I guess some folks like 4 doors - no waiting.
What ever car you like is fine long as you make

I don't think they sold the 300C wagons here in the states, but they're all over Europe. I don't like the Magnum's look, but I'd rock the 300C "Avant".

I love the look of the Magnums!
My wife doesn't. She calls them ZZ Top cars because of the chopped roof look.

I've seen quite a few around here, however I do live really close to Chrysler HQ so they may have been engineer specials.

They look like something between a truck and a cow. The roof isn't really low. It's an illusion because everything else on the car is so high. They had a 3 year run for those who liked it.

You are privileged to spot them. I've never seen one anywhere in the United States.

Wikipedia:

"The 300 is also sold in Europe and Australia as both a sedan and a station wagon. The station wagon, sold in Europe as the 300C Touring (not to be confused with the North American sedan's "Touring" trim level), shares much of its sheet metal with the Dodge Magnum. The 300 Touring differs from the Magnum in that its exterior styling and interior are that of the 300 instead of the less-luxurious Magnum. All 300 Touring models, along with European 300C models and right-hand drive models, are built by Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria."

They knew the Magnum front end wouldn't fly over there!

A truck and a cow. lmfao I love it! Funny.

That reminds me of my Father saying that a Corvette Sting Ray from the rear looked like it had a cow's hips.

Aaron,
You have completely ruined the look of the Magnum for me. finger
I just saw one when I went to the bank and couldn't get the truck and cow vision out of my head.

Meh. I would have never bought one anyways.

cheers

I'm not kidding. I parked nose to nose with a Magnum and its head lamps clear the Riviera's hood! They're trucks, and so are chargers, imo. The cow thing, I just think the grill looks like big nostrils.

Moooooo!

Those are some impressive wheel horsepower numbers! Only 11.5% drivetrain loss! WOW!!!!

There's an entry at dragtimes where an '05 hit exactly 300HP, but less torque. The only mod: "Magnaflow exhaust"

You know, if you wanted to get creative, I saw an episode of Overhaulin where they swapped front ends on a 300 and a Magnum and it looked nice! Well on the Magnum I mean. I didnt see how the 300 looked with the Magnum front, but I imagine it would set it apart from any other ones you see on the street!

Chrysler actually produced 300C wagons in limited numbers, it was called the 300 Touring.
2005 300c - Page 3 Chrysler300CSRT8Touring



there is LOTS of them in europe.
i have even drived a brand new touring 300c from the shop(had 4km in tripometer) drived it 350km.

ya, i was really impressed with it, i thought these cars are supposed to have like 30% drivetrain loss with the auto tranny and stuff. idk, maybe i got a "factory freak" the only thing that i changed myself was the oil, done before the dyno day, and i put in a drop in k and n air filter....not exactly mods lol

Since the guy on drag times got within 1HP of yours on the dyno with a basically stock 300C, I'd say your power output is pretty average, which is a really good thing.
