Hi I just picked up this wagon for $300 a couple months ago. Its an 83 auto fwd with only 54,xxx miles. Since I am in Indiana it does have a little bit of rust, but I love it.

Nice looking ride! Congrats on the cool score! I like the stock rims, they look good with the chrome rings and centers caps.

Nice ride Steve, helluva deal. Stupid question: It looks cool but why'd you lower it? Not gonna be off-roading in FWD? To The Dude, what are "pugs?"

I guess it's a stupid question... :P

PUGS: wheels off of a Peugeot 505(and 405 i believe). its about the only other car with that bolt pattern (4x140) and they are a good option for 14" and 15" rim

do a search on here and you will find alot of info/pics etc regarding. also search for info on the pug lug nuts if you are buying a set of pugs with out lugs.

I think the wagon has a pretty sweet stance since its FWD.

Ah, got it. Thanks for that. I'm not new to old vehicles, but there's a lot out there I don't know.
