This thread is making me miss my old van something fierce!
I had one like this (1977 Dodge van):
Bought it in 1984 when I was a firefighter, with the '24 on 48 off' schedule it got used constantly, camping, concerts, road trips, "other".
It was ugly as hell (baby shit brown paint), had green shag carpet and lawn chairs for passengers...I had a great time in it!!
