PostSubject: Back in the Saddle   Thu 23 Feb 2017 - 0:39

Nearly 3 years after selling my wagon and swearing I would never own another one, I brought one home today. Have been searching for about a month now. Missed a few deals and then got lucky and found one (1994) a forum member was selling. Reached a deal through PMs and set up a buy date. Being the typical addict though, I kept searching on CL, and a couple days ago I found a 1995 for the same asking price but over 3 hours closer to home. So I just had to go over and check it out. Liked what I saw and drove, so I made an offer which they accepted.

This car is a filthy mess compared to the other one but for me the Big Mirrors (and location) sealed the deal. Needs a major cleaning and TLC.





Car is basically rust free, even the majority of the frame is clean. Has some surface spotting in a couple places and a couple of the typical brown seams but nothing major. Of course there are water leaks in the back but apparently the drains are clear because the quarters/spare well are spotless. None of the windows go down. 3 motors try but I assume all the slides are busted.

Happy to have another one and am looking forward to fixing it up.

You're going to have to change your name... Wink

That said, nice find! I look forward to seeing what you do with it. I do like those wheels on the wagons too!

Thanks everyone. Got her washed up over the weekend and cleaned up some of the interior. Also bought a new tire to replace the destroyed new tire. Stopped cleaning and ordered a complete carpet set since the one in it is trash. Oil has been spilled in the rear compartment and the passenger area is worn beyond use. Have to get the windows re-tinted.

Only one window rolls down thanks to busted slides and one dead motor. Will also re do the headliner and scrub the interior parts down. 3 weeks til Daytona and I at least want her somewhat more presentable.

A little over a year now. Have done lots and lots of cleaning. New carpets, redone headliner, added a few missing parts.





Complete suspension rebuild with Moog parts. Got a bit of a drop in the process. Installed a set Ridler 650 wheels. 18x8 with 4.5 BS Wanted +6 but only zeros were readily available, they fit perfectly.

Tinted the windows. Blacked out all the trim/pillars/door handles. Painted grille, tinted head lights.
