second time around!

Okay, so I'm technically not new, but I sold my 66 a little over a year ago, had a 72 C10 short/wide that I did some things to (I hung out at their forum), sold it a couple of weeks ago, and now I'm back to the Impala side of life. Just picked up Big Bertha last Saturday and have plans for her. She's a full figured gal who's large and in charge! Take a look!

Okay, so I can't get the photo to load. Will try again later. She's a 67 Bel Air wagon, 350, 700r4, good solid foundation to build on.

finally, a photo!

Okay, so I think I finally got a photo of Big Bertha to load so everyone can see her in all her glory! 67 wagon, 350/700r4, fun cruiser that gets lots of looks! It's the 9 passenger version with the rear child ejector seat! I use her for my daily driver and my business vehicle for my small business startup--Hot Rod Electric. I repair/replace/upgrade wiring harnesses and electrical systems on classics and customs. Part time right now, but hoping to eventually move to full time.

She's beautiful Steve! Love those old wagons! As kids, we always called the coveted third seat "the way back" and the oldest usually "called dibs" or won the rights to sit there.

Thanks, guys. One thing is true, I get a lot of questions when stopped at traffic lights or when getting fuel. Seems everybody's either ridden in or their parents used to have one of these. Wagons really can be made into hot rods.

Your wagon helps give me inspiration to get my 1965 9 pass wagon back on the road. Maybe this year. Its on the bucket list.

All I can think of is Carrol Burnett's one time only special broadcast send up of the Dallas/Dynasty shows with her sitting in the rear seat of her Chevy Estate wagon after she had lost the Rolls to the bank.

Long roofs are so cool! Have you guys seen what Jason Line did with his '68 Biscayne wagon?

That wagon begs for more attention everytime you go to the garage/barn!
