The torture that is the Frankfurt Auto Show is upon us, and Jalopnik's got a whole slew of sweet station wagon-shaped bamboo skewers to jam under our American fingernails.

Here's a Honda Accord Touring Concept named to remind Americans that sorry, in our market, Accord wagons are just a concept. here's the Jalopnik gallery and mention of the Euronly i-dtec turbodiesel. sigh.

Wagons are starting to regain popularity in the US now that gas prices have risen and SUV sales have declined.
