Looks like Goodguys Puyallup a few years ago. One of my can't miss events.

My 'surf wagon in the 60's was a 1941 Willys mordor sedan with roof racks on it. We'd stack the old malibus in 2 stacks of 3 tall and six of us would ride to the local beaches in her. I don't have a single pic of that car, but I do have one from that era I will try and find. here's another 'original' pic though....


Cheers, Glen.

The owner is in the same 'car club' as me, the So Cal Novas. We just did a cruise up the coast last Saturday.

There are some more pics here:

I just did a bunch of T Shirts for the guys over on Steves Nova Site (The Longroof Society).

If you can't find a old one, get one build. They do amazing work. Wood kits' etc.

A 42-48 Chrysler Town & Country Sedan would be the ultimate surf-woodie, especially a 42 with the really bold trim and the barrel back with dual opening doors.

Here's my old hillbilly surf wagon, I only took it surfing once. Didn't work too well though, it just sank! It took the towtruck all day to pull it back outta the ocean!

D'oh ... my bad ... plywude's Plymouth wagon is actually a 1951 (not a '52).
