Most stateside customers looking for a vehicle with a little extra cargo space will opt for some kind of crossover, SUV, or pickup truck, and that’s fine. However, there’s another body style out there that’s often overlooked when it comes to hauling stuff to and fro – the wagon. Now, one enthusiast is building the wagon that GM should have given us with this custom Buick Regal GS TourX.
Photos of the project were posted to social media by Instagram user @project.tourx, showing the progress made thus far. Finished in pearl white, the wagon looks quite tasty indeed, especially with the new mods and upgrades.
Per the @project.tourx feed, the project was launched last September.
“For those who aren’t aware,” the post reads, “The TX is a German made Opel sent to the states where it was given lift springs and cladding for the American market. Well, I want none of it!”
The plan for the build was straightforward – lower it, improve the styling, add a spoiler, upgrade the wheels, and toss on some big Brembo brakes. To that end, the owner installed a new Regal GS front bumper, a rear GSi Sport Tourer bumper imported from Poland, a set of H&R lowering springs, and some nifty-looking 21-inch by 9-inch Blaque Diamond wheels. The wheels were wrapped in 245/35 Toyo Proxes tires.
Under the rollers, a set of brakes plucked from the Cadillac ATS-V help to slow the roll, with a new yellow powder-coat finish to accent the wheel wells. The windows were tinted as well, for good measure.
Further details include quad exhaust tips with inspiration from the Cadillac CT5-V. The lower body cladding was also removed, and a rear spoiler was installed on the hatch.
The final results speak for themselves:
