    Thank you. :)

    Thank you, she is certainly built for the long haul! ;)

    That's why I built mine and then started a thread! Critics can say all they want. Remember, the one's who criticize are the ones who don't have it in them to finish their own sh!t. :D Move the wrenches, not the mouth.

    Thank you. :)

    Like McDonalds? :D

    Thank you. ;)

    I remember in the 50s, hotrodders scorned station wagons and would never consider one for a hotrod. They are suitable for moms and groceries also used on vacation, but a hotrod?? No way! they are too big and heavy.

    Hey man, I'm buddies with John Dodson, and just recently bought a '61 Nomad. You're probably going to hate me, but it was the car that John Whitworth had that your buddy Tony took you over to see a couple years ago.

    I just got lucky and caught him at the right time when he was wanting to sell it.

    Anyway, I LOVE what you've done with Old Gold. What's the details on the interior ? Is that a custom built setup ?

    I'm probably going to be wearing you out with questions so if you don't mind, I appreciate any help you can give me. LOL !

    could you post a few pics of the tailgate as you would see it sitting in the 3rd row? also how hard is it to get to the gas tank?

    Those chrome air deflectors are not that little. They are at least a foot long. Back in the day they were probably a J.C. Whitney "go faster". They just don't do it for me. Not on my wagon.
