This is my third ea81 wagon, and by far the nicest. I picked it up from the original owner here in Vermont (she and the car original came from New York) They had a summer home here, and the car was used here in the summer for the majority of its life due to the ability to make it up the very steep and muddy hill they used to live on. The car came into the shop I work at about a year ago needing some exhaust work. I about S*&# bricks when I saw it. I can't remember the last time I saw an ea81 other than in my driveway especially one this nice, or even still on the road. Anyway I preformed the repair, and informed her I would be interested in it if she ever choose to sell it, not pushing in anyway because I didn't need another project. About six months go buy I end up selling my other ea81 wagon (the cali wagon, a few of you may remember that build) and she called me about a week later saying she was moving back to New York, and asked If I would be interested in the car, and here we are. Plans are to keep it mostly stock with some drivability and performance modifications.
picking it up
Tomorrow my dad is trailering it to work so I can build a new exhaust from the engine back.
