PostSubject: Losing a dam good wagon to derby   Thu May 29, 2014 3:17 pm

So this guy stops me today and ask me if I need a rear glass for my wagon, and I say yes. So we proceed to his place and low and behold he has this wagon that he just bought for $500. It's my dad's old wagon he got out of Virginia, and dam it's still clean. But no matter how hard I tried he would not sell it. Dam DERBY guy's. So looks like I at least get the rear glass and the mirrors off of it.

I have seen that car, it is a shame, assuming it still looks like the picture.

That's heartbreaking, especially with the sedan nose swap done. Really Really SAD.

I already looked at wagon, and yes I looked under it,... that is why I said "dam it's still clean" Trust me it's still worth saving I offered to double is money and he turned me down. So this weekend I'm going back to strip it of good parts. He will not sell me any sheet metal though.

It's funny, I never thought much of the Roady sedan front end on the wagons, but in white it really looks nice. What an idiot to ruin such a nice car in the demo derby. Maybe you could find a real rusty one on craigslist for him and get him to sell the white one to you for your double price offer?

The reason he won't sell it is the same reason I want it, It's solid. It's more durable and this is why he Is excited to own it.

Truth be told, I used to enjoy demolition derbies, many years ago. I always figured that the people who did it were using cars that were well and truly beyond any sort of repair.

I was really disgusted when I learned that isn't often the case.

It's such a shame that someone is going to destroy a perfectly good, usable car like that one. Mad Sad
