The Newest Member to the "Long Roof Club"

After a few years looking for the "right" wagon to transport my daughter and wife to car shows, I found one about 20 minutes from my house.

Now, how would a wagon looked if GM built an LS5 SS in 1971. I may have the answer!!!

It will be in my garage tonight!!!!!

Great looking wagon! I have often thought that I would be money ahead to get one already done. Apparently I enjoy beating myself up on them.

LOL......it is much cheaper to buy 'em done!!! This is the second Chevelle based vehicle that I have bought complete. The first was my El Camino. I still did things to improve the El Camino and I will do the same to the wagon during the winter......

NICE WAGON....... The long roofs are a growing bunch. If the 2 door guys start to mess with us, We can circle the wagons and fight-em-off. The " DUKE " always said Wagons YOOOOOooooooooo!

Re: The Newest Member to the "Long Roof Club"

Hi Steve, I'm sitting at a High school freshman football meeting the other night and a friend asks me how my wagon project is going? I said ok. He then says my wifes cousin just bought a wagon and begins to show me pictures on his phone of your new ride. (Scott and Kristine Sperbeck) Small world. By the way the wagon looks Awesome. I have a 70 wagon that i'm working on and a 70 ss396 that i have had since 1987. So our chevelle stories are kind of similar. I also like your fathom blue 70. Go Longroofs
