as much as I wish could, I can't drive my Econo everyday. My current daily driver is getting ready to turn 100K, so I'm starting to look for something with less mileage. With that in mind I'm thinking about a minivan. So I put together an idea for putting some custom touches on the previous generation Dodge, tell me what you think (I know it's not an early)https://i.servimg.com/u/f84/13/44/49/92/carava12.jpg

you're right, it would have taken hours to do that by hand, or with a few photos and some scissors

I'd love to drive the econo everyday, and may one day, but right now I drive about 100 miles a day on my commute, I love the econo, but wouldn't want to put it thru that 25,000 plus mile a year abuse.

i think that its good for a vintage vehicle to be exercised everyday. it keeps the seals and rubber moving. i find that you get in tune with the sound of things and the way the machine feels. thats what puts the ghost in the shell

I actually drive my econo to work some days, I have driven it everyday some weeks, and will drive it more as weather cools down, but it's nice to have a daliy driver with all the creature comforts for my 50 mile drive to work
