    Yeah....and I like that long hair, Steve! I didn't read the caption and I thought that was you TODAY. LOL....that's why I didn't think you were old enough to remember "The Little Engine That Could" !! Even so...I didn't think that book was still around after the 40's. Good lookin' family you have there. And a good lookin' wagon. But stay off the beach! Salt will eat it right up. I lived on the beach. You wouldn't believe the horror stories.

    LoL @ silverfox. I understand the confusion now. Yes indeed, that was 20 years ago.

    I've seen the horrors that even salty ocean air can cause. The romp on the beach was a special treat and we both had a good bath when we got home. :D

    Yup....regarding ocean salt air. I've seen car windows suddenly just drop down inside the doors! I had an ocean front condo and if you hung pix on the wall with metal hooks they would, in time, fall right off the wall. I've seen metal lamps that looked fine but were corroding away and would eventually just collapse. Cars near the ocean rust away from the top down. Unlike our WI cars that rust away from the bottom up.

    Nick are these photos before and after and then after that with the back quarter almost taken off completely??? I'm very sorry if that is the case. I was enjoying the photos and then all of a sudden that slide show had a very bad ending. :cry:

    Good luck getting her all done again.

    The car has been repaired. I do still need a bumper. With the economy the way it is I can't come off $500 for one . I hope to be able to get I this spring.

    Thanks, Bowser.
    I was really set on painting it the original 75 - early 77 dark(er) metallic blue, but it was not readily available. Then I realized that the 66 - 70 light metalic blue was virtually identical to my body paint, I was sold. Since I was shooting for 1968 engine specs, I guess its still technically "correct".

    Oh sweet geekness... you have an ASCII wagon in your sig. Too cool. :D
    I love ASCII and ANSI art.

    Its a free little program I came across years ago called ASCGEN. The site is long gone. You want a copy?

    Forum code won't allow multiple spaces between characters so I had to make an image file out of it instead of posting the raw text.
