General Information

210 4 door wagon
I started this 57 in 2007 straight out of a junk yard in Wyoming. Lots of work later .. and still a lot to go .. here it is (plus a few intermediate pics) until it gets a little warmer in the Spring when hopefully, I can get it on the road. I'll probably never get it completed to my total satisfaction but it's a start. Then, I'll be giving it to my oldest son, Matthew anyway.
