    GREAT news, Fannie! What a job! I bet when you saw your wagon like that you were torn between cheering and crying! She looks like she's half torn apart to be parts! Still, when she's all back together, you will be dancing in the street!

    A statement best left alone.


    Thanks for all the encouragement guys. Your right Mike, it was a bit sickening to see the pics. I told hubby she looks sooo bad! doesn't see look great! It's all very exciting and I'm sure it'll be very emotional before we're done.

    I believe you. I hunt and peck on my keyboard too. Drives my wife crazy. She types at 75 WPM in Spanish, and 55 WPM in English. I'm on our 3rd keyboard. :evilsmile: Too bad I can't fine her for speeding! :biglaugh:

    I stopped by Denny's Body Shop this morning...eee...the passenger side quarter is on and the other side is almost ready. We had a good discussion about how the dash will be repaired. It all sounds really good. I like Denny he doesn't talk down to me he just explains the best way to do things and how he'll do it. The bad part is I'm not the only one that like's him and his work which is why it's usually a waiting game.

    A couple of pics...

    Fannie, I'm getting very excited for you! If I ever expand the wagon stable, it will be with a '68 or '69 Chevelle Concours Estate. Years ago we had a '69 Chevelle Greenbrier wagon. I really like the lines of this generation. Can't wait to see more of your progress photos!

    :yippee::yippee::yippee:


    Both quarter panels are on!

    She is home and tucked away in our garage. (y)

    Hubby is planning to put the tailgate on to make sure everything lines up well...:oops:

    There is so much more to do...not sure what to do next? I'm going to go and talk to Denny(body guy) to see what he can do next.

    She looks rough but great, I'm so excited. :jumping:
