Hooniverse Asks: So what's your favorite wagon?

The above video by our friends at Petrolicious is just wonderful. They’ve managed to find someone who owns a 1987 Mercedes-Benz AMG Hammer Wagon. This is a real deal longroof built by the Affalterbach best.  Someone back in the late 1980s bought a diesel wagon, then shipped that big beautiful bastard back to Germany for the full Hammer treatment. Now a 6.0-liter 32-valve V-8 engine sits under the hood in a vehicle that would be casually dismissed as nothing more than a humble grocery getter.
This is good wagon right here. It’s tremendous wagon. In fact, it sits quite high on my list of all-time great wagons. Of course the more modern E63 AMG is also up there. As is the RS6 from Audi. It’s not just Germany that makes some great wagons though, as the Buick Roadmaster and Cadillac CTS-V are pantheon longroofs.
Which wagon though… is best wagon?
I’ll accept custom answers such as the Bertone Jet and Ferrari Breadvan, but special consideration is given to full-on factory offerings. Hit me with your best shots… fire away.
