We decided to keep our beloved wagon, Shaken & Stirred.
We spared no expense – or effort – in building this wagon. We’ve driven it across the country and we’ve raced it extensively – once at the track, race preparation consists of airing up the tires and charging the GoPro battery. Yet it’s docile enough to be a daily driver. If a customer hired us to build this wagon again, the total cost would exceed $75,000. All work except hood and engine paint and alignment was performed in our shop. We have extensive content documenting the build – photos and videos.
Where else can you find an 8-seat woody wagon that’s been shown at the SEMA Show, raced in the Optima Search for the Ultimate Street Car Invitational, and thrown sparks off shredded tires while winning a burnout contest?
We’ve documented the build of this wagon pretty thoroughly on our website, and here is a recap.
The short version
Cammed LS3 poking through a functional shaker hood scoop, Tremec T56 Magnum 6 speed manual transmission, double-adjustable coilover suspension, Corvette disc brakes all around, and custom Speedtech gauges in a custom dash panel with a tach right in the middle. We put down 440 – 450 horsepower at the wheels over several dyno sessions, which works out to approx. 500 – 525 HP at the flywheel. Oh, and seating for 8.
The long version
94,997 miles on the wagon before our modifications; 14,500 miles on the wagon after our modifications; and 0 miles on the fresh engine, transmission, shocks, and brakes.

The wagon is in great shape overall but there are 2 dented areas – detailed photos are shown below:
Driver side front fender, at the bottom
Driver side rear wheel well is damaged when we lost a wheel on the road; this also dented the frame but we don’t think there is any safety concern with this damage
The 2 areas with damage are detailed in the photos below.
