1957 Buick Caballero Estate Wagon

Summerville, SC

 

I fell in love with this body style after seeing a beautiful example at a national car show in 2009.  I've been looking for one since then, but got really serious after seeing another one at the NSRA Nationals in 2017.  I finally found one of my dream cars and purchased it in June of 2018.  It proved to be a rust free example built in California and found in a barn in eastern Ohio that made its way to Louisiana.  It's currently being transformed into my long distance cruizer that my wife and Iplan to enjoy crisscrossing the United States with.

2009 Chevy HHR SS Half panel

Spring Creek NV


My wagon is a 2009 Chevy HHR SS half panel.  The half panel option was available only in 2009 for the SS trim and only 199 of them were built. I had bought a base model LS half panel new in 2008 before the SS was available but always wanted one, and after getting rid of my first one the search started in 2010 for the perfect one. I ended up finding my Aqua blue metallic half panel SS with the even harder to find manual and performance package in 2018 in San Diego, a little over 700 miles away. Told the guy I was flying down there to pick it up and then drove home, to north eastern Nevada, and have loved it since. It now sports a custom true flame paint job, lowered, and getting performance parts to up the horsepower and fun factor of the 4 cylinder turbo engine. 

this is the first picture I took of it on the day I picked it up, and how it sits now.

My 1996 Buick Roadmaster Estate Limited Station Wagon

New Driver

Attached are pictures of my 1996 Buick Roadmaster Estate Limited Station Wagon.  I purchased the car over 10 years ago from a small used car dealer in Seneca Falls, New York.  It had 89,000 miles at purchase and currently has 145,000 miles.  The car turns heads everywhere it goes.  The 260 horsepower LT1 V8 performs flawlessly getting up to 25 miles per gallon on road trips.  We have driven this car 3 times round trip from Buffalo, New York to Orlando, Florida.  It has automatic climate control, dual power leather reclining seats with lumbar, power windows, locks, antenna, AM/FM stereo with cassette player, tilt steering column, tailgate that swings open and drops down, aluminum wheels, power steering and front disc brakes, rear window defogger, gran touring suspension, and traction control.  All options still work as new.  The glass windows in the roof with the luggage rack combined with the vinyl wood exterior trim and white wall tires give the car an outstanding look.  It rides as good as my 4 Cadillac Fleetwood Broughams and is always a pleasure to drive.

It is the second Roadmaster Estate I've owned and this one is the best.  I plan on keeping this car as long as I can drive.

1985 Mercedes Benz 300TD Turbodiesel

 

Location: Baltimore, MD

 

Meet Helga the golden wagon!  Originally a Diplomats car, this W123 wagon is different from the U.S. versions of the same car imported for sale in the late ‘70s to mid ‘80s. Short bumpers, flush headlights, and a rear fog light set it visually different. Helga came with some interesting factory options such as a full underbody rock shield for the engine compartment and transmission, 15 inch wheels with hubcaps, ABS, orthopedic front seats, animal pet gate/privacy shelf, three point cargo anchors, and a rear heater for the two occupants in the third row jump seat.  Ready for the Autobahn or domestic road trips/daily driving, this wagon probably has close to 400K miles on the original drivetrain and is a blast to drive.

Our wagon is a 1987 AMC Eagle, which was the last year for a true AMC. It was 1 of 612 wagons built  that year. We purchased it from the original owners family in North Bay  Ontario in July  2009. She had  bought it as a "demo" after being driven by the plant manager of Brampton Ont.  assembly plant( same plant that the Dodge Challanger is made now)  for the 1st 6 months & we have documentation to shows that. My wifes family had a 78 Concord when she was 10 that they traded in 82 , which caused her to cry when they left the lot that day without it. We have always liked the underdog or orphan cars or anything that wasn't mainstream, so when we came across the add for the Eagle we knew we had to become its new caretaker.  It had been stored for 10 years when the owner passed, but required very little  to make it road worthy again. Everytime we take it out we get comments such as "what is it?, they had a family member that had 1, wow- the original s.u.v./crossover,geez forgot about them, haven't seen 1 of those in years". It is also a very fun & economical car to drive.FB_IMG_1599324159421.jpgFB_IMG_1599324147761.jpgFB_IMG_1599324117068.jpg

I found my 1964 Chevelle Wagon at a Mecum Auction a few years ago. It had some work done to it, but needed more. (Are they ever finished ?).  I loved the Red on Black pallet and the 3rd row seat look, but the solid lifter 327 with the Muncie 4 speed is what makes me love to drive it.
