    LMFAO! "It has a 5.6L V8 with dual fuel tanks, which you will need, because it is no Priuis, but when your brakes fail on your Prius you could fit it in the back to take it to the dealership."

    It was the "American Volkswagen" (wannabe) plain and simple. They had an entire line of corvairs just like VW and all were rear-engine air cooled, just like VW. They had the Corvair Lakewood station wagon, and the Greenbriar bus. Then the sportier Monza's, Spyders and Corsas.

    I wouldnt be too upset if I had a '69 Monza 'Vert in my driveway.

    But aren't they "unsafe at any speed?"

    ....and KTM and Yamaha, and Suzuki, and Kawasaki and Husaberg and Husky and whatever bikes were left would have to have airbags right where the Scott's steering dampener currently sits......

    Well I bet that was a fun project. Father and son projects are great. When I was in high school my dad and I put a 302 V8 into a hatchback Pinto. It was super fast rolling bomb with the exploding gas tank.

    Ahem, they had six cylinders and were the American Porsche. My first car was a 65 convertible Monza that looked just like the one above, :raabia , and it blew doors on my friends' VWs. The Corsas and Spyders blew doors on mine. Quadruple carbs?? Find that on a VW.

    Ok, as promised in the earlier post, here are some pictures of this beauty form the 80's. Ask away with the questions, and make me an offer, this is taking up a valuable parking spot and needs to go to a new home.

    Look at all that space for bikes:

    Here is the copy from my craigslist ad, le me know if you have any questions:

    Yep, your read that right we are selling our 1985 Ford Van with only a little over 93,700 miles. If you are looking for something to haul all kinds of things this is your new vehicle. This baby was loaded when it was new, but a little less now. It has only a drivers and passenger seat, so if you are looking to haul the soccer team you are out of luck. The other seats are long gone and I dont know where they went, so dont bother asking for them. It has a 5.6L V8 with dual fuel tanks, which you will need, because it is no Priuis, but when your brakes fail on your Prius you could fit it in the back to take it to the dealership. Other options that are installed and still working: am/fm stereo, tilt steering wheel, cruise control, air conditioning, and intermittent wipers.

    The body is in good shape considering this was built before I graduated high school. It has some rust spots and dings and dents, but nothing major. The rear tires have some good tread left on them, but the fronts might need to be changed soon. The carpet in the back needs to be torn out, it smells like dirty socks and stale beer. We will leave this task to the new owner, none of us want to touch it.

    We will remove our logo and stuff along the sides before we sell the van.

    The original owners manual is still in the vehicle and we have a clean Colorado title in hand.

    If you need detailed pictures please send an email and we will send you some more pictures. Call to schedule an appoinment to view and test drive the vehile. You must have a valid drivers license and insurance to test drive the vehicle.

    Tom 970-790-5218 during business hours.

    Ps: we will even leave the rubber matts and trash in it if the new owner wants them.<!-- START CLTAGS -->
