Hero Transports a Freaking Snowmobile in Their BMW 3 Series, Proves Wagon Superiority

David Tracy Dec 20, 2018. 22 comments

Since Jalopnik’s inception, we’ve preached the joys of wagonhood , and often complained that Europe gets all the long-roof cars that we so yearn for . But if you still don’t get why we love these things, just look at this BMW 3 Series wagon driver in Canada transporting a snowmobile. It’s incredible.

The photo above and the one directly below were taken last Sunday evening by Isabelle Rioux of Mistassini, Québec. She said she spotted the BMW E91 in a McDonald’s parking lot in Dolbeau-Mistassini on Lac St-Jean in Québec.

Isabelle and her friend Nancy reacted to the sighting just as you’d expect: they laughed in bewilderment at the sight of someone somehow having managed to shove that big machine into the back of a sports wagon:

Here’s another photo taken by Nancy’s friend Sylvie Girard showing the rear view of the wagon, with its hatch opened wide to allow the German car to consume the most Canadian of transportation modes:

And here’s another picture taken in front of Starbucks in Moncton, New Brunswick.

More proof that wagons rule. They just do.

Homeowners' Association Finds Stolen Mud-Filled 1983 Pontiac Firebird At The Bottom Of A Lake Homeowners' Association Finds Stolen Mud-Filled 1983 Pontiac Firebird At The Bottom Of A Lake

It seems like every story we write about HOAs involves them trying to rid their pristine neighborhoods of weird old cars (and sometimes planes ), and this one is no different. Well, actually it is a little different, because this 1983 Pontiac Firebird wasn’t in a driveway, it was at the bottom of a lake.The Cobb County Police Department,...

The Dodge Viper in its final form sits next to a Chevrolet Corvette C8 development car in the parking lot of the Concours d’Elegance of America in Plymouth, Michigan. The snake may seem primitive compared to the dual-clutch, mid-engine ’vette, but there’s something alluring about its simplicity.

Jalopnik ReviewsAll of our test drives in one convenient place.  Full disclosure: I’ve never been hugely impressed by any of the hybrids I’ve driven. I like my cars sporty, with power outputs that should make you question their legality. Neither of those characteristics have been typically found in any hybrid I have driven. I figured, then, perhaps I’m not the right...

The Big Diesel Lie Grows While The Trump Administration Rolls Coal The Big Diesel Lie Grows While The Trump Administration Rolls Coal

Who can forget Dieselgate, the headline-grabbing, reputation-destroying pollution scandal of 2015? In which Volkswagen AG, one of the planet’s largest carmakers, was exposed for installing defeat devices on up to 11 million of its diesels to trick regulators around the world into thinking these cars complied with emissions standards when in fact they didn’t come close, exceeding U.S. limits, for...

Maybe The BMW i3 Should Have Been A Mini All Along Maybe The BMW i3 Should Have Been A Mini All Along

Mini claims to have received over 45,000 deposit orders for the new electric Mini Cooper SE , and considering that’s about double the European sales of the BMW i3 last year running similar hardware, maybe the i3 should have always been a Mini. The Electric Mini Cooper SE Is a Lot of Fun. But Is That Enough? This new...

At any rate, in the latest example of the future of the auto industry being tie-ups, partnerships and...

Some people have accused used M3 prices of being unhinged from reality. Especially for the car’s first three generations, people are charging insane sums. Luckily, a seller in Beverly Hills is offering his clean E36 for only $58,585.85. Now, I know what you’re thinking. Obviously getting a mass-produced, 24-year-old German sports sedan for only $20,000 more than its original...

With BMW’s withdrawal from the World Endurance Challenge and the flagship 24 hours of LeMans, some may have worried that Big M8 racing memes were dead. While the M8 GTE soldiers on in IMSA SportsCar racing, the scale of the M8 is best seen in its new role as the safety car of MotoGP. The Big M8 Meme Is...

Dead: BMW 3 Series GT, BMW 6 Series GT, BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe Dead: BMW 3 Series GT, BMW 6 Series GT, BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe

BMW just Thanos-snapped its weird humpback lineup, unceremoniously killing the BMW 3 Series GT, BMW 6 Series GT , and BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe for the 2020 model year. The idea of hatchback sedans should be pure, and simple, and practical, and enjoyable. The ungodly awkward shape of the 3 Series GT was none of that, except maybe...

Jalopnik ReviewsAll of our test drives in one convenient place.  The E34 BMW M5 of the ’80s and ’90s, with its husky body and four round headlights, still gets dismissed as an also-ran between the classic O.G. E28 M5 and perennial enthusiast-favorite E39 M5 . After a quick blast in one of these rad sedans, I decided it’s worth revisiting. But...
