    Welcome to the wonderful world of skywagons!!!

    Please post pics!!

    For minor cosmetic parts, you should look at the skylark, cutlass, cutlass wagon or vista cruiser. Or just search of generic "GM whatever" on ebay or other sites.

    I believe the skylark is the base model of the sportwagon, so you'll have some luck there on ebay at least, for more specific parts that you need. Well... at least for the front half. ;)

    :Welcome: aboard John.
    Having owned a '71 Skylark 2-dr HT and being a wagon freak, I've always wanted a '70-'72 Buick Sportwagon. There used to be one in my town, but disappeared before I was able to inquire about it. I know they're few and far between.

    Post some pics of it when you get a chance.
