thegreencar Posted September 16, 2008 Report Share Posted September 16, 2008 Hello, my name is Michael, I live in southern California. I have inherited A three generation family owned '72 wagon. It was purchased new by my great grandma with the help of my mom's employee discount(mom hade a sage colored 4door.) It spent the next 20 years in Cave Junction, Or. In 1994 my great grandma died and so my mom received the wagon. We drove it daily for 11 years, until my mom's dad passed away and my mom bought a Nissan Sentra 1.8. The Wagon has been sitting for a couple years and now I want to fix it up. I would like to make it a strong dependable "fuel efficient" car. I don't care about 12 second 1/4 miles. I just want a car that can handle 75 mph up The 5 to Seattle, and hauling friends out to Death Valley for some bike rides. Does anyone have any tips for "should be mandatory" upgrades. I want to upgrade to IE, and eventually a 5spd. Thanks, Michael This is the beast, sadly the sun has taken its toll in graying out the paint. Quote Link to comment
