I have trophies for Early & Late modles. There are a few things going on that weekend. Hy~Rollin Vans is hosting a Van show about 3 miles from Taz'z VCVC on Saturday September 4th. Everyone is welcome before & after the show. There will be lots of eats, drinks, fun & entertainment. I will be serving burgers, hot dogs, brats, Fish Fry, & Lots of sides. Hope to see everyone there. Here is a link for the flier.

    I'm planning on making a day of it, hopefully the econo handles the drive. Lake in the hills isnt to far away from Taz's place. I talked to another vanner(Walkers68)to see if he's in for the drive, he's a maybe.

    Just wanted to drop a note on how things are gearing up for Taz’z “Party in the Yard”. This is our 10 year anniversary and to celebrate it we are having a few new things. One thing is a Live Band!! Their will also be T-shirt printing on site. Last year we did how to install a windshield. “Thanx Mac” This year we are doing 1st gen disc brake conversion, transmission swap “TH350 to 700R4” and possibly how to wire your new small block. I have all the trophies, the dash plaques are ordered. As usual all vans are welcome.

    Taz'z 10th Annual Vintage Van Fest "All Vans, Econoline & A-100 pick-up's welcone" Empty Build during Taz Fest

    Post by Guest Thu Aug 05, 2010 11:22 pm

    My lovely bride wanted to post this here, but didn't want to set up an account nor could she figure out my password......Jake
    I have been with Jake for nearly 10 years. Ever since I have known him, he spoke of his ’65 Chevy Van that he had while in Paramedic School in the mid 1980’s and how he wanted another one. He faithfully looked on Ebay for years for one and finally bought a 1966 in 2007 out of St. Louis. That kept his interest; it was waxed, cleaned and taken to Taz Fest at least 2 out of the 3 years he owned it.

    Next came the 1964 from VCVC.org. This one didn’t run and was located in Oregon. He talked me into letting him buy it and in September of 2008, it showed up in his garage. He quickly became overwhelmed with the project and it has since sat, on jack stands, in the garage for almost two years, essentially untouched. It is in primer and the body is in decent shape considering the van’s age…. He desperately needs assistance getting this van to run and stop.

    In conjunction with Taz Fest 2010, and to honor Taz’s 10th year, we would like help working on the following items:

    1. Assistance with the cooling system (mounting a second generation radiator)
    2. Swap a Chevy turbo 350 to a 700R4
    3. Swap 4 drum brake system to front disk / rear drums.
    4. Hear it roar to life

    Taz has graciously offered the use of his shop, lift and tools, but what is needed is your expertise to assist Jake with his project and more importantly teach him how easy? It is to work on these vans.

    I asked him for specifics on the van and here they are:

    1. It has a Chevy crate 350 with Edelbrock manifold, 4 barrel carburetor
    2. Currently has a turbo 350 transmission
    3. 4 wheel drums
    4. “doesn’t need a lot to here it run” according to Jake

    The goal is to get this van to RUN and STOP and ultimately getting it much closer to a trip to the body shop than what he could do on his own. Jake’s other early, a 1966 is for sale on Ebay and Craigslist. The proceeds will be used to bring his dream to life.

    If you are willing to assist and lend your expertise to this project, either get in touch with Taz or Jake.

    Sincerely,

    Ann (Mrs. Jakemedic)
    Scott

    I wish I was going to the Taz Fest this year, I'd jump right in on this.

    I'm sure the link for the sale of the 66 is already posted on this site, but it would be good to put it here too.

    I'm going to be Early-less this year. With Taz's help, my stripped down A100 finally made it to a body shop today. This means that the competition for the default Early Dodge trophy is up for grabs! Laughing

    Seriously though, both events are quite impressive. Lots and lots of vans from all eras (especially Earlies). You get an education from newbies and gurus alike.

    If any of you Chicago area guys need a co-pilot for Saturday's show let me know Wink (I'm around Round Lake/Fox Lake)
    The bride can't wait to go to Sunday's party in the yard. I'm bringing her via a '97 Honda Accord w/o a/c, so I'll have a little room if anyone needs a DD.

    Well Chris, I was informed yesterday that we are going to see the band Train on Saturday evening. I'll be coming to Fatman's by car (probably in the afternoon) with the wife, then hit the park gates at 5:00. Gotta love it when a plan comes together.

    We'll be a Taz's place on Sunday as well. I'm tempted to drivethe parts van there, but I want to be sure I arrive safe and sound.
