Sorry for the threadjack, never thought I'd find stuff about vans on this site!

Bump for the shaggin' wagons!
ebay find . 18 mpg 5.4 liter,,,
3500 bucks...

pull the seats out and bikes fit right in the back and you can use the seat mounts to tie down to...

I already posted this in the other van thread but what the hell.....






This is the van I bought to convert into a camper. It had much potential but the drivetrain was unreliable so I sold it. If only I had the funds to buy a long block and a C6.


Still looking for the next project van.

Been looking at a lot of these vans with built-in garages for a little while, too

I wanted to get one of these and fix it up, using the rear luggage area to store a bike.



I've seen some medium duty ones on Freightliner or Kodiak chassis in Las Vegas that would make great RV conversions. Diesel powered and plenty of GVW to load the damn thing up without worrying about overloading.

That gullwing door was easy to build.

I read a couple of posts you made on that other "Adventure" site. Looks like you have a pretty sweet setup already.



How are things Jay?

A gull wing door would be nice, would make for a nice awning if done right.

My 4x4 van? I don't have it anymore.

Things are moving along.

I only saw pics but goddamn was that thing cool


I remember finding it online sitting in class in law school thinking you had life completely fucking dialed in and there I was sitting on some shitty wooden chair listening to some pompous asshole drone on about riparian rights in 1884 or some such shit
