Is that the same one you posted about a while back when you were visiting southern California? Paint looks a lot better in this picture.

Nice! Is it painted with a clear coat?

Yeah I paid the guy to finish it. I don't know what year it is, he is sending me the title.

He wet-sanded the paint, fixed some dings and chips and then sprayed clear. He's a lifelong paint and body guy.

It's 12V. It has 350 engine, TH400 trans. Brakes are drums but new everything and twin master cylinders. Cruises down the road at 65 mph pretty well he says.

I'm going to daily drive it when I am not riding motorcycle.

That answered my question. Old cars like this are super cool but I couldn't see owning a car I didn't drive regularly.

What’s the MPG? And where do you get leaded gasoline these days?

Just messing with you man. Gorgeous ride. Enjoy!

The engine came out of a late 1990s Corvette that burned in an insurance job so it burns unleaded.

I told him my eyes at night are not great and sometimes I have to shuttle my teenager around.

He put LEDs in it.

I like how these earlier models (station wagons too) came in 2-door versions.

Nice looking! Brings back memories for me. I had a '61 GMC ... very similar. Mine was gutless though. It had a 305 V-6 with a Pontiac 3 speed w/ Hurst shifter. It had over 300,000 miles on it when I sold it. Engine was never rebuilt, very reliable but it did go through wheel bearings with its aftermarket offset wheels.

Very nice. It is provably a little late but doing a vinyl film maybe a more practical way to “paint” a vehicle. But what do I know.

In the early 70's, my dad had a company truck like that. I have a pic of it somewhere. Very cool.

Another vote for gorgeous!

Seriously gorgeous paint scheme as well.


Cruises down the road at 65 mph pretty well he says.

I wouldn't be surprised if that's more than a bit of an understatement.

And yes, more pics!






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
