    Hello All! I got a Christmas Gift early today. Last summer I was asked to have my wagon filmed for a new webshow called "Wheel Love". We spent an afternoon running around Austin filming, and then I didn't hear much else. Well today I was contacted and sent the link, and it's a real hoot! Ha!

    Here are a couple links. One to YouTube and one to the Facebook page. I love it and think it really represents our wagons well! Feel free to pass it around!

    I hope all the wagon folks give this video a look. I really tried to share how I feel about wagons in general, and their owners.

    Also the guys at Wheel Love are great. They are just getting started but it's a neat program.

    It was such fun making this! Enjoy!

    Glad you liked it! They filmed that last summer and then I never heard back...wondered what happened, and then out of the blue I was notified it had been added to their Webpage and on YouTube. I think they did a great job!!

    Oh and everyone knows how anal I am about my car...well in the opening scene when they are driving my wagon the rattling you hear in the background is their camera equipment in the cargo area, and NOT my car! Ha!

    Feel free to share the video around. Their Cadillac one is great too. Fun Stuff!

    Tom Hanks? Nope, but I'll take that as a compliment!

    Be careful Mike, it's not easy looking like someone famous. I am often told I look like Brad Pitt! :biglaugh::biglaugh::biglaugh:

    Ok, well maybe nobody says that but that's what they are thinking! Just a slightly jumbo petite Brad Pitt! :biglaugh::biglaugh::biglaugh:

    Mike that was great. Thanks for letting us see it and showing your love of station wagons. As for how you guys look, you are all unique in many ways but I don't see a Tom Hanks or Brad Pitt among you.
    Maybe T-man resembles Si on duck Dynasty!:biglaugh:

    Yeah, they are. And the places you had to get your parts from, well, that's just United States Represent.

    It's totally true! The front bumper trim came from wagon folks in Washington State, New Hampshire and Georgia, and the grill came from Florida! A good friend of mine went and pulled the new fender off a salvage yard car for me as well, amazing! Wagon folks are great!

    Yeah, when you get like-minded people together, most of the time, the self-imposed barriers come down. I find the same cameraderie in the Full Size Bronco and Ranchero forums, and the vehicles are all iconic enough for people off the street to say they had one in the family, or an uncle/aunt, grandma/grandpa, brother/sister, etc., had one.

    The "jumbo petite" description cracks me up man. I saw it in the santa thread too. They should have a specialized clothes store for you guys like the "big and tall" places. I often have trouble finding clothes that fit. The last time I checked I was 6'6 , 190lbs soaking wet and before my morning constitutional. Too bad there are no "tall and small" stores:rofl2:

    Yeah, if I wasn't morbidly obese, I'd be exactly like you...6'6" and 190# soakin' wet. But except your leg length, you should be able to find shirts with the "LT" or (if you're a medium) "MT" designation. Trousers, you have to special order, IIRC, that are basically untailored on the legs. I remember Dad buying me Navy enlisted bellbottoms because the clothing and small store on base carried the long-@$$ed dungaree trousers for us tall floggers. I wore a 36W/34I back then when I weighed 220#.
