    That's a great link, dirtybird! My first van was a 69 chevy. Would love to have that van again. Those were loads of fun.

    Picked up a vista cruiser roof, should be welding it in soon!

    J Cruz, digging the Vandoleros blog! Cool stuff, I'm feelin' it...
     
  6. That's badass! Can you put it on the roof without fucking up the rest of the paint?

    I just bought the 1974 Chevy show van the Emerald Express. It is a two owner with 45,000 miles all original the way it was built.
    First owner died a few years ago. Family sold it to friend. Friend died a few months ago I bought from his family. Always garaged. Never smoked in. Painted in 1975. The van was ordered Green with white side insert. All of the custom painted panels are on top of the original paint. Undercarriage is all painted up green & white as well. Van is rust free and excellent shape. I am looking for old pictures of this van at East coast van shows or indoor shows from the late 70's. It was at most of the World Of Wheels shows in DC, Baltimore, Roanoke VA. Hershey Pa. This van was always a central PA. van.

    My stepfather always had a van. He had a usually had a Dodge or a Ford. His Dodge was a trademaster called "Strange Brew". It was kinda cool but stupid him traded it for a bus. Stupid. Until his death he always had a van.
