    Hi my name is Bob I recently purchased a 1966 Dodge A100 window van. I always thought these bugeye vans were the coolest even back when I started to drive, but a 1969 GTO had to come first but I knew someday I would get a A100. It's amazing that back in the late 60's and 70's you could get these for a couple hundred now you see them on Ebay for thousand if I would have know that I would have bought a corral of them back then. Mine has a slant 6 170 with a three on the tree. I wouldn't trade the slant 6 for anything as i also have a 71 Dodge Dart only it has the more powerful 225 (yeah right) but you can run these thing forever. Hope to start restoring soon. It has some minor rust, i'm most concerned about the rain gutters , it also has some small dents but it runs smooth unless the shifter acts up and won't shift than i stop go up front and wiggle the shift levers. This is a real cool site with a lot of info and some really neat picture.

    Welcome to the site, from another Georgia Boy! I'm in Waynesboro "The Bird Dog Capital of the World"! sitting right here next to Augusta. You've found a great place to hang out. I too came back to vanning after a couple of hotrods, love the van more than any of the others.

    Keep us posted on the progress!
