  8. Welcome from St. Catharines. Neat van - years ago I had a '65 Chevy van, no side door, short wheelbase. This was a family beater not a toy and it was really rusty, but we had a lot of fun with it. I'm still very fond of vans and I find it strange how they're called "mini-vans" now when the 60's Fords, Chevys and Mopars were actually smaller! Keep up the good work and welcome.

    Welcome from Haliburton, Ontario. Drove one of those vans for work for a year in the 60's. More fun than I could imagine and getting paid for it to boot! Sadly it was written off near Hanover Ontario. All the best with yours.
