    Thanks :thumb

    We have a 2010 A4 Wagon now, in white, no pictures of it on the computer yet though.

    Which '57 did you get? My wife has a '57 Bel Aire 4-door that we are slowly getting back into daily driver shape. I've been thinking of either a 2-dr (first preference) or 4-dr wagon, but definitely not looking for a Nomad.

    Be sure to post up photos of it when you get it.


    Love those old Pontiac and Buick wagons - shame you don't still have that one.

    Its a 6 passenger Bel-Air, V8, auto. Its from CA and will be completely redone. I just wanted something mostly rust free to start with.

    I had a 2 door 57 Handyman years ago, and a Sedan Delivery. I liked them when I was single and lived in CA, but now I have kids so the 4 door makes life easier. I'd love a Nomad but they are above my budget. :D

    BTW, nice Norge. I have the "slower" silver Norge. :lol3

    Thanks, I love my Norge, she just fits my style of riding perfectly. Now with the Bill Mayer seat, I think I'm good for Iron Butt distances :fpalm

    Since the kids are grown or have their own car, I'm looking for something I can haul stuff in. Not particularly worried about getting into the second seat, but if a 4-dr came up at a good price, I'm not that hard over on a 2-dr.

    Good luck with the project. And don't forget the pics. :freaky

    Nicely equipped - two sunroofs, AWD, decent cargo and a great highway car.

    ...because they can charge more for the same car with plastic add-ons (aka Outback)

    I'd love to find one of these in good shape, but they've mostly rusted away.

    I'd bet it's a one-off custom.

    NICE lookin' Legacy. My sis has had a couple of Subarus and she's not the only one that has told me their reliability drops considerably after 100K, especially with regard to head gaskets. Supporting that belief is the number of ads I've read that mention the head gasket has been replaced. Wassup with that?

    :clap

    My dads mill car back in the day, 70's/80's. He was pretty ballsy, those fuckers would spit on it daily, dump brake fluid on it and even had the tires slashed once. :lol3
