    Here's my panel truck. When I was surfing, I carried my boards INSIDE the truck. hey, I had plenty of room inside muh truck, and they'd be outta site, and outta danger hiding inside. (plus, I could wisper sweet nuthings to her (my love boat) while I drove ;)

    Hey SMF Speed and Custom, My wagon is very similar to the colors you are thinking about. Its green with a pearl wht top. Its the one in my avatar. Theres also more pics of it on my profile, I just cant figure out how to get them to this post. Check it out, it should give you a good idea of what your wagon would look like.

    Skate, thanks for showing a picture of that again... you know its my favorite surf ride..

    Kiwi, I think that picture of the panel is a true surf wagon, just not a hotrodded one. I think it was RJ that did some surf wagon pictures a few yrs ago. and of course the woodie is and always will be considered a surf wagon, regardless of its look.

    to be a surf wagon, it needs to look like it came from the heyday of surfing, the 60's..

    Just found another picture of my girlfriends wagon from an Ace Cafe event we went to earlier this year. I think it looks like it could have been around in the late fifties, early sixties. It's got a few minor custom tricks done already, mostly tidying up the front end but we've had a bunch of people telling us to go tiki with it, which we're not going to do. All we plan to do is "woodie" it and give it a general tidy up where it's needed, any more would spoil it.

    My 64 Nova Wagon before I took it apart. Going to be a low budget build. Will be fun to take the kids to the beach in this one.

    That's true but the rivers used to catch on fire so that has to count for something

    I had a buddy in high school here in Texas with a Falcon surf wagon. We'd drive it to Daytona or Jacksonville on occasion.

    We called it the BongMobile.

    I'll try to find and scan an old pic of my Alfa squaretail with my surfboard strapped to the decklid.

    Sorry guys, but I wouldn't drive one of these to a dog fight. I'd be as eager to build a surf mobile as I would a Smurf mobile. I couldn't imagine diggin' through the very best Smurfets to mount in my grille. Guess I share John Milner's view on The Beach Boys. Entertaining to look at.........

    You hit it on the head with the San Onofre pic's. Those are the real surf wagons (as I remeber them) in the pic's i.e. VW vans, cheapo wagons, old bread trucks, hand me down cars, etc. Surfers did not generally put much time into their rides.....they were surfing! Although that 55 wagon looks like it could have belonged to a surfer who lived in say...Riverside:D

    I've got an original 34 Woody Surf-Mobile.It really did surf duty in the 60's-90's
    Infact it still has a board on the roof. a Con from Santa Monica.(Hometown when I was born).
    My sis has her own version, which I have to make roadworthy again It's a 65 Falcon originally a Robt. H. Loud Ford-Pasadena car. 200 ci originall a 3spd now a 2sp auto.
    I still have all of the original stuff, bit it to has done surf duty as well as raising a family duty.
    Lastly Bro and Sis own a late model = 91 Trooper with surf and water polo stickers all over the back windows w/surf racks and The Long Board Grotto-Leucadia logo on rt rear window. Modern Surf wagon.

    My Bro Bob surfed in the 60's/70s/80s/90s and ocassionally the milleneum up/down the coast and mosty said that things like Panels and 50's Ford,Chevy and Dodge wagons w/a mattress in the back and black spray painted windows were what the surfers were roaming the coast in.

    Dig all kinds of panels-wagons, show some more.

    I never get the whole no-surfer surfer car thing. I see them in Ohio, Indiana, in New York... surf boards on the roof... no surfable beach for miles.... I dunno.

    But here's some inspiration so this reply won't be a total bust:
