damnit vans are cool, the best ones are the ones from the 60s, they were all stripped down work versions. The late 80s brought on the horridness vans now offer lol. My brother scored a 64 chevy van from hawaii from some hippies who didnt know how to keep water or brake fluid in it for almost free.

Thought i would post my old Van. It was an 86 Chevy Conversion.

Here are a few pics.



We called her The Turtle Express. I even made that plaque on the dash.





But the sad part is, is that she gave up her life to save ours.

It was. The rear seat would turn into a bed and it had rear Heat and A/C. Moved me from Oklahoma to Vegas earlier this year.

I miss my van.

Bummer to hear, but atleast you're alright man, there's always more to build/have/buy. Where abouts in OK? My folks use to live in Tulsa & Enid for a bit back in the 70's.

I lived in Norman and Lawton. Norman was kewl, but Lawton was to dead of a town for me. Thats why we moved to Vegas. I'm used to the fast paced life of LA.
