    I remember seeing the full size, drivable ones at a World of Wheels show in KC in about '72. I also remember seeing a couple of gasser vans at KCIR when I was little. Mostly for crowd-pleaser wheelie machines, but still....they were there. I've been dying to build one for years.

    I think it's in one of my old Truckin' Mags, I'd have to go check real quick but I think it is...Too bad my scanner decided it wasn't going to continue on with life.

    I'm working on a 65 Dodge A-100, but not trying for the gasser look. Sitting on the front tire makes it hard enough to handle as it is so I lowered it about 3 inches. Lot better drive and easier to get in. :)

    Back in the late 80's I remember seeing a real bad ass van that ran in Denver I always wonder about that one. It used to be pretty quick as I can remember. But Hell I was not that old either jus a young boy.

    from here

    I have not seen one van yet that was in gas class,almost all here were
    EXHIBITION .In fact the rule book did not allow vans.
  24. Sorry Meatball, You better do some homework on this subject. First of all, the Little Red Wagon is not an econoline. Its an A-100 Dodge. second, LRW was built to run in A/FX, not in a gas class, and no those two classes are nothing alike! LRW was not built by, or worked on by big daddy Don Garlits. It was built by John Collier and, Jim Schaeffer. Garlits was way to busy setting records all over the country to build LRW in '65.
  25. Dont you just love how any car with a straight axel is a gasser:rolleyes: It could be just me, but I get pissed:mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad: every time I see a picture posted of a car with no fenders, massive engine setback, or vastly altered wheelbase( like most a\fx or early funny cars) being refered to as a gasser. The term gasser is wasted by to many people who have no concept of what one realy is!
    OK, I'll get off my soap box and calm down now.

    Those are so ugly that they became cool.
