I'll never understand why G M never did this one even though it would have been a limited sales edition .

They thought it would cost too much. The '79 copies looked pretty good but I don't know what they sold for.

Very nice color choices, well done. What brand of paint and gold color did you use?

GM never thought they would be worth the cost of reengineering the wagon portion of the car and scrapped the idea, only keeping the '78 and '79 concept cars. A custom body company in California bought the rights to make the wagon version of the TA in the early eighties and produced a few of them, but they were not that popular back then due to cost and waning popularity of station wagons (non-mainstream).
