Those of you looking forward to Rainbow Dash’s chapter, I am happy to announce that it is now available for your reading pleasure!

I dare say that RD’s part will be hilarious. She’ll probably look for a M3, Supra, Shelby GT500 and the like and end up with a Del Sol or MX-5.

Note that car can also hold 4x8 amount of room in the cargo area when all the seats are down. Wagons aren’t high with headroom, though; a second reason why it’s in the fanfic is because it’s a utility car. Not pickup-truck or SUV type utility, but cozy road trip type. Also since it’s well maintained for being about 20 years old, it’s showy to a degree - not brand new but clearly cared for.

Fluttershy and that bus could bring up some interesting future developments. I hope Flim reminded Applejack to not use Gasoline in that Diesel too, a friend of mine just told me of a story where someone put gas in a diesel tank and damaged if not destroyed the engine.

Hey everyone, Caddy Finz (the fanfic author) here! I must say, my friend aquaticsun has done an outstanding job with this cover. Feel free to check out my story on fimfiction.net. Basically my idea is to make up a silly series of events and each character gets a chapter of their own. One of my shorter stories. I hope you enjoy! :)

No need to worry mate. I did jump to conclusions here since in the fanfic that’s her first car. So yeah, I am at fault here because I thought at first that it was a what car would X character drive picture.

Utter crap? Nope. They weren’t full-blown luxury cars but they weren’t crap.  
Body-on-frame like a truck, a Chevy small-block (which can be repaired with gum and coat hangers) and an interior that can take the worst of 6 temperamental kids and an outraged mother.
 
You seem pretty stuck on talking down the author’s choice of vehicle for Rarity. If it bothers you so much, walk away. There is no battle to win here.

I’ve read that, though I don’t think I absorbed it all into my mind very well. I did notice what you mentioned.
 
@TheAntiCat
 
I don’t know much about Cadillac wagons, except that there are very few of them.
 
Regarding Clamshell wagons, the tailgate occasionally had issues with going off the track; such as, if dirt got in it.
 
@Background Pony #D7A0
 
In the fanfic it had to do with finances. The one she ended up with is a last-year (1996) Roadmaster in wonderful cosmetic shape, for $7,800 - which isn’t an unreasonable price at this time (IMO) if the rest of the car’s in as fine shape as the cosmetics.

The Jaguar E-Type (especially the Series 1) and the Aston Martin DB5 are exactly the kind of car Rarity would drive. Fast, luxurious, expensive and real head turners.

Because that’s what the writer wanted. Maybe they’re more familiar with Buick land yachts.
 
Sure, you could argue that a Audi Estate would be more in character for Rarity. But wouldn’t a Rolls-Royce or Bentley be even more fitting? Why not a classic Jaguar E-Type?
Background Pony #ED4F
If you wanted Rarity to have a station wagon why didn’t you give her an Audi RS6 Avant?

Weren’t the Cadillac wagons mostly made by coach builders? I’m sure Caddy made some on their own.
 
I’ve seen a few of those clamshell wagons. I also like the tailgates that can either drop down or swing out. Neat engineering.

Ugh, now I recall a day as a kid being stuck behind a stinky truck for miles. I don’t know if it was Gas or Diesel. Still, Diesels can be cleaner now; Biodiesel is getting more common lately and that lowers emissions, the petroldiesel doesn’t have as much sulphur in it now (and that lowers lubricity, which is fixed with Biodiesel mixed in) and there’s some emission-lowering system on models made since 2007 (Correct me if that’s changed.) Ironically though that emissions system makes it so you can’t run 100% Biodiesel in it.
 
Even a Diesel from the 1950s could run on Biodiesel, as long as all the rubber components in contact with the fuel are replaced. (Biodiesel rots rubber.) Also, since Biodiesel cleans up emissions so well it’s recommended to use it gradually; it also cleans up fuel systems of unused Petroldiesel fast which can plug up fuel filters, so using a mixture and moving up in Bio grades is recommended.
 
I’m not sure the reports on those ill-made 5.7 Diesels that they were made from gas blocks are correct, but whatever happened they did mess up a lot in earlier years. The issues were rectified in later years (1984, 1985 in particular) but the reputation damage was done by that time.

That’s a bit odd, I mean the 1991-1996 Roadmaster wasn’t that off from getting 20-30 MPG in the hands of a talented driver. Then again it came before 0w30 oil was as common as it now is, didn’t it.
 
Funnily, my 1999 Suburban isn’t classified as a truck. That is, even if I’m towing 7,000+ pounds (counting the trailer weight) I don’t have to take it in to a weigh station - in Pennsylvania at least. Literally, this information’s coming directly from several police stations.
 
@TheAntiCat
 
Heh, “550 Yup” on the license plate for that blue 1957 Suburban. Those are some nifty wagons there.
 
Wagons were common in the 1970s too, I have too many to list in one post here but here’s one particular oddity for the time:
 
1971-1976 G.M. Full-Size “Clamshell” Wagon, named because of the tailgate which went in the floor and window which went in the roof:

Pictured is a 1974 Cadillac. Few Cadillacs were made, most were Buick, Chevrolet, Oldsmobile or Pontiac. Out of the hundreds of thousands manufactured, not many remain now - as I said earlier, those rear windows on the sides were prone to rust since water just laid there; couple that with the fact these things are pretty darn hard to stop in a demolition derby and there’s reason why there aren’t as many these days.
 
1976 Chrysler Town And Country

I don’t know a lot about these ones, though they do look nice I think.
 
1976 Ford Country Squire

I wanted to post a pic of a red one, this reminds me of A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving since at the end the gang are in the back end of a red wagon which has dual side-facing seats in the back characteristic of Fords and Mercuries.
