Thanks, it's been a long time since I was in there & I'm sure it changes weekly.

see ford, your ad just makes me want a peel p50. 473 cubic-feet is some serious space though.

Thanks for the info. I passed the shop on the way to my mother's & it was gone.
They were working on it for a local I'm sure, so maybe I'll see the new owner around and find out how the hell it got here.

Saw this one in the Outback this past weekend. Local company rents vans that are all painted up.

Cool, but the likeness of Buscemi is sorely lacking.

I looked up "Record Island" in Tocca GA. Looks like it exists. How it got from GA to here, who knows?

Yep.
My guess is the Nissan rims are a "what I had laying around w/good tires and HOT DAMN! same bolt pattern let's get this thing to pass inspection" solution.

Saw this over in Vermont today. It's part of a unique collection of all kinds of 'stuff'...



Between the plate and the sombrero you can maybe get an idea of just how small this van is.
