not after a
chip, you won't.  Still not happy, despite the fact that the car is
lighter and has more HP/Torque with the chip?  Fine, get the RS2

Anyway, someone on the list probably remembers where the pictures are
of the monster, a lister once saw it and had a camera handy.
