16: Dodge Magnum SRT8
By the mid-2000s, the station wagon was a relic of the past. There were a few wagons on the market at the time, but they were generally a specialty car. Chrysler soon introduced the Dodge Magnum. The Magnum was a station wagon, but it was meant to reinvigorate the segment. With a tough-looking design and a powerful Hemi V8 engine, the Magnum was anything but the average station wagon (via Car & Driver).
The Magnum was a sales flop for Dodge, but the fact that you could get a Hemi V8 in a wagon made the car interesting. The depreciation of the Magnum was devastating for the seller anyway. You can find one of these in decent shape for far less than $5,000. For the price tag, you get a car that’s based on the same platform as the Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300C. Coupled with Hemi power and moderately attractive looks, the Magnum is a muscle car bargain.
