I'm really jonesing for some port hole windows. I want round bubbles; if anyone has a couple in good shape, send me a PM.

Pics, just because...



Maybe I'd go for some like these:







Stalker van with photoshopped porthole...



This is what I really want.

On a recent trip to NYC I noticed a lot of full size vans around, all with port hole windows. Here in Pittsburgh, you never see them.

Any recommendations on some port hole windows? I think that is something I need to add to my van.

This place has the flat round portholes:

No one makes the plexi bubble windows anymore. If you can find a good set from the 70's... let me know; I've been looking for some, too.

Question for the E250 crowd

Are there any special procedures for bleeding the brakes on a 2008 E-250 ?

In NY the laws about commercial vans are really stupid. You have to have windows behind the drivers side as well as rear windows are you are considered commercial no matter what your seating arrangements are. Even with the windows you must have seat brackets or seat belts, or permanent camping equipment.
If you have commercial you must be lettered with your company info, and you cannot park on the street for over 3 hours or overnight.
Really stupid law and one that has been a thorn in my side..
