    Nice wagon! My Yeoman has a 235 automatic. Runs great and keeps right up with traffic, no problem. I have some spare parts. Let me know if you need anything.

    Thanks and I appreciate it! It was pretty fast when I last drove it in 85. It’s been rebuilt and runs like a sewing machine now. I’m just fixing what’s there and piecing in the rest as time and money allow. We will drive it on short hops next spring as it gets to be more dependable.

    Good one! No we have a “year of manufacture” plate here.
    If you can find an unregistered plate the year your car was built you can register your car to it

    Nice '58 2-Dr Wagon. My first car was a '58 Wagon. A Nomad, that had of course 4 doors. Wish they had continued with the 2 door tradition, but they made them in 4 doors and finally dropped the Nomad name in '62.

    Yes, same here in Texas; Leadslead did so with his '73 Colony Park, the "Butterscotch Barge." I think I have pics front and rear on my other phone.

    Thanks!
    As long as it doesn’t come apart I’ll be ok.
    It was a quick fix for the alternator/generator swap. It for a rav-4.
    The builder has done an excellent job considering what he had to start with. FA83151C-B296-4D5A-9831-4E1D4E4DF51B.jpeg the car has had a rough life but she had enough metal to be bored out one last time.
    It’s not completely stock, it’s not a hot rod, it’s not a custom or rat. We’re in Resurrection Mode…

    While I was polishing the radiator I asked my younger daughter if she wanted to help.
    Her reply was “Why, doesn’t it just go under the hood thingy?”
