Good Idea: 1966 Buick SportWagon

As a fellow fan (and owner) of home made junk and the Buick SportWagon, I have to admit that I am intrigued by this next car.  The concept of a shift-it-yourself Buick Sportwagon with some Wildcat GrandSport style grill is cool…but the DIY interior and manual single piston drum brakes hold this thing back…well..those brakes won’t hold much back…but you get my drift.  With some TLC this could be a winner. Find this 1966 Buick SportWagon offered for $8500 Langhorne, PA via craigslist. Tip from ME.
