If I had to do it again, what model wagon is a good base to start?

1989 VN Executive Wagon
Ok so I have almost finished the VN wagon which was my first attempt at a custom build.
I am looking at doing another wagon when I part ways with the VN next year.
What wagon should I grab next that offers more in reliability, handling etc?

It must have body kits available.
I would prefer a 5 speed manual ( but it seems after the VN, most were autos ? )
I like the 3.8 V6 engines but would be happy with a V8
My build budget to purchase the base wagon would be $4-5k , with custom bits added as I can afford them.

I understand I will probably never get my money back when I sell, but... I never do. I just enjoy doing them up and keeping them on the road.

VS Acclaim? ABS, SRS, Ecotec, lighter than VT-, some of what you learned doing the VN will carry across so you can improve on what you didn't like on it.

I can find info about the VR Acclaim, but nothing on a VS Acclaim wagon on wiki, any other links?
