This is not mine. It belongs to someone I have contact with on Facebook. He is a body man in NJ and he blended a two door sport with a wagon. This is his personal car, not a customer's car.  I think he did an amazing job.

Update: The picture poster just told me that this is a photoshop image to see how it would look before he started cutting on the thing. If he follows through with it, I think it will look cool. Anyway, nice photoshop/dreaming skills.

I think I like TorinoMad slightly better, only because the glass isn't as long.

It would be nice to see what it looks like, but I'd make a fastback one first.

That's a photo shop he did or had someone do to make sure it would look right.

A guy told him on one of his post that it wouldn't look right I think that's what made him get a photo done.

Yeah, He started on this car last year. There are some pics of the progress on our Carlisle trip thread. He has a good idea, but this was a sweet wagon before he started.

I agree, it was too nice a wagon to cut up. However, it is his car, so more power to him and I would like to see what it looks like once it is done.

Well, lets not bring up the past. If he can pull it off, then I really would like to see it. The idea is pretty coo...er, neat, and it would be certainly be a one-of-a-kind. As a wagon owner myself, I welcome any promotion our wagons (and all FOMOCO intermediates) can receive.
