    '11 V Wagon, ( '13 427 Vette & '14 ATS)

    Where was this shot?

    I also noticed that the title on the video called the V Wagon an "Estate" - Must be a regional name.

    Personally, I prefer the British name - Shooting Brake - versus Estate.

    It is British. Estate is a wagon. Shooting Brake is more like a 2 door wagon - Range Rover Evoque being the current example

    So, a Chevy Nomad would be a "Shooting Brake" while the V Wagon is an "Estate" - or it might seem.

    "Shooting Brake" is used to describe both 2 and 4 door wagons when I search for images of them.

    Seems like all terms these days are getting "fuzzy" with the advent of amateur non fact checked dictionaries on the Internet.

    If the rear doors are "concealed", then it would still fit as a SB. The CTS wagon is marginal IMHO. It has the pitched rear end typical of SB, but not quite the 2 door appearance.
