    Is this a painting or a doctored photo? Hard to tell. What's that black thingy on the side glass?

    And here's a panel for 'ya. These are real rare in the HHR world, but I saw one yesterday just like this......HHR SS AA5 (AA5 is the option code for a half-panel)

    Sorry Krash but to me those classic car wannabes are an abomination. Horrific.

    Although not a fan of these, I think KK's does look OK...... if I remember has a smooth front end/bumper where as this version reminds me of a cattle guard on a old steam train.

    Yeah - wouldn't mind the power of the SS version, but I hate the way the front end looks compared to the stock version.

    Almost three years ago when in central Illinois I almost bought a red panel HHR. Kind of glad I didn't. Yet my friend has the wagon version in gold and I really like it.
    Also I have a 1948 Chevy panel truck 350/350 auto partially finished as a custom RV puller in my garage just sitting. It also was supposed to been red. Have everything except the AC and ambition to finish. :slap:
    Now that nice 1950 suburban is making me feel bad. I have a nice new straight bumper for it.

    Not exactly a panel truck. It's more a panel delivery. However, I'm posting it, because it's surrounded by plenty of eye candy:

    If that silly bird is only a decal, it could get removed, using a hair-dryer: http://www.motorstown.com/imgs/41316-chevrolet-panel-truck-8.html

    Here's a 4-door International harvester. I wonder what the antenna's for. Maybe, a secret agent deathsquad was commissioned to hunt down interterrestrialal aliens who may have survived spaceship misshaps:

    Dude! :eek3: I want it!!! I'd putter my happy @$$ all over Chicago in that thing with a big @$$ smile on my face. Paint it, and do some etching on the windows. Set up a traveling carving station in the back with my logo carved into on those back windows. Oh, yeah!

    Thanks, Jim! :D Pictures have been saved to my ever growing picture folder. I'm currently at 1500+ plus pictures of car... All but 271 of them are wagons or hearses... My wife calls it my addiction... But I'm not addicted. I can stop collecting pictures of wagons and hearses when ever I want... or when the internet disappears, which ever happens first. :rofl2:

    That thing is perfect!

    You could even fill them with squad motorized bikes for overly-friendly policemen:

    Their engines are nearly identical to those of the DS:

    Well, since you're showing some delivery vans also, here's my old IH Metro. I really miss it.
