I have owned my Wagon since mid 1996:D Check out my pictures I have taken over the years. But today was the best you will have to see the last (3)pictures and you will see why:yes:
I wanted to build a family cruiser something I could put (4) people in it and go any where with a nice motor,air and dependable and look cool doing it:eek: I think I have done what I set out to do and more.....
When I got my wagon the first (kind of Show was Vets in Long Beach) the first person I met was RK and of course he wanted to buy it:yes: When I got the Wagon it had a 194 (6) with a glide. I drove it for a couple of years like that. Then I yanked the 6 and the glide out and put the TPI and 700-R4 in it just in time to make the 1998 Hot Rod Power Tour. ( Long Haul Gang) Then in 1999 I tore it a part and it came back to what it is today:D I have put a lot of miles and broke some parts on the Wagon since then and that's what brings it to history part (at least in my book):yes: Today the Wagoon turned 100000 miles on it coming home from the LA Roadster Show in Pomona Cailf.:ragtop:I hope you enjoy my pictures I have taken over the years:D
It still has that new car smell..........OPPS! THAT WAS A FART:rolleyes:

Hey Mark, I love your wagon. You've done a great job with it. I just hope mine comes out as nice and clean as yours did.
How was the show out there?

It took you 10 years to put 100,000 on it? That seems like a lot, but when the car isn't your daily driver that sure is a TON of miles. It's awesome to see that you get use out of your wagon. After getting to sit in it and listen to the stereo I know why you drive it so much! It's either that or you're just a wagon lover. I have liked that car since I first saw it at Frisco's almost 10 years ago.

Glad to have met you when you first got your wagon, watched what you've done to it over the years, enjoyed cruising with you to numerous outings, and yesterday having fun driving to the Mexican restaurant and LA Roadsters Show, when your '67 was only 15 miles from reaching the 000000!!! Wanna sell your low-miler now? Congratulations Mark, RK

Mark, actually with all the burnouts you have done over the years, that is not a true 100,000. Probably more like 50,000. The good news: you get to celebrate again in another 10 years :devil::D.

Congrats, car is sweet and very cool that you drive it every where :yes:.

Congrat's man but your really making it tuff on me. I have been wanting to drop TURBO on my car and making it a "LITTLE" more street friendly. You know take some gearing out of it and put a little bigger gas tank in it. Trust me it's and idea I have been thinking about since I pulled my old motor combo out of the car. Again Congrat's to you for building such a nice ride.

Excuses, excuses........try 3.73's, 14.5-1 compression, an 8" 6000 rpm converter, 3-1/2" exhaust, no interior, and listening to my whiny brother from Los Angeles to Nashville, Tenn.!!
If not for the help of Adolph Coors and his medicine.............
