    O.K. I'm figuring with all the wares I haul about in the Olds currently that one day I'm going to have to part with some $$ to buy something with a bit more space....... so I was wondering anyone in the same situation what do you use ? got any pics ?? I know Barnett has a van and Sam has an old Panel from the speedshop, what else are folks using ? I'm leaning towards a late 50's early 60's Chev/GMC Panel but in reality I may not have the spare $ for something like that.
    Show me some pics.

    YOU SHOULD CHECK OUT SOME WAGONS . . . YOU CAN PICK SOME UP FOR A LOT LESS CASH THAN A PANEL..

    Sweet,
    Wagons are cool too, specially the 2dr variety, the 58 Peddro is next too was too much $$ might keep my eyes open for an early Holden one locally either that or get into the A R/PU (o.k. so it would carry less then the trunk of the Olds......).

    This is what I drive. I'd like to say its improved a lot since that was taken, but it hasn't and I won't lie to you.
