Just created a longroof account, been looking at this forum for a couple years though. I've been on the Impala SS forum since I bought my first RMW in 2010. I now own two 94 wagons. One is my DD the other is basically a parts car. I'm kinda a poor college kid so I can't really afford an SS and like having the ability to carry 7 of my friends around in the wagon. My overall plan is to do an Impala clone on it and eventually build the motor a little.

So since I have a special place in my heart for B-Body wagons and have never actually owned a sedan, I thought it was high time to get on the Longroof too. Nice to have a little more wagon specific community here since its only a small part of the ISSF.

Here's an overview of my wagon:

1994 Roadmaster Estate, White, de-wooded, shaved trim
-Stock LT1/4L60E
-Homeplate/firstbase delete
-Home depot intake with K/N open element
-Tubular trailing arms
-Hotchkis Bars
-Flowmasters
-PCM Tune for harder shifts, speed de-limiting etc
-All-Aluminum Radiator and 160* hypertech Tstat
-SS 17" wheels
-Caprice front bumper and grill support
-SS Grill
-DVD Stereo, JL 12, 1200w sony amp
-Hooker super comp headers ready to go on, awaiting further exhaust work
-Set of 9C1 hoses ready to go on
-G80 lsd ready to go in as soon as I can get some gears with a reluctor (looking for 3.23 or 3.42)
-B&M Shift kit and 4L60E rebuild kit awaiting transmission rebuild

In the near-ish future:
-Stiffer springs (Have an extra set of SS springs, but have decided rear will be far too soft)
-Shave remaining trim
-Prep and paint, possibly two tone
-Guages, tach, oil pressure, tranny temp, volts
-Window tint
-Larger free flowing exhaust (maybe with x-pipe) and install hookers
-EGR and airpump delete
-Motor rebuild with cam (maybe a CC502?), beehives, and roller rockers
-A healthy amount of nitrous (iron heads FTW)
-Beef up trans
-SS seats if I can find some cheap
-Might redo headliner and carpet at some point, its pretty well worn. This will be a pretty low priority though. I'm all about function over form.... well that and I'm broke ha.

Who knows, maybe something crazy down the road if I come across a bunch of cash I don't need for anything else. I'd like to do a forged stroker motor with some nice heads, but no way I'll be able to afford that anytime soon.
