    i think you should save your money for another. It looks like it once was a real drag car or a poor representation of one. The wheels are strange.. looks like FWD wheels on the front and generic steel truck wheels on the back. The paint, lettering, and decor all look wrong somehow.. Like he went the cheapest fastest route to get some effect, and in the end it didn't work.

    Looks like something you would see at a drag strip in Sweden. I'd pass.

    A 68' Opel Wagon might be cool on its own, but that one doesn't look like it was finished off well.
     
  11. looks like a yugo
     
  12. Well I think it's a neat looking little wagon and if YOU like it and the price seems fair go for it.Everett was my old stomping grounds back in the early 60's.Hung out at the Big Burger on the Parkway near Chelsea Stadium.

    Hmmm, looks remarkably like a LADA.
    Could be kinda sorted, matte black, decent wheels, blower,... but would have to be cheap. How are parts for one of those things?

    But I think it would take some work to get that one to look as cool..

    I'm pretty sure I've seen that Green Wagon on the 'bay.

    Hell I'd rock that for awhile. Always up for new ideas and I could add it to my growing list of "cars i've driven that you don't see very often anymore".
     
  20. I really don't think so.
