10: Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon

The original Cadillac CTS-V blew doors off the auto industry when it was originally released. The car was at the apex of the performance and luxury world. The CTS-V Sport Wagon takes things to another level with a serious blend of performance and quality. Its luxurious interior and cargo space are only matched by the Cadillac features that you’d come to expect. The CTS-V will take a Corvette on thanks to the Corvette power plant under the hood.

On top of all that performance, the CTS-V is designed to be a driver’s car. The suspension has been upgraded as well as the wheels and brakes. In every sense of the word, the CTS-V is just about the best performance bargain that you can get. The supercar handling and the off-the-line performance are the best aspects of this car.

9: Chevrolet Caprice Corvette Chaser

The “box” Chevy is one of the most popular body styles the brand ever had. The Caprice Corvette Chaser was a special prototype that was designed by GM. Legend has it that there are quite a few of these prototypes that have made it onto the roadways. Its distinct white paint and subtle performance are two of the things that make this car stand out.

8: Dodge Hemi Coronet Wagon

The Dodge Coronet isn’t the first car that comes to mind when you think of performance. But that didn’t stop Dodge from building a performance version of the car. By cramming a Hemi engine into the Coronet Wagon, the company created quite the muscle car. You could even say that the Coronet Wagon was the precursor to the Dodge Magnum drivers got decades later.

These wagons are quite rare but their performance is quite legendary. You can’t go wrong with the original Hemi V8 power crammed into a Coronet wagon. The look and feel of this wagon are something that you just don’t get very often, and the sound of the Hemi is noteworthy.

7: Chevrolet Chevelle SS Wagon

Another rarity in the muscle car world is the Chevelle SS Wagon. GM was reluctant to sell one of these until 1973 rolled around. The company needed to bolster sales and thus a Chevelle SS Wagon was indeed released to the public. The car had many of the same features as the original Chevelle SS, which made it quite a unique ride.

The standout feature of the Chevelle SS wagon was of course the performance, which at the time was ahead of the curve. The look and feel of this ride were not only fast but also ahead of its time, as performance wagons were a new concept.
