My first van I had in my early 20's. A 108" wheelbase '69 Chevy van with a 327 'vette motor sitting between the front seats....attached to a 3 on the tree and the flat, bus-style steering wheel

About zero weight on the rear wheels, so when I drove it in winter down to my dad's place east of Placerville in the Sierras....it got dicey. Fun as hell to drive, don't see many of them around anymore.
It would light up the tires literally until you let off the gas - I can't believe I kept my license thru the entire time I owned it.
Was cool to see this video - mine was white over blue with baby moons, a rig I'd buy today in a heartbeat - Muntz 8-track and all
