    Spartan, I am really psyched for you and your project. That'd be great if you get it all done, or at least a lot done, by the reunion this Summer. I'm sure your family will flip out!! You're getting some great tips and I hope they work for you.
    Do me a favor and let me know how your hunt for weatherstripping goes. I thought mine had finally ended a few months ago, but after I ordered them and they arrived, they were for a 92 Grand Marquis; they didn't even make wagons in '92. Anyway, let me know if you have any success and the best of luck to you. Seems like you have a great starting point.

    Man, I can't believe I missed this! I think it's fantastic that you were able to find a car that fit your needs. That is going to be one heck of a surprise at the family reunion.
    Thanks for sharing the adventure so far and be sure to keep us updated on your progress as you go along.

    It will be this one... It's the only one I could find with the actual car in the background. This would have been Easter of 1984 - we had just gotten the wagon and drove it from Detroit to my grandparents in Myrtle Beach. I'm the punk in the striped shirt.

    Will for sure have a camera going when my Dad walks out...
