Beautiful model Thumbs Up. Turned out very nice. Love the body color and the wood grain came very life-like. Roof rack looks good too.

I love Mecum Auctions and Barrett/Jackson auctions and what would I do without Ebay.

That's quite the model!

Probably one of the nicest "Ghost Buster" conversions that I've seen!

Nice work!

Hey, Ernie. I keep coming back to this thread and looking at the photos. Other than the wood, the luggage rack, and the extended roof-line, how much customizing was involved? I wouldn't mind having a big, old Caddy like that in my collection eventually, but I'm not one to get into a whole lot of custom work and I don't care to have a Ghostbusters car. Just wondering if it would be within my limited skill set.

Thanks, Ernie. Sounds like the car could be built as a stock Caddy without a lot of extra detail work. I might have to add that kit to my stash.

You may want to keep a look out for a more stock rear bumper!

Darned ! !

 You sure done that one up proud .That is Beautiful !

 Of course, I love any wagon with the wood on the sides . My Favorite will have to wait awhile but , I saw a resin 57 Ford Country Squire , That and the 64 are my favorites , hands down ! .

 I like the way you handled the " Modern " touches ! O.C.G.        P.S. The conversion helps demonstate how big those   "Road Monsters " were.
