That corners on that dent's impression are too sharp for a stripper pole; what did you hit?!  :ohmy:

Ah well, this is my exe's handi-work.  I gave her the wagon many months ago, only to buy it back after she trashed it.  Says the sun was in her eyes...hmmpf.  

And I'd definitely consider that the stamp of a 4"x4" post - at a pretty good clip.   Had to bring it back into the fold.  Even if I fix and sell it.

I've had the 850 for almost a year already. It's family back up and winter car.

how does it pull with a P2 on a trailer?? Seems a little heavy for it?

I pulled it for about 65 miles and never went above 55, but quite hilly. With the transmission in "3" it actually towed it surprisingly well. It wasn't going to win any races, and the steering was a little light. But all in all it was completely fine. If this was an 850 Turbo with overload springs, it would have been a breeze.

This is amazing, one of these days I need another 850 only this time it should be a wagon!

I have an old VW diesel for the commuting MPGs but I want an 850 wagon for weekend hauling, around town driving and highway trips.

850 always looks so good after it gets a wash. And I'm breaking many records by owning it for almost a complete year. Took pics of it since I'm casually looking for a wagon.
