September 04, 1999

My name is Chris Ring, I am in Austin Texas, I have owned and driven daily my 1950 model 473 station wagon ( 2wheel drive, planar front end) for 10 years now. Over the years, I have made considerable modifications including an AMC 258, a 4 spd, A/C and a ford 8" rear with highway gears. Just this afternoon I finished painting the exterior dark metallic green, a solid tan, and dark metallic orange panels. It was looking pretty shabby for the last 5 years or so and its 50th Birthday is coming up. I also recently recovered the interior panels with cloth, replaced the carpet and installed new bucket seats from a Mitsubitchi.
