Weekend Edition – Two Wagons from the Same eBay Seller; Are They Desirable or Not?

Recently Updated90

Continuing on with the Weekend Edition,and I thought I would share a couple of unique Wagons that are currently on eBay, and they are both from the same seller. They are both part of a fleet of Wagons that come from Speed City Cycle, in Indianapolis, Indiana. Since the shop is closed on Sundays and Mondays (!), I will try and get the back story on these (and other) Wagons that the currently have. I love vintage wagons, and I even nominated one for HCoTY, so let’s discover two of the most fascinating wagons currently on eBay…

Weekend Edition Quick Hit – A Mint 1962 Chevrolet Corvair Greenbriar Van now on eBay…

It is the Sunday Edition of the Hooniverse Weekend, and in conjunction with Eric’s Liveblog at the 24 Hours of LeMons’ Doing Time in Joliet Crapcan Race, I thought i would highlight some vehicles that you can acquire to either tow your racing heap, or at least crash in the pit area while you’re rebuilding you magnificent machine. This Greenbriar Van falls into the latter category, as a Corvair Flat 6 may be perfect for racing, it’s not quite set up to tow anything. So, could you see yourself piloting this forward control van?

Here we are on the last weekend of July, and in celebration of the Live Postings Eric is doing for the 24 Hours of LeMons’ Doing Time in Joliet Crapcan race, I thought I would continue with highlighting some Tow Rigs you may want to use to haul your team’s prize winning “Race Car” to and (not always) from the track. And look what I found… I can only describe it as probably the single greatest K20 Diesel Suburban in existence, and you can own it…

Weekend Edition Quick Hit – A 1992 Dodge Ram D-350 Diesel Cabriolet; Tell me this wouldn’t make a great Racecar Hauler

Dodge Other Very RARE  eBay - Google Chrome 7262014 124405 PM.bmp

So, in honor of Eric’s Weekend of covering the 24 Hours of LeMons’ Doing Time in Joliet crapcan race, I thought I would throw out a few vehicles that you can possibly use as either tow rigs, or living quarters if you ever want to get into the league of other disturbed individuals who frequent these venues. Everyone knows that after you spend your time and hard earned money on a $500 Racing Machine for either the 24-Hours-of-Lemons, or the other $500 racecar series that is ChumpCar, you need a tow rig to get your crapcan to the race (getting it back is a whole different matter). The LUV Pickup really wasn’t a tow rig, but this is; Introducing a low mileage Dodge Ram D-350 Cabriolet Conversion…

Weekend Edition Quick Hit – A Remarkably Intact 1980 Chevy LUV Truck on Craigslist…

1980 Chevy LUV - Collector's Item! - Google Chrome 7252014 85909 PM.bmp

Welcome to another Hooniverse Weekend, and I thought I would start out with one on my Quick Hits, in which I find something interesting that is currently on Craigslist, and here is a fine example. This is a 1980 Chevy LUV Pickup that is not only running, but a lot of work has been done to the engine. So, do you think you have what it takes to finish this project?

Hooniverse Wagon Sunday – An Original 1960 Valiant Suburban Wagon located in Arizona…

This will be the last post for the Hooniverse Wagon Sunday, and I thought I would go out with a bang… With this Chrysler Valiant Suburban Wagon. Now, 1960 was the debut year for the Valiant, and it wasn’t badged as a Plymouth… No, this was set up to be sold at all Chrysler dealers, once they signed on as a Valiant retailer. It was only the next year that they were identified as a Plymouth, only after the Dodge Boys received the identical Lancer variant. So, this is an original Valiant, with the famous Slant-Six, and a floor-shifted Manual.

Hooniverse Wagon Sunday – A 1969 Buick Skylark Sport Wagon; The Other Vista Cruiser…

The Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser is an iconic piece of Americana that is easily recognizable as a milestone vehicle today. There may have been other wagons through this time period that sold in greater numbers, buy none were more memorable. And that is really a very sad thing when it comes to our next featured wagon because it had all the styling hallmarks of the Vista Cruiser, including the “Vista” Roof Windows. Presenting a very well maintained 1969 Buick Skylark Sport Wagon, the other “Vista Cruiser”…

Hooniverse Wagon Sunday – A Sinister Looking 1973 Plymouth Satellite Wagon from Texas…

I hope you are enjoying Hooniverse Wagon Sunday, and our next wagon has a Sinister Look to it, even though it has a faded light blue paint scheme. The Plymouth Brand has always had their fair share of “Sinister” looking vehicles during the late 60′s and early 70′s, and I think this wagon carries on that tradition. What I want to know is what do you think about it?

Hooniverse Wagon Sunday – A 1978 AMC Matador Wagon from Quebec…

www.kijiji.cav-view-image.htmladId=1004205089&image=0&enableSearchNavigationFlag=true - Google Chrome 7192014 83229 PM.bmp

I have to confess, this is one of my favorite wagons that I will be posting for the weekend. This is a 1978 Matador Wagon (which ticks off all the right boxes for me, and I bet for many of our fans as well), equipped with the standard 360 CID AMC V-8 (in its last year of production for cars), and is fully equipped, at least according to the seller. So, is this wagon truly as lustworthy as it seems to be?

Hooniverse Wagon Sunday – An exceptionally clean 1992 Chevrolet Caprice Wagon on Craigslist

1992 Chevrolet Caprice Wagon - Google Chrome 7192014 81241 PM.bmp

Well, since it’s officially the Summer Vacation Season, I thought I would do a series of postings specifically centered around that long lost vehicle of choise for families on the go, the Station Wagon. I have found a few that are currently kicking around the web that are for sale, starting with this beautiful 1992 Chevrolet Caprice Wagon.
