If you move your computer to the inside of the car, then you can't fill the interior with water and drive it like Rutledge did on TV... On the plus side though you won't have to worry about your computer being like this:

i was thinking of just rerouting the wires to the computer so they go up between the fender and the wheel well. or moving the computer to the back side of the wheel well but it looks tight back there and would need to see if cowl would be draining on it. my drivers wheel well is pretty empty now i removed the cruise and the washer tank and welded all the holes shut.

It's $40 for the resin body, you'd need an Impala SS kit or Caprice kit or similar to finish it.

I have the SS kit, debating getting the wagon too....

the model wagon body looks good. its a tbi year the emblem placement is wrong for lt1 car. i shaved the emblems off with a razor and need to sand the remaining part of emblem down. the body is not fitting chassie now need to do a little sanding on the front to get it to fit correctly. when you get the wagon it comes with body, windows,roof rack, taillights and the back part of the int. They also sell a roadmaster kit but true to custom roadie parts it cost more than the caprice

the way we take care of them and ask themselves WHY!

guys that are anal retentive about cleaning stuff,. usually people with a lot of unresolved issues in their lives so they are drawn to cleaning and making things 'perfect' to compensate for the things they cannot control,.which makes them also control freaks. i,ve heard it discussed that small penis size also contributes to this disorder,.

proper name is "OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE DISORDER"

someone who is obsessive about things being in the correct order and obsessively clean.

Robert.I always wondered about all that time Tim and John spent together under Tim's wagon.
Maybe they just discovered their feelings because of the "Happy Feelings"our wagons give

Don't we all use Q-tips to clean little bits and pieces on our cars? Have any of you seen the new pointed Q-tips? Those work great!
