From the well and truly forgotten department of Junkyard Chronicle comes this once mighty Peugeot 505 turbo station wagon. It is a mystery now why French turbocharged station wagons never quite caught on here in the United States, especially since the imported longroofs were by all accounts competent and stylish machines. This particular Franco-American turbowagon was of 1989 vintage and still holds great appeal in a world of modern automobiles that is almost entirely without proper sport wagons. This one had evidently survived long past its brethren before meeting its ultimate demise, likely the result of a part constructed of then-unobtanium expiring. Front airdam spoiler and alloy wheels are but few hints to what was once considered a fine road going wagon of its time.
