In the US of A, you can drive anything. Muscle cars, trucks and particularly the SUV is king. So if you choose to ignore all of that and daily a traditional longroof estate car, you’re… kind of an eccentric.

Curious to dive into the cult of the wagon, TopGear magazine’s Ollie Kew arranged a meet-up with ten of the West Coast’s biggest wagon fanatics, and took along the latest, greatest, fastest Audi Avant yet: the new 631bhp, £110,000 RS6 Performance.

It’s the best RS6 ever, and proof Audi is getting the hang of an entertaining chassis… but at TG’s Festival of Wagon, it was the old-timers (and their owners) that were the real stars of the show.
