If you are going to drive a classy wagon that is somewhere between being new and being a classic, I can’t think of a better car than the E39 generation BMW 5-series. This is the car that your random neighbor will think is newish, but BMWphiles will know it is over 20 years old and entering the club of vintage cars with ease. Today’s E39 wagon is expensive, but it has low miles, is in good condition, and is equipped with a manual gearbox. Find this 2001 BMW 525iT offered for $15,000 in Fairfield, CA via craigslist. Tip from Matt V.
