I almost put flames on it but changed my mind after looking at my design for an hour. So glad I did delete them.

I will post more pix's once I get it back in the shop.
I want to put the new windshield in tomorrow and paint the hood and then I will post more pix's.

Looking good. So this was a complete color change with a two-tone scheme. Looks like you de-trimmed it, so to speak, as far as the previous woodgrained trim.

Well kind of,.......... I took the original molding and painted it body color, and polished the piece over the front wheel. Here is a picture of what it looked like this morning. I just have to paint the hood and the tail gate and the paint work will be done.

Well I changed the rim and tire set up and went with a Buick Turbine wheel off of an older Buick Park Avenue. Just took these last weekend and it looks dam good with the fall folliage.

Wow! very nice work! I'm glad you decided against the flames:cool: now all you need is a really bitchin' powerplant for it. Say, maybe a twin turbo rat motor with efi??:D

Thanks Guy's! As for the power plant I have a 68 Buick GS 400 motor sitting here with dreams of sitting between the wheel wells. And maybe top it off with that fuel injection unit set up from T/A Perfomance.

Cool, another wagon owner! I have a 87 Caprice Classic I'm slowly working on.

You know what? I just looked at it real close for the first time and I have to give you :judge_10: also. With the subtle two tone, you have preserved the lines of the car while ditching the hokey wood grain. The result is a clean, contemporary look.
I was recently looking for a pickup truck or station wagon. I was looking at a couple of those Roadmaster wagons, and I was tempted to buy one too. I thought I could do something about the woodgrain crap. Now I see how good it looks without the woodgrain.:)
