    Hi guys! As I've mentioned before, the wagon has been in a minor collision, and the vinyl was re-wrapped. I've noticed the re-assembly was half-hearted to say the least. Not only is it missing the center side spear molding, but I think it may be missing a rear tri-shield logo from the back. I've highlighted the area where I think it should go. Were these offered with a small tri-shield logo from the factory, or am I imagining things? Thanks.

    Maybe the one Emmanuel found by him might have one.

    Thanks for the thought! I PM'd him to take a look. Some of these parts are getting so hard to find, they're borderline mythical.

    Weird. I guess when they re-wrapped the rear tailgate, they put the “Buick” letter logo on the left side, no tri-shield.

    Man...This is making me madder and madder seeing what a [email protected]$$ job they did. :mad:. I’ll have Emmanuel cuellar keep an eye out for the tri-shield when he goes back out to the yard.

    Tuffregal83, one more question. I know it’s probably faded over the years, but does it look like the tri-shield was painted at any point?

    The illustrated parts catalog shows the Buick and tri shield on the right on an '83 Wagon.
