PostSubject: Hi from the land of lincoln, NO NOT CHICAGO!!!   Sat Aug 06, 2011 11:49 pm

hey guys, been looking at the forum for awhile, but just now joining. A little about me I'm a 29 year old agriculture and IM teacher at the local high school here in southern IL. Wagon history, is pretty short. A 88 country squire, that was brought to its demise at a local fair. I now have a 91 OCC that I have no intentions of doing this too. I love how this car drives, although still a little starved on power, its a nice cruiser, its currently getting a new GM performance crate engine though it shows a 111,000 on the clock but its severely sun burned and will be getting a new paint job in the near future. I have some other cars too a 70 chevelle, and a 240 volvo, and my diesel truck. I plan on building the wagon with my son over the next couple years and hope it can be a bonding experience!!

Welcome to the group and thats quite a collection of cars you have.Good luck on the bonding
plans.Hope your son realizes how how lucky he is to have a father like you.If your OCC should
end up going the way of your country squire,be prepared for the onslaught of insults.LOL
Welcome Again

Welcome to the group, glad you found us. Also good to hear of another Dad getting his kinds into cars. We need that and I try to do it with both my sons.

Post some pics when you can. Glad to see all these Olds popping up lately!

Welcome!

More likely, it will become a Bondo experience for both of you.

Welcome aboard! Love to see some pics of your Cruiser, sunburned or not. Wink

I too work in a high school. My AG teachers (and their welding classes) made me some cool couches from back seats.

trust me this wagon won't meet the same end, my wife wanted me to sell it for that. I can't bring myself to it. Its rough cosmetically very rough, but straight as an arrow, I can't find a ding anywhere, and rust free. So I figure this would be a good family rig to go with the 70!! As for the other wagon I know it was a wagon,but still a ford product.

what's the last 5 digits of the VIN? Just curious as I'm holding the earliest known 91 #139. Would love someone to come up with #1,

You can also go google compnine and put the VIN in and get the build sheet. Smile
