just think this might be a cool topic to start. i know lots of guys like the 20"+ wheels and flashy paint but this is for the older style like 15" smoothies with whites, astro supremes, satin paint... you get my point.

i will start it out with a pic of my wagon




oh and sorry if someone has started this topic as i have never seen it if they did.

Skirts are available on ebay. They are really crude, but can be finished nicely with some care.

I see an OCC grille...nice job.

mine is a custom cruiser grill, i just shaved it. i got the supremes from summit racing, they are 14's and took some grinding to get them on but i had to have the 14's. right now i put my drop spindles back on and im runnin 15" cragar smoothies but i think im gonna go back to the supremes, i hate cleaning then(esp with the skirts) but they look so good.

pats wagon convinced me to get the skirts, im not to happy with the side latches right now, i need to do something else. pat you think you can post a link to your mods you did to yours?

jonw i love that wagon so much, i need to redo my wood but i just had a baby so its on the back burner for now.

capriceutah, did you cut your whites or did you have someone do them, if you had it done please let me know who, thinkin about some steelies with cut whites as big as i can get a reg tire.

here is mine right after i bagged it with steelies

There is a guy that does it locally for 15 bucks a tire. He has an old skool machine

awesome project! my next project is gonna be a late 50's wagon, most likely a ford, i know this is a chevy site but i dont hold one make over another.

mine at camp-n-drag last year


next two are the same wagon, after it was painted olive it was hit then fixed and then parted out, kinda sad cause it looked sick
