    Not sure how many know Brian Bowie who hosted the A-100 Van Association meet in Carlisle, PA.

    For for a few years now he has been having health issues that I won't go into but it has been enough to cause him to liquidate all his A-100 parts/vehicle collection late last fall. Steve Scott from Ohio has bought up the whole collection. One of Brian's vans (Notel Motel) ended up at Joe Madonia's Museum of Vanning in Florida.

    Nope...no more A-100's although I miss having one. The only way I would get into another A is to find one already done turn-key. I just don't have the resources anymore to build one up.

    I had a '94 Dodge conversion for 10 years before the rust worm took it away and 4 years ago bout a rust-free '93 Chevy G20 conversion. That's been my "project".

    there is no doubt the early 's need a lot of attention and the newer vans do allow the owner
    a lot of comforts including down the hiway. but as you know so well , we love them all
    .Be safe Dix...

    I am looking for a drag link and valve for a power steering set up. Wondering if Scott might have one in the Brian collection.

    David, if you are in Portland, OR, have you tried Wildcat auto wrecking for your part? they are not very far from you in Sandy OR. They have nothing but early MoPars in their yard and a lot of A-100's.

    Yeah, I've checked with Wildcat. They have no PS parts unfortunately.

    (i sent you a pm.) other than that your asking for 50 plus year old parts that had a high failure rate regarding leaks and maintaince , look in to the guys using rack & pinion steering.
