Help me find my Utility Wagon

I would like to find a second car for things that I don't want to do in the F30 like Home Depot runs, going somewhere where i know there is going to be muck and dirt. Also something fun to play and tinker with.

I have decided that I am leaning towards an old used wagon, but I can't find one for a good price. Anyone have a good suggestion for an older (80s or 90s) wagon that has decent looks, decent performance, and can find for a bargin?

Initially I wanted something turbo charged (cause I love turbos despite their reliability especially in the 80s and 90s) and something that comes in a manual. Euro would be good (BMW, Audi, Volvo) but JDM would be fine as well (maybe an Outback? )

Any thoughts?

Looking for a slightly larger wagon than an impreza wrx (although would be a fun car to hack on)

I like the late 80's/early 90's Volvo wagons, but decent ones are tough to find. I think your best bet may end up being the Outback wagon. Seems to fit your needs the best, and good used ones should be easy to find in CO.

The only thing that's really cool about the Volvos is the style because they are s-l-o-w. I had a 1992 Saab 9000 CD Turbo and while it was ugly and heavy, it could still get out of its own way.

2014 e63 wagon, see what I did there?

guys he is asking for an older wagon, not new, old. I'm looking at 2003 525/540 wagons with the sport package, can be picked up for 9-13k.
