    Previously on TreeVan,,,,,,,,,,

    Vanish rescues the TreeVan in Dec 2006
    Then gets the differentials off a 4WD Chevy Pick up.
    Then the front axle of the TreeVan is removed
    So now those axles are ready to be put under the TreeVan,,,,,

    The day I met Don I wanted to take a ride in his Early to see if I wanted to get one of my own again. While on our little drive, I showed him where I saw TreeVan every day on my way to work. It was in a fenced in yard of a body shop where it looked like they'd never get around to fixing up this poor van. Don took it from there and we all helped save another van!

    I gave Vanish a radiator to get rebuilt for the Blue No Door and I took off the exhaust system to get a new one made with a tail pipe that goes out the back. I guess Vanish did not like this MOPAR muffler that was on his van,,,,,,,

But some of the parts Got scrapped by accident.... and The Biggest Problem Here at the the moment is our Bad economy..... Just Don't have the $$$$$ to move forward on it !!!!! But stay tuned cause we haven't give up just yet....... Things will come around soon I HOPE............
