No replies??? Scrolling through some posts and saw this. Very nice wagon! Very sharp and great job on the dual carb set-up.
If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?

Thanks..

Heres an update i changed the paint scheme, removed the hood stripes and painted the roof flat black.

I also redisigned the intake manifold to make the runners more streamlined and extended the runners into the ports in the head.

Here are some.pix..
