Hmm...a definite cruise mobile.

What kind of brake work?  Rotors, calipers, pads / shoes, etc.? The usual stuff?
My guess is probably a rusted out brake line. I had the brakes checked out and some work done on them soon after I got it, but a few months after I parked it because of the fuel line issue, I started it up and drove it back and forth in the driveway a bit, and the pedal went to the floor.

Are you selling the shaggin' wagon?  

I have this affinity for wagons as I learned to drive on one. Being from a family with 8 kids, it was either the 65 Valiant Wagon or the 73 VW Bus.  Spent a lot of time driving both of them.
The first family car I have a memory of was a 1976 Chevy Caprice, lime green wagon, drove it around the farm a little bit when I was a pre-teen. After that we got a brown AMC Hornet Wagon, that was the first car I remember driving on the road at age 13  Grin

Yeah, thinking about selling the shaggin' wagon. It has been sitting outside for about a year, just haven't had the time and energy and garage space to work on it, would love to keep it if I had the garage space, but can't bear to kick the Miata, Mini, or BRZ out of the garage, besides, I could only fit one of those other cars in our garage if the beast was in there, as it would turn our 2+ car garage back into a 2 car garage, as the wagon is about the same size as the Mini and Miata put together.

The Country Squire wagon ran when parked, has less than 100k miles, and has practically zero body rust. Would make a great project car for somebody. Needs a fuel line (rusted out), a battery, and brake work, those are the known major issues. White with wood panel exterior, and period correct blue velour interior. Would love to resurrect it with my soon to be 16 year old son, but I'm not sure I trust him with a cargo area the size of a queen size bed, I know I wouldn't have trusted my teenage self with a car like that.  Cool Would love to see it go to a good home, care more about its future and keeping it running vs making money on it. If I Craigslist it for $800, it will probably end up a demo derby car  Cry

Hoosier's would probably be a better option
