As it sits, this car isn't a sleeper. Its creator had something else in mind. The unnecessarily bulged hood and white-raised-letter tires give a little too much away. Who knows where the exhaust comes out, but it is likely not aft of the differential and louder than WWII. This wagon is, instead, a hot rod of the classic type.

Station wagons and shifters are two awesome things that are not found together nearly enough. If you want this combo with a ground-pounding American V-8, you might just have to build it yourself. The creator of this vehicle was nice enough to install a contemporary Vortec so you can paint black rings in the church parking lot and wake up the neighbors with as little fuss as possible.
If this car is as awesome as it looks, its new owner is going to have a fun summer of 2016. We at DT are happy in the knowledge that this wagon exists and is out there hooning it up somewhere.
