Dear Readers,

Happy New Year! About six years ago, I bought a 1961 190Db Binz wagon that was advertised in the Cars for Sale section of this website. Since then, I've been working on it. It's been a ground up restoration, which isn't complete yet! I bought the car sight unseen from a fellow in Alaska, and had it shipped down to my place in Everett, Washington. I took this photo January 2, 2015. I have tons more photos documenting the work in progress, and also of my 1960 190Db sedan. I'd like to send a bunch more, but for now I think you might find this one interesting.

Kind regards,
Angus Wylie
