I really hope updates are coming soon, this is a great thread. Cheers
I always wanted to see that done to a 71' Oldsmobile wagon. I never thought about the Buick, Pontiac or Chevy for that matter. Unlike today's cars, the rear bodywork mattered and man, those things had the most sloping tailgate windows that diappeared into the roof. I keep wondering what year Chevrolet is going to stay awake long enough to finish the rear of the Corvette.
And by the way, the brown color, when I was in seventh grade I had an Aurora A/FX '57 Nomad in brown with silver highlights. I traded it to another fellow enthusiast the following year. As an adult I still have the majority of my grammar school HO cars and I've added new one's as well. But when I went on the hunt for a brown '57 Nomad to replace my long gone mini-monster, I was chukled at by a few know-it-alls..."never gonna happen" they snickered "rarest color they made and if you can find it do you really want to pay up to a couple grand?" Shoulda kept my brown Aurora Nomad. It was, after all, crazy cool looking. I still have the car I received in trade for it. I suppose back then I had to have it. Short story long, Your two door wagon would look awesome in a burnt metallic cinnamon. And there's my two cents! Great job and Happy Motoring! ~ Steve

Hey guys! I'm still around, stopped working on my wagon project for about a year, but now back on it, finally moving forward. Enjoying it again. Good to be back on V8Buick forum too! David
I personally wish you would get this done. My 70 Sporty is dying to have this done to it.
Hey Dave! Glad to see you back here and on SWF. Since you've last been here, I bought a 72 Estate Wagon too! Pretty much a plane jane, but cool anyway.
Lets see some pics!
Hey Brad, I was looking at your pics of it, very cool! It looks to be in very good condition! David
For a lowly wagon (who would like those ? uzzled you've probably got the biggest following on the board for a custom job ...
... SO GET BIZZY !!!
Glad to see you're back at it :beers2:
Glad your Back Dave!!!
had hoped you had not given up on this project, you really have done SO good so far!! the wagon really looked great and have really been wanting more!!! I should think that anybody who is into wagons has been lusting after the anticipated completed product just as I have!! looking forward to detailed updates over this summer!!!
Just adding my "Attaboy!" for support. This is one of my favorite threads on the forum.
Hi David! My name's Gabe and I'm near Ft Lauderdale. I was in my office searching the forums and I noticed your project. I just finished reading every thread and am glad you are still working on the wagon. You are motivating! Keep up the great work and PLEASE don't give up on this project. Your metal working skills are amazing, and you have the imagination for it.
I'm anxious to see your progress and please keep us posted!!
Best of luck!
wow its awesome the **** people will do to their cars when they are board!!!!
David, just now I read your thread here - very interesting project ! Im really curious how this wagon will look like when finished.
To the discussion about the interior color combo I added 2 photos of my 71 BC convertible.
I love this combo of blue and white. Guess this could match your paint and roof color combo just perfect !
Wish you all the best with the next steps to get the car on the road !
I can't believe I've never noticed your awesome thread but Erik recently posted a link (he posts great stuff). So many people have already chimed in but X 2 on all of them! Press on my good man! Shades of Xcamino...
i haven't been here in a long time, and wanted to see if any progress?
