    Paint and wheels aside...........

    I like it!

    But it is a great example of the trend of the day, very late 80's early-to-mid 90's in these parts.
    Of all the paths you take in life - make sure a few of them are dirt.

      Cool wagon, nothing that a little sand paper and paint can not fix, I could live with the hood and the wheels until something else came along for a good deal. That paint would have to go!

            ya know, it's not colors I would choose for a car; however, with the stupid money people are paying for 60s/50s retro, we will see in our lifetime that style come back and get stupid money as well - between now and then. I'd drive the wheels off it and let the haters hate
            Doing it all wrong since 1966

              90s maybe...a bit too cutting edge to be around in the 80s.

              It was ugly when it was trendy, it's still ugly. But yeah, eventually that particular style of ugly will be trendy again.

                It's really no different than trying to glue them back on after she has her way.

                      Thats nothing 15-20 cans of flat black and some steel rallys cant fix. I hated paint like that back then, still hate it now. The worst is splatter and drips, really hate that crap. Cool wagon other than those two items.

                        I'm with Thump...rattle-bomb the shit out of this thing. Fiberglass bumpers, leave'em in the black gelcoat....

                        I could live with the wheels....a set of Center Lines with the old Pro Stock "snorkel" scoop in place of the L88 bulge would seal the dirtball-fabulous title.
