    Heres my wagon out in the driveway for some pic. With it under the tree the pics turn out too dark and fuzzy. Enjoy

    Lol, mine was 250 but when it came home it was a pleasant suprise to find all the origional chrome in the back that had been re-chromed and wrapped in foam. Sold it all on ebay for 1200 /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Oh, also had some cool 70's green shag carpet inside /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    all mine had in was two mustang 2 seats, a old ass motorcycle tire, along with odds and ends from being the living quarters of some earth muffin for the last 15 years or so,LOL even had a harley davidson headliner and a rubber bed mat in it,LOL although the rubber bed mat was hiding the two holes the size of basketballs. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    but I can't complain it has all the glass and I even have extra hood and fenders and grill for it.

    I'd gladly trade glass for rust anyday,LOL I address the rust by swapping in the blazer floor, instant bolt back on the frame,LOL the fit was way better then anyone could imagine.

    after moving the engine tranny and case back 4" I have about 1" to 1.25" between the radiator and water pump, I have a ford taurus fan that will go in front of the radiator.

    and with this and moving the front axle forward by using the ford 57" my front and rear shafts are both in the ball park of 36"
