She doesn't look to rusty, and pretty straight to boot. Got to love the faux wood trim on the sides!
Wish my wife would find me projects, she just gets mad every time I bring one home. After 30 years you would think she would expect it by now.
Good luck with that one Nathan. If you need any stuff I met a great guy down in Longview with tons of stuff.

Nice project! Looks like it's all there. Maybe we'll see it at the 2015 Mini-Regional?

The club has a booth at the Monroe swap meet next month. I'll see if I can spot any when we take a break and walk through.

What sort of condition/price are you looking for?

I think he's like most of us.... he's looking for NOS for $5/set. If a set is acquired locally, I can make arrangements to get them to him.

Lets say I dont want to pay $270 for the set on ebay.

I want driver condition. No dents but a little scratched is ok.

But I'll take nos for $5..

Missed this one.

Pretty cool wagon. Looks like it had all the options you could get.

Looks like you should be able to have it all done by the start of show season this year.

Pictures of the new car

We left home at 3:30 am. Got home at 9:30pm

We found all kinds of weather driving home. Including snow.

Heck I woke up to a couple of inches this morning.
