    Hi, so I have these two Satellite Station Wagons & I love them to death... a '72 that's just sittin' because local law enforcement started to recognize it, and a '74... Everything works fine on the '74 but the brakes, which explains why the front grill is all smashed in... Anyway, I've got two wagons...

    ... oh, wait. It says Welcome Wagon, not Station Wagon. Wow, what a n00b. :sFun_doh2:

    I dunno, man. This would be the kind of low rent porn you might find at your buddy's house... and then you could never really look at him the same way again...

    Well, these are the least ugly photos I've got available at the moment (the '74 of course.) The car needs a lot of bodywork but is basically solid. You can see the tippy-tail of my '76 Duster in the background of the front view. I don't have any good digital or digitized pics of the '72 at the moment.

    This car has road wheels (painted silver) and is wearing 225/70/R-14 Cooper Cobras at the moment. KYB at all four corners. Front sway bar yes, rear sway bar no (at the moment). It's got a 400 4bbl/727/9.25" (police package) out of a '77 Monaco Wagon in it; I had to swap K-frames since this is an original 318 car. All suspension parts from the Monaco as well. We actually get 2 MPG better with the RB engine than we did with the LA, believe it or not, running the same carb (early 90's Carter AFB). Mopar M-1 dual plane intake. Mopar Performance distributor. G. P. Sorenson Blue Streak coil. My cousin made me a custom bracket for A/C delete. Dual exhaust with NOS Blackjack headers (first thing that happened was all that paint burned right off them). The interior is pretty nice, but not perfect. The car runs and drives great, but the brakes... ugh... the brakes...

    I'd love to find some clean bumpers for this thing. Oh, yeah, and about three grand for paint.

    If we made it Brooklyn Brewery Chocolate Stout it'd be a little of both. :D

    Sadly all Mopars are off the road until after salt-season. We used to have this brown '73 Coronet four door that I bombed around in for a couple of years, mostly as a winter beater. That thing was fun, it had a good cam and big block suspension all around. Again, no pics. :(

    But let me tell ya... get some heavy duty t-bars and leaf springs in that satellite of yours, warm up that engine somehow, and it'll be a whole different beast. That Coronet of ours cornered like it was on rails.
