According to my search for wagon terms...........
"Estate Wagon" is a British term for what Yanks call a "Station Wagon"
"Shooting Brake" is a British term for a station wagon with wooden sides
and tailgate - we Americans would call it a "Woodie".
"Station Wagon" is an American term, first used by auto makers for a any
coach body with multiple seats behind the driver, no trunk, and a lifting gate
or tailgate on the rear of the vehicle. Originally called "Depot Hacks", the

the load (people or goods) at a train depot - later referred to as a train
Now then - anybody care to split hairs about pickups?
