    I passed up a 68 GTO promo for 125 bucks a few years back and
    I'm still kicking myself. That wagon would probably be a good investment, what do you buy with the money burning a hole in your car pocket when the car is finished?
    I'd like a full width rear mud flap with reflectors all over it and static strips dragging when mine is done.:rofl:

    My car actually had gnarled up curb feelers on it.:rofl:

    You have to have them on both sides just in case you have to park on a one way street or you take the car to England.

    I saw one of those full width rear mud flaps (air brakes) on evilbay. I should have gone for it, it even had the starbursts with gold accents molded into it.

    That wagon promo is a lot of money, most of my real cars cost less back in the day. Car related stuff goes by no common sense rules, boys like their toys.
    I used to get promos when my grandfather would take me to dealers to check out cars when I was a kid. I just played with them and probably burned them or blew them up with M-80's like all my models, that's why they're worth so much now.:biglaugh:

    I kinda dig curb-feelers, I thought about getting them just for a retro-look.

    Well I hate to brake it to ya.....AMT/MPC never made a '73 Chevy wagon promo, only the two door Caprice. The wagon you see on Ebay, thats a Modelhaus cast resin model.

    http://www.modelhaus.com/index.php?c=4041&p=63793

    I bought one, you have to build it, meaning painting, detailing the chrome, adding the wood grain sides.....

    Right now I am in the process of making a hand made factory correct roof rack for mine, since the kit did not come with one. Sure is a pretty looking wagon though you found. I want to make mine into the wagon that was used in the 1973 film "Dying Room Only"....that one was in gold.

    Once I get my wagon done, I put some pics up....
