Last week’s photo showed the new Mercedes-Benz E63 wagon, which is more for show than most wagons need to be. For a better photo and information, read this week’s road test.
Chosen randomly from the correct entries was Jim Muraski, of Martinez.
He wins a prize from The Augusta Chronicle. Other readers identifying the vehicle were:

CUMMING, GA.: Chris Rhodes wrote: “Equipped with a 302-horsepower, 3.5-liter direct-injected gasoline V-6 and seven-speed automatic transmission, this wagon will hold its own against most competitors in this category.
“However, for those well-heeled consumers looking for sports car performance with grocery-getting capabilities, an AMG version of the E-wagon can be ordered. Featuring a twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V-8 pumping out 518 German horses and 518 pound-feet of torque, this is one wagon that can haul more than groceries. Zero-to-60 takes a scant 3.9 seconds and the quarter mile is consumed in only 12.2 seconds!
“This is Camaro ZL-1 and Mustang GT500 territory, folks, in a 4,500-plus pound wagon!
“So, if you own stock in a tire company, have a hundred grand lying around and want a station wagon that will pass almost everything except the gas station, I am sure AMG would be more than happy to build you one.”
