When I was in 8th grade in '78, I took drafting class. One of the projects we did was to design our own "customized" van. I absolutely LOVED that project. So much so that I did a number of designs. We not only did the inside, but we did the outside too. I even remember doing a 4X4 version ! I really wish I would have kept the drawings.
GROOVY BABY!!!!......Boy! talk about High School days, and music like Kansas, Led Zepplin, Kiss, Motown, and Drag racing days.....This Gem is one of the best I've seen today, but back in those days it was like a dime a dozen out in Central Ave , Yonker NY, and a whole lot of them at the Whitestone Drive-in movies...especially at Classon Point, NY.....Thanks Shelly for bring Nostagic moments......:thumbsup:
I was only 6 when this van came out, but I am have memories of a van similar to this one. So I am glad I could bring back some memories for you guys.. I wish times were like they were back in the 70's and 80's again... I can't speak for anything earlier... :lol:
Looks like Roger Dean's artwork on the upper half of the sides. :thumbsup:
Of course, Yes was the antithesis of Disco in the 70's. I remember seeing many custom vans back then. Shag carpet was very popular in them. This guy was a little more practical....easier to spot the "roaches". :dude:
