Long time no see, everybody! So since my OCC has been off the road since November so as to keep it out of the winter, I've been suffering some serious wagon withdrawal. Not having a wagon just plain sucks. So, bought this cause it was cheap-ish:








Here's the details:

I was $600, it's a '94 tow pack car, w/ 187k (20k on trans), has rust holes in frame on the bottom by where you jack up the rear of the car, and the usual rust in the quarter panel (2" x 6" hole). It looks awful, but having this for a while will allow me to have a wagon, AND fix the rust issues on the OCC and get her all new paint.

Sounds like a good plan, Lynol.
At that price, you can part it out and maybe make a few bucks on it..after the OCC is back on the road!

Looks like you did alright for the price, I paid a little more for the Rustmaster and it was in much worse shape rustwise. This is a good beater wagon turned parts car Very Happy

If you get really ambitious, you could swap the drivetrain to the OCC.

I'm picking it up Saturday... looking forward to cleaning it up and assessing the rust. If the Posi rear works correctly, I'd like to try and keep it through this winter. I hated not having a wagon all last winter; first year in my tenure of driving that I've had only sedans on the road. Oh, and check this out, on the way home I got passed by a '93 or '94 Fleetwood Hearse. Still operated by a funeral home too. It's one of those fancy ones with the raised window frames on the doors. Tried to catch up to him again to get a pic of the front, since that's really the only way I knew it was a Fleetwood, but he was hauling a$$... then got off this exit.

What's the hurry? No matter how fast he drives, dude in the back will always be referred to as 'late'. Wink

Speaking of not having a wagon... sooner or later I will post up pics of how I put a 22' ladder in my 9C1 last night.

Nice toy for $600. I would be worried about the rust though.

I need to post pics of the yard lumber / topsoil mine hauled...

The rust doesn't bother me much, I've driven some bad wagons before, and this is nothing compared to some of them lol! (the '96 Rustmaster for one) That said, I'll be this wagons last owner. I'm hoping to get 7-8 months out of it. If I do, I'll be happy. I'm going to post some pics of the rust once I get it home this Saturday.

Got the car home OK on Saturday. The slight water pump leak the car had when I looked at it turned into a serious leak, so Dave (95BRMW) and I changed it the parking lot before we left. The car then made it about 5 miles before mis-firing, which ended up being an incorrectly routed #7 cyl. plug wire. That plus totally shot shocks and strong cross-winds made for a fun ride. I have some cleaning to do and I'll take some pics of my new piece of junk.
