Well, on Saturday Russ and I went over to Wyotech to help Bill with his Brat, he had picked up an 81 wagon with 90,000 miles on it for the motor, and so we put the motor in the brat, and I bought the wagon offa him for $50 :-) so I now have an 81 2WD GL wagon, nasty oxidized blue.. with a rusty driver's door, but every thing else is solid, just the driver's door is rustified on the bottom. I'll upload some pics after dinner...

well its no longer a nasty oxidized blue color, this baby SHINES!! The originaly clearcoat is still good underneath the oxidation and so we went to Wally World and picked up some rubbing compound and started to buff the baby back to life.

hey that hatch got hauled off today, but that 80/81 wagon is still here, you'll be needing to get the stuff off it pretty quick before that gets hauled off too. Otherwise you'll need to wait til the red wagon that was in the shop is ready for scrap-3 months.

okay I'm putting the pictures in my Webshots album, the URL is http://community.web.../hondasucks1982 it takes a little bit for them to show up, so if the "81 Wagon" album doesnt' show up in there, then just wait and it should be up in a few hours to a day after I post this (8:30 Wyoming time, 10/14/04
