No excuse for that kind of stupidity.

This Verdier VW concept was really cool.

Everyone in our family had vans in the 70's. I drove one in high school for a while, and just mentioned to SWMBO yesterday that a van needs to be our next vehicle. Far too practical on most every level.

My dad was a great guy. He usually had a spare car or truck of some kind, other than what he and mom drove. When I lived in New Mexico it was a van. He and mom were coming down for the holidays, and he told me that they were going to drive so that they "could see the sights along the way".

A few days later I was talking to my brother and he told me that I was getting something really cool for Christmas. That's when it hit me and I said "The Van". It was a 3/4 ton Plymouth. I drove it all over New Mexico and southern Colorado. Hauled motorcycles, camped in it, hunted out of it.

Until this thread I'd kinda forgotten how many good times I had in it. I wish I had a scanner.

Did anyone have old Econolines?



I just stole this picture but there were a couple of cool ones in my high school, in the late 70's. I thought they were neat.

I've been looking for an Econoline 4x4 diesel for a long time, and they are rarer as shit around here. I wouldn't order a new one given the engine choices now, and I can't afford the insane money people seem to want for a used Sportsmobile... $90K? I guess I'll keep looking.

I am leaning towards a Sprinter, but while I love the inside height and space, just not as rugged. I guess it would be nicer for paved travel though, but I don't see it splashing through the water in Death Valley like above.
