I am completely obsessed!! I can't fathom what I could possibly regret about having even dozens of these cars...which I plan to someday. I want to buy/rescue/restore every one of these cars that I even hear about. I guess you could say I fell hard...haha.

What about turning a Tercel hatch into a sleeper trailer? Just looked one over in the yard and it looks like I would fit with a sleeping platform, etc. (6'1"). It would be lighter still than a 2WD wagon with only just a slight decrease in sleeper compartment volume.

You are going to need a bigger back yard. I run across complete cars that I do not have time to collect and rebuild, I will direct you to them to keep them out of the wrecking yards.

Professor...that might be a good option to make the weight. I'd really like to keep the lines of the wagon though.

Petros...I definitely need a bigger back yard! I'm already parking the 87 runner at a friends house. Definitely point me to any you run across. I WANT to save every Tercel I see/hear about but that doesn't mean I CAN. Although, if it's too good of a deal it's really hard for me to say no.
