    about a year ago they were selling the dodge a100 van that was used in the remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre on ebay. It was pretty cool and the reserve was only like 4 grand or something.

    Geezzz...I love those second generation Fords. What big, solid brutes they were.
    Wish I still had mine!!!

    1st gen Fords and Dodges were good lookers too. GM...not so much for me...but to each his own!!!
    The 1st gen Dodge was a well sculpted vehicle...(although I WOULD go with the Ford just because...)

    That Mopar designer had a very narrow set of rules to play with, as they all did, but you gotta give him credit for a job well done!
     
  7. :D this thread got me going so I bought my old 65 dodge back:D front nerf bars are 1960 bugeye sprite bumper guards!

    Here is a scan from the book "cult of the harley davidson" from 1982. They have a few of his 70's bikes too, like the tattoo bike. lots of cool engraving and gold plating. real works of art!

    The van is bad ass too.

    I have always wanted to drop an old van body on a truck chassis. The problem with old vans is that they're... well, not cool. :p

    I've seen the prices on these things go up. I've had my ford "vuck" for 6 years now and I drove it home for 1800 bucks, now they fetch a much higher price.

  17. Hey Fella's, don't mean to hi-jack this thread, but seemed like a good place to find a home for some old "Truckin" Mags I have in my archives. Used to hang out with older brother in his version of the "Mystery Machine".:p Hard to believe most of those custom vans are gone, sure was a shitload of them back then.
    Will also post in the classifieds and maybe do a Hamb auction.
    Oldest issue is Volume 1 #4:1974 through 1979. Make me an offer I can't refuse. All in mint condition. PM me if any interest.

    I always seem to be headed in a different direction. Anyway, heres mine.

    74 G-20, 350/350 12-Bolt, 3" Rancho lift spring and shocks, custom roof rack/ sleeping-veiwing platform (great for catching sea breezes in Baja). I can get my atv and camp gear inside and still have room to sleep.:)

    I'm sure digging this one. My Friend had a van about like that and it had big n little slotted mags on it. Looked tough as hell. I was set to buy it, and his old lady totaled it. :( I was planning on stuffing a 327 in there.

    What year is this van? My Friend's didn't have the marker lights so I guess it was older. Neat vans man. Later Josh

    It's a 70 GMC, last year for the forward control vans. It's also a no door, meaning no side cargo doors. Very rare, less than 200 built in 70.
    250/powerglide, and the heavy duty V8 style radiator, I think GM was just bolting together whatever they had to get rid of inventory before the design change.

    It's for sale over at www.vcvc.org , I sold it last year and it ended up in Pennsylvania.

    Wow, FINALLY!!!

    I'm more of a van guy than traditional rod guy (although I love them as well), so I have to post. I did these about a year ago and have had my 74 Dodge for 3 years. I hate to get rid of it but it's for sale if anyone is interested. Saving for a down on a house. I'll be doing quite a bit more as far as van illustrations this year.

  29. Nope, it was younger brother Tony who built that beasty. Imagine a 427 Chevy with that short wheelbase! Feature article in the June, 1976 issue of Popular Hot Rodding.
