    Yeah I gotta admit, I'm not much of a GM wagon guy, but something about this (Prol the color) does it for me. I honestly would like to have it. I'd attend to the rust first, and boy, if the time and finances were right, it'd be neat to do a Joe JMT type renovation on this as a tourer.

    Imagine havin' the 455 and be able to adapt on AOD trans behind it to get you in the low to mid 20's MPG wise?

    I think I'd pack a suitcase and a good cooler and we'd make the left turn in Albuquerque and get lost in Colorado, Wyoming and the Dakotas for about 10 days......

    I keep coming back to this car. There's something that's pulling it to me....

    Yeah it does have a real appeal to it. It just sickens me that derby guys look at these for destruction. I do hope a wagon guy in the Northeast buys it, if nothing else for a driver car.

    Family Politics and Garage Space don't agree with me so I'm out.

    I’ve bought cars in the east before, and I’m in NM, but garage space is really important here. The sun burns em up if they’re out. It would be a good project for a high school, or jr college shop type class, especially here in NM, where these kids have never seen, or done rust repair to that extent.

    What is that car in the garage in the background? Is that a Versailles?

    Sure looks like that to me..... hope it’s a ‘79 or ‘80 when they extended them. By the looks of the wire wheel covers I’d say it’s a later one. Had a chance to buy a ‘77, triple Wedgewood blue out of an Estate in Santa Fe a few years back, but it reminded me too much of my mom’s ‘77 Monarch.
