    Well here's my 70 estate 455 just dug it out of the snowbank today. I've always wanted a wagon, i think they look pretty cool with some nice wheels and a bitchen exhaust job. It's going to my buddies next week to be painted, then i dont know what i'll do with it, i've got a 12bolt posi(4.88)out of a 1966 impala. It needs some interior work to.

    Im missing a couple chrome pieces on the drivers side but other than that thats it. Its got the usually door dings and a couple small wiskey dents (the guy parked it after he got a dwi in 91). The car has never been painted befor its got 2 small rust holes in it ones on the rear door under the Buick emblem and the other is on the drivers rear corner fender, thats it. Im the 3rd owner it was a california car till 1989(then to minnesota), i've got all the paper work thats ever been done to the car, gas fill ups, oil changs, new rad, stuff like that. I found all the reciepts and a note book with all that stuff in it when i took the bench seat out. Im going to paint it blue again with some dark tinted windows some am racing wheels and just drive the crap out of it.

    Cool car. Beats the heck out of my wife's Taurus wagon. I'd check the condition of the frame, if you haven't already. The full size frames from 69 and 70 cars were notorious for rotting near the boxed bends, even if the body isn't too bad. Probably not too bad seeing as though it was a CA car.

    I'm jealous.

    Yea cars been parked scince 91, i'll dig out the last gas slip with the miles on it and show you guys (i think it got like 12mpg). I've had the car on the hoist and the thing looks like new, i cant believe it was parked outside for about 15yrs. Im taking it back to my shop this weekend i'll post some pics of the frame. This is my first bigblock Buick, i've had a few mid 80's regal's and some 90's park ave's this thing should turn a few heads for a wagon. I know its big and heavy but i want to get this thing runnig good enough to smoke the hides and beat a few loud mouths around town.
