Wagon Wednesday: Matchbox Cadillac CTS Wagon...
Happy Wagon Wednesday!
We have been meaning to showcase the Matchbox CTS Wagon for awhile now. The latest version was released in a 5-pack a couple of months ago, and we just haven't gotten around to showing it.
Not that we don't like it. The Cadillac CTS Wagon is one of our favorite Matchbox releases of the last few years, and it is even better paired with the CTS Coupe that was released a year after. What isn't there to like? To us, the Cadillac CTS is one of our favorite current American cars, and major kudos to Cadillac for doing a wagon.
Wagons will always be cool, and the CTS was one of the coolest. They didn't sell a ton, but don't you get the feeling the CTS-V especially will a classic someday? If they weren't already so expensive, I would seriously consider getting one. Most Americans for some reason don't get the whole wagon thing like most folks worldwide, but we can't think of a more perfect car than one with 556 horsepower, that can go 0 to 60 in 3.9 seconds, and can haul an Eames rocker home from the store. There are very few modern cars I would take over that.
But at least we have a Matchbox version. It isn't the CTS-V, but it will do. The latest version in blue was a surprise. No one knew it was coming, but we are happy it did. Matchbox decided to make it part of the "Outdoor Sights" 5-pack, and we love that they added it as a normal family traveler as opposed to another logo unlicensed model. The blue is beautiful, and the 5-spokes sporty.
And when you put the blue together with the previous versions, you have a great little collection, especially if you put the Wagon and Coupe together. We hope to see more versions in the future, but this assortment is good as is.
So is the blue our favorite? Almost. The orange version with orange rims still takes the cake. Sharp and unique.
So yes, a few months late, but here is our submission to the joy that is Wagon Wednesday...
