    I almost daily drive it. I do show off burnouts all the time. Leaving lights and parking lots mostly. If I had more traction something might break, but with 225ís the tires are taking most of the abuse. Too much fun.

    Yes. 2006-2011 crown vic police wheels. I am gonna have a set powder coated white. I just need to buy 2 more. I have 2 extra already. It is not the fastest car out there, but for what it is, itís awesome. I get looks as soon as it fires up. The v8 rumble combined with the small station wagon turns heads.

    I liked the previous white-wheel-treatment better - it was less
    authoritative, and more dismissal.

    If someone said they'd build any car I wanted, for free. 1970 Olds Vista Cruiser wagon with a TH400 and an LS6. Gold on the inside/burgundy on the outside. Keystones and.......I have no idea what tire to go for today.
    I love me some wagons. I built a 67 Skylark ? wagon, similar to the Vista Cruncher,with a powerglided 310 ? ( all aluminum Buick engine ?) back in da day. Later I had a 66 Falcon I crammed a 390/335 in. Death wagon. Nail it and pray. It was all over the road fishtailing.
    My cousin and I did a Vega wagon in ??? 78 or so with a wound tite 283 and a powerglide. Same story.30 MPH kick and pray. F60/14 Springfields. Scary tire
    I pulled the back side windows and oxy act welded( with coat hangers) some metal in to make a "panel wagon" out of the thing.
    The tailgate had " dream weaver" and some bikini chicks airbrushed on it Fun times

    For me it might have to be the last caprice wagon. Had an LS1 already, so easy to fit an LS6. Or a Dodge Magnum.

    Or if money was no option... the mercedes E wagon AMG.

    The Daddywagon needs new front hub bearings on both sides.

    Yeah. It was a tough loss. But I am glad to update. If I can get wheel bearings both sides done in a week then I can make the last Lehigh Valley Cars and Coffee of the season.

    I worked on a few of those Supra's back in the late 70's, early 80's..... very quick, well built little cars.... 130mph plus was achievable.

    The park brakes are currently inop. 1985 Ford LTD station wagon had a park brake pedal all the way to the left in the footwell. I found a way to connect this to setup to the park brakes on the Cobra independent rear suspension initially through the use of lincoln park brake cables, but in the end the pedal did not pull sufficiently to hold the car. Now I am going to convert to the fox mustang park lever along with the complete dash and console.

    They really weren't that small, they weighed in about the same as a 67 Camaro. I knew of a Supra chassis that was used to build a 67 Camaro street rod using a gutted drag racer body and tuned port Corvette engine and trans. Quite the road hugger when it was done.
