  • Wagonaire lawn swing

    A month or two ago I put the word out that I had a bench seat available that I removed from my ‘63 in favor of a split-bench with recliners that I found. No one seemed interested in it. I even suggested how spiffy of a porch swing it would make... anyway, it was too good to throw away, and too big to keep. And then I started noodling on this swing idea.... and, Poof! There it was.

    By the way, it’s supremely comfortable!

            I love it! The Pacific and huge bodies of water must serve as a great climate moderator for the region. Here, in the western Carolinas, the climate whipsaw of the summer sun, severe electrical storms, freezing winter temps, rain, bird droppings, and rodent nesting...the poor seat would be fortunate to survive two years, that is, if storm winds didn't twist it into a pretzel.

            But, for now...my overactive imagination has me enjoying a blissful moment relaxing in this "Post Card" scenery.

              Very nice work, and a great picture as well! This reminds me of the summer of '72 when we decided to junk the family's '63 Checker Station Wagon. Before getting it towed away we saved a bunch of "souvenirs" from it. One item was the front bench seat which was in perfect condition. My dad, a talented woodworker, built a nice wooden base/framework for it and it is still in my parent's game room .

                Quik!... Restage that picture again...with the Wagonaire parked (doors open) next to the swing. A potential future Turning Wheels cover picture.
