Yes, I remember seeing a Checker Wagon 8-door airport shuttle when I was a kid.
A 6-door Vair wagon would be interesting!

The station wagon windshield is about 2" longer than the cars, but since it sits at an angle the side windows are only about 1" taller. On my wagon I used the two-door door, but the window frame from the wagon front door and lengthened it 9". The wagons used the same vent window as the convertible, larger than the two and four-door vent windows.

That is a cool shopped wagon.thumbs up

But, it has some of those "tiny details" I mentioned before.

It is interesting that a 2 door wagon has three rows of seating!eye rolling smiley

The high school that I attended had at least two 8-door Checker wagons, used for the transportation of their sports teams to visitor's locales.

If that top one is P-shopped, they did a fantastic job!
All of the tiny details just look right.

Either way, it looks good!
Make that Real good!



It appears that the driveway/sidewalks do not match up through the side windows.

Yes, Kevin it looks like you are correct on that.

Oh Matt, you get me wrong.
I am not trying to pick it apart.
I was just trying to determine if it was truly real, or P-shopped.
I enjoy playing with P-shop, but I am no-where as good as these guys are.
These are done so good, that the only way to tell is by looking for the tiny details.
That is meant as a compliment to the degree of skill that they possess.
You can tell immediately with the stuff I do.

Oh, and GO BOISE ! ! !

I love the Early 4-door rear widow with the overhang. The 2-door rendition looks like a Corvair Biscayne and I find it quite fetching. The revelation that it is fake news makes me sad.
