Just needs one more silver tooth on the passenger's side! They look like chrome bumpers from a VW...

Just finished driving from Phoenix Arizona to Michigan, 2000+ miles and besides seeing Tice's Van the only other van my GF and I saw was one in the last 25 miles in a little town along one of the great lakes.

Why does the rocker panel on the passenger's side flare out just before the rear wheelwell? Are they all made like that or is that something someone modified? If you look at the driver's side pic, it looks like the rocker goes straight across to the rear wheelwell...OR maybe it's just my eyeballs playing tricks on me again What a Face

No it wasn't your eyesight Vanny, I went back for another look today and the van must have been hit on that side. Bondo everywhere and thick. Looked inside and there's crappy welds and rust. Front floor has rust as well and they welding the skin of a Chevrolet tailgate down, which actually is a cool idea, but it's a nightmare bodywork-wise. I called up just for fun and the guy said he wanted 3K. Good Luck with that!

Most 50+ year old project vans are gonna have some mods made to them by now....I like the pickup truck tailgate sheet metal for the floor repair!

My Wife Spotted this yesterday on the way to the movies and knew I would have to see a picture of it to prove she actually saw what she said she saw...nice Econo in the next town over from us at Cruiser's Malt Shoppe. Wish I could have been there to talk with the owner. cyclops

Almost looks like the one that was for sale in Connecticut last year...Anyone recognize it???

lol Vanny, looks like your wife has been through the training as well!

So another California spotting. My girlfriend's sister who has also been through the training and is a Mustang and Firebird owner saw this nice Dodge pickup at the Mira Costa car show, I think it's near Oceanside.

Tempe Arizona - OMG! Ok I try to be open minded when it comes to "Customizing" vehicles, but in my opinion this is a waste of my favorite type of Chevy Van. I snapped these while trying to safely past through a stop light, got the best I could. Notice it has a Fore Sale Sign in the front window! Hurry before it's gone!!! Rolling Eyes



I think the woman on the corner sign read "Why!? Why did you do that to that poor Van!?"
