    I just found this pic on my computer and thought I would share. It was a few years ago and I was at a state park here in RI for a family outing and spotted this van. I had to find out more and started talking to the owners. They bought the van new and have been taking it to the same spot every summer for years. They were great to talk to and didn't mind if I took some photos. I can't remember the last time I saw an A100 on the road here in RI and to see this pristine example in all it's original glory was a real treat. Soon I hope to own an A100, maybe I will run into this couple one summer day and our vans can hang out together.

    That's way cool. What kind of camping gear was on the inside?

    I am very sure this van is now owned by member ojaicraig:

    I've been in contact with him and the condition his van is in is marvellous. There can't be a second one that good!

    No not the same van...this one has chrome bumpers and doesn't have the white body stripe.

    Could be this one...

    They are really neat. Is the top fiberglass or metal? I would love to see pics of the insides.

    Just picked up a Dodge A108 and we're going over it mechanically.  It has drum brakes all around and no power assist.  Any conversions to front disc and/or power brakes on the market?
