My wife and I are moving to Philly from Portland Or in April and want to make the drive with our stuff. We don't have much, we've slimmed down to what we think we can fit into a van.
Now, we love the old American vans. I've had a few, a '67 Falcon van and a '65 Chevy.
I've never done more than up/down the coast with the '67, and neither van I had too long to know about long range driving.
Would we be nuts to buy a good old van and try to drive across the country in it? For example, there's this van: http://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/cto/2177505453.html
Seems like a good one. Whatca all think? I know back in the late 60's if I had the chance I would drive one of these across the country no problem, but now, with them being all old and all, well, might be a gamble eh??
