An eagle wagon isn't sporty at all.. Not like subbie'*.

Crossovers are nice because you get great hauling space, car like safety and 'ok' mileage. essentially minivans that aren't a minivan.

If I put the rear seats down, I have a ton of room. You have to remember, no wagon is a real sporty car, not even a Subaru.

I beg to differ. They might not be "sporty" in that they aren't that fast on the road, but they were far more useful in mild-to-moderate off-road situations than anything that Subaru put out then, or for years afterward. And they're certainly better than any of the new Jeep crossovers...
Remember that the Eagles used an actual 4WD system, not AWD, which was still in it'* infancy in the seventies.
