The Wagons Of WilliamsburgS

It wasn't so cold that my nipples immediately turned to hairy nickels today so I thought it would be a good time to do a little carspotting. I thought if Raph could do it, so might I. First stop: Brooklyn.

What I immediately noticed when exploring Williamsburg was an abundance of D-pillars, which is appropriate since estates are sort of the hipster of the automobile world. Formerly ubiquitous in popular culture, now passé, it becomes ubiquitous in counter automotive culture.

I barely captured the surprisingly clean Caprice Classic Wagon above, but it was the only woodie I saw so I'm glad I did.

A nice Mazda6. Still a beautiful car, thanks to a dynamic front and a nicely rising belt-line and probably useless spoiler. The roof rack helps.
