PostSubject: not quite the same   Sun Nov 09, 2014 3:46 pm

I have sadly sold my 96 GS wagon and am going to drive it to Chicago on Friday, Sad  Its going to a good home, a fellow member is waiting anxiously for its arrival. We are expecting a foot of snow on Monday, hope its cleared up before the journey. I was already missing my car real bad so did what every one else would do, find another one right?  So I found a 95 dggm woody, kinda rusty, really dirty, cloth interior, oily grime encrusted motor that seems to run real good at low 265000 miles. It does not compare at all to my GS, but I still have a woody Embarassed and I don't need to worry about driving it in the winter. I have a long list of repairs ahead, oil leaks, window rollers, find some wheels and lose the whitewall tires, major cleaning.  Pretty cool to see a pair in the drive for a couple of days, kind of like my own wagonfest.

I've heard that there's someone on the board who can upgrade that for you. Laughing

The new wagon looks to be in great shape in those pictures. If its crusty you don't want to see what qualifies as a rusty Canadian car Embarassed

Hope you post progress pictures of the new one.

Looks can be deceiving, had the leaky sunroof issue, not sure whats holding it in as its all rusted around it, not much left of the pillars between the doors either. other than that it is in pretty good shape for 265,000 miles, paint and trim is near spotless. inside is ok other than a dog must have gotten hungry and ate most of the carpet in the cargo area and it smells like buttered popcorn real bad

Understood! Good luck. I'm doing a bare metal re paint of my 95 Mustang GT convertible. It's in primer now, and since I don't have a fully heated garage, the painting will have to wait until spring when the weather gets a little warmer.

Love that color. Looks like all the black side trim is still on it too, nice!

Good luck with it and keep us in the loop on the repairs/mods.

I'm sorry to see your white car go, but good for you for softening the blow! Smart!

Well, by the looks of it, nice wagon. The stang on the otherhand (is it a 70's sportsroof?) is certainly something to keep.

I don't think salt got my new old wagon, the floors and inner fenders as well as the majority of the body is pretty clean, the seams of the roof and the a and b pillars are really bad, I think I could put a fist trough the b pillars. Makes me cringe every time I open the doors, especially after seeing my GS wagon being so clean.

Oh yeah, I changed my avatar, that old f**d is the reason I sold my GS wagon
