This is my new baby,bought from the original owner .. 1978 Chevy Van...
50k miles on engine,thrush side pipes,original 8 track and am radio in it along with original Cb.... ONLY thing wrong with it is dent on back end panel( far back) which can be fixed and some small bubbling at bottom.. It needs new tires but has original rims....

Sure I know it needs work,major cleaning,but I'm happy....Enough room for the kids plus... Paid $1,000.-

Yeh,now that I can actually play them ,I probably won't be able to find any :lol:
I seriously was going to have it repainted black with flames if the dent would have went near the detailed "paint" but it's right below it,so I'll get away with keeping it....

It's gonna take a lot of cleaning on the side pipes and rims but I think it will be worth it...... altho the day the funky paint becomes scratched too bad or damaged too far it's going into the shop... :p

Ya should hear that thing rumble... Sweet

Would love to see in in black with flames, but looks cool as is, love the window, and yeah, brings back some memories but being a good Catholic Girl I don't remember what it is I remember :devil:
