A few weeks back I was dropping off my wife and smelled coolant. Got home and it was spilling all over the driveway. Of course it was the heater control valve (restrictor for heater core). I ordered one at the parts store and put in a temporary fix. Well, like most of my temporary fixes it stayed like that until one day I was driving and it popped off, again spilling out all of my coolant. Luckily I was litterally next to the parts store. So I went inside, bought some pliers, coolant and grabbed the part. Fixed it in the parking lot and I was on my way.

Last weekend I went to the market for some stuff. Came outside and just heard 1 solid CLICK. Click, click, click. Great! Got a ride to my truck and went to the parts store. I usually use a 'vette starter in this situation but I was just gonna grab the regular starter this time. Turns out the 'vette starter was $50 cheaper so that's what I got. I eventually got the thing to start and drove it to work. Up on the lift it went and it's starting perfect now with the new starter (Duh).

Leaving work, I stomped on the gas to about 30mph, the speed limit, before slowing down to make a turn. The LT1 revved up and screamed out of those loud mufflers I just put on right past a police officer sitting on the side of the road. Perfect! He yanks me and asks if I know why he pulled me over. I say no, handing him my license. He wrote me a warning for leaving without care. I guess the car sounds faster than it is. Wink

Did a new video. Don't mind the hanger rattle. It's touching the hitch.

Its been quite a while since I've updated this post. I moved to FL and drove the wagon down here a little over a year ago. Right before I left, The rear most passenger side manifold bolt broke and the gasket blew out. It was quite loud.






Changed out the Caprice grill/ support for a RMW grill/ support I purchased a while back from a member here.





The wagon sat for a few months as it had no AC so I was daily driving my Fleetwood. Then, my sisters transmission went in her car so she was driving the wagon for a few months.

She liked the wagon so we found her a very clean Roadmaster Limited Sedan, same color combo as my wagon.





I moved from my moms house and the wagon got put in my backyard. The grass over grew it and it was neglected until a few months ago when my Fleetwood blew a brake line.

The tires on the wagons SS rims were shot and so I pulled it out of the back yard, put on my American Racing Hopsters and drove it to work the next day.



Few weeks later I got tired of the bad exhaust manifold leak and decided to fix it one afternoon. Took a few hours to replace all the bolts and gasket on the passenger side. I could not remove the broken stud using the weld on a nut method. So, I just tightened the new bolts the best I could and it does not leak anymore.



About a week after that, on my way to work one morning the transmission was acting very funny. The reverse was always weak on it since the installation (used from a 9c1). That night on my way home, it lost all forward gears. I located a used 50k mile transmission from a clean roadmaster sedan in the yard and swapped them out.



I had to cut the exhaust since sometime in the past one of the ball flanges was removed. When I brought it to the exhaust shop to be welded I had the cats removed. Sounds very nice now.

I have for immediate future plans, a set of chrome 20" American Racing Novas (already acquired, need tires), front end rebuild, shocks, replacement ac compressor, blower motor, resistor, front pads/rotors, a set of used shorty headers and a 3.23 posi rear from a TBI wagon. Alignment, ac charge and then speaker upgrades and the wagon will be officially DONE for quite a while. It has been and will continue to be a great daily for me.

I don't think anyone is paying attention to this thread anymore but, I recently did some work to the wagon. The brakes were squealing so I ordered new Centric rotors and Centric loaded calipers. I had my new 255/35R20 Falken Azenis PT722s mounted on the 20x8.5 chrome American Racing Nova's I had sitting at home waiting. I bought a splined lug nut kit to bolt them on the car. When I did the brakes, I cleaned the bearings in a parts washer, blew them out with air and repacked with grease before installing them in the new rotors with new seals. Sometime over the next few months I will be taking it apart for some rust repair, bodywork and paint.

Keep it LAB, the orange would look funny with a blue interior.

I think I will keep it LAB as I don't really want to open a can of worms taking off the tailgate and 4 doors. But, if I did decide to change the color, it would be PPM. I have already determined it would go well with the blue interior.
