Re: 1967 buick special wagon

Still loving it! As a younger guy I overlooked the wagons but I've seen so many cool ones in the last 10 years if I had more room, time, and $$ I'd be looking for one. Guy down the road from me has a 69 malibu wagon that is cooler than the other side of the pillow.

What you are building will turn the heads of the motor crowd everywhere you go.

Re: 1967 buick special wagon

40 years ago I bought a '67 Chevelle wagon. It was a 283 with a power glide and had been the delivery car for the first parts store I worked for. I put Corvette rally wheels on the back and Nova wheels up front with baby moons. I miss it but that was before wagons got so popular.

Re: 1967 buick special wagon

Well good news and bad news. I got another windshield installed. They covered it as warranty. I cut off all the pins and screws for the trim clips and told the guy installing the glass to fill in the gaps with the urethane like a birthday cake. I told them about the dimensions of the channel I installed being incorrect and they trimmed the glass for clearance where it was a little tight, so it wouldn't get pinched if the body flexes for any reason.

When I left the windshield shop, I drove to greg Smith equipment sales and picked up a 4-post lift for the shop. (My dad's friend met me there with his car trailer) On the way up there, it rained and having no wipers, wiper arms, rear glass or rear wheel tubs, it was raining inside the car as well as outside.

On the ride home, I saw a puff of smoke and thought it from the exhaust of the car in front of me. But then I saw another puff, and it clearly came from under the hood, and I could smell burning plastic. I pulled over and the clip for the abs module was burning. It turns out the engine cover I put on was pushing the spark plug wire up against the oil dipstick bracket. The plug wire caught fire and caught the abs module on fire. I removed the engine cover and put it the fire and drove home on 7 cylinders. So now I need plug wires.
