I am lucky enough to be the new owner of a 57 107 wagon. This thing is a time capsule! Been sitting for fifteen years and all we replaced was a fuel pump... Thanks to Josh for doing all the leg work for me, digging it out of the woods. Took my first drive today and here are the results... Yes it leaks, yes it smokes, yes it barely does thirty!!! But it's a freaking 107 wagon biotch...

Nice ride!
Bringing 3 water pumps to Uwharrie, but they may all be bad.
You can take one for a core to have rebuilt so there is still some value.

She needs some frame work and suspension, but plan on keeping her as original is I can. Might pull the motor to rebuild it but plan on keeping her on the road.

Sounds awesome - URE is such a great event. The OM617 swap may be up and running... But it is 2wd. Still haven't fixed my two busted CVs from last year!

Josh, chime in.. But I was under the impression that they had to move a couple 5k boulders and winch it out of the woods from behind the house. Wish I could of recovered it myself, but Josh stepped up and knocked it out of the park for me. He even earned himself a rat infested coffee cart, on me...

What a coincidence! Wasn't "Yum Yum Hut" your nickname in high school?
