Just a little preface to the build.

My sons Jameson (11) and Joshua (9) have been in the shop with me since then were able to walk and three years ago started a project called The Little Mechanics. We find and build projects with the boys handling the lions share of the work.

The Malibu Project started with a letter Jameson wrote to Santa Clause when he was 6 years old. I spent the next 4 years trying to find the right car to start with.

A routine EBay search in June of 2018 turned up a beautiful 86k mile 1978 Camel Beige Wagon in Phoenix AZ. A few emails a little wheeling and dealing and the wagon was on its way north.

Welcome from Iowa. I am interested in what you and your crew have planned for the wagon. I like seeing young kids getting involved.

Welcome aboard!
It's great to see that you started your boys interested in the hobby young. It's also nice to see that they chose a Malibu wagon as their project..How cool is that? Nice wagon too, I might add.
Thank you for sharing the pics. Please keep us updated on the wagon project.
