Great looking wagon. I had a 78 Buick wagon as my first car. Great memories.

Great model.  Brings back memories of the days before mini-vans, these wagons were everywhere.  Nice work.

Nice job. I had one of these in gold, and a Cutlass version in maroon. Pretty good cars, considering. I've toyed with the idea of making a model of my Malibu. Just too many other projects have come first.

I LOVE it!

 

Those A (G from 1982-on) body wagons were nice cars. I had some friends in high school that had them, and I almost bought a 1983 Malibu with a 305- very nice car to drive.

 

I don't think I ever saw a wagon with the rally wheels on it. They look good on the car. The one I almost bought had those odd, but good-looking stepped aluminum wheels on it.

A friend of mine in high school had a 1:1 in a similar color- fill this up with amps, some guitars, and a drum kit and add plain steel wheels and it would look just like that car did mmost of the time.
