Default Corvette Station Wagons

Many years ago I remember seeing some corvette station wagons . Were these custom made, and does anybody else remember seeing these. I'd like to see some pictures if anybody has some .

No they weren't all home made jobs....greenwood built a few official corvette wagons. I kinda dig 'em. They're cool in that anything goes 70's custom kinda way.

Around that same time..it was popular to graft a Vega station wagon roof onto the back of a Camaro. The resulting fast back station wagon looked good and had nice lines similiar to those Chevy VW's (Vette-Wagons).

Eckler's had a popular station wagon kit in the 70/80s for the C3s, but the coolest was the prototype "Nomad" design done on a '53. Very cool.

I know the man who helped design the Ecklers / Greenwood station wagon kit. He'll be at the Corvette Cup in Columbia Missouri April 12th if any of you want to meet him.
