Winter is here, time to work on the Crown

Just got the new 16x24 shed built to house the 3 crowns for parts/dismantling.

I thought that I would restore the green wagon back to factory original but then decided to put in a 7MGE from a Cressida and make it a nice daily driver.

Another wagon

Had to do it... bought the 1978 Datsun 810 wagon with only 60k on it. I had to!

Car arrives tomorrow. Can't wait to have a poop brown wagon with wood grain!

Love that old j-tin.

I do love wagons

Saw this one on Craigslist on Sept 25, have to go look at it. LOVE the wood paneling on it. What better way to have a wagon from Japan... make it look American.

Who knows, may add it to my collection. After all it only has 60,000 miles on it.

Long time between posts....

But bought another 67 Crown wagon from Indiana. Been in storage since the mid 80's and in better shape than mine so looks like Old Blue will be the donor car to make the new Minty one nice.

Few dings on the back but less rust than mine that was outside for the last 30 years. This has been in storage for many years so I'll see just how good it is when it arrives in the beginning of March.
