After getting it off the hauler, I drove it 60 miles to the storage place with with my girlfriend Amy following in another vehicle. It was fun to drive...especially with the 3 speed on the column! On the freeway, it was a little scary...maxed out at about 55 mph and the play in the steering got more noticeable with more speed.
Brakes were great and overall it drove well.
The next morning before heading back to Abilene, I took it in for Title and Registration. It was more relaxing to drive on the surface street in the daytime and I got more comfortable with the handling and operation.
The Van is going to sit until I move back to Arizona (except for periodic trips back) or I might trailer it out to Abilene and start working on it here. But for now it's sitting happy in the storage itching to have those dents removed! lol
