I actually like that one aside from the lettering on it. It looks like they did a great job.


They did a job, great? not so much. Theres a lot of shabby solutions, for example one side has 1/4 of a slider door opening on a couple of hinges. If there's interest for detail pictures i took some this summer and can make a thread for it. The ad has changed. it now has a big sun and ad for window tinting. I's been used for advertising by at least five different companies in the last ten years, and changed colors several times.

thats almost a good way to mod the fenders if you absolutely had to run wider tires, like in racing.
but its got that goofy, first gen charlies angels
thing. the headlight thing shouldnt have gone past paper design.
I love the long nose mural. priceless.
the fifth wheel rig is really cool. a good way to save jy vans.
You could transport miniature horses in one.

Proud to say this is my very own creation. I wanted a westy but needed a van with a flat floor so I put a top from a camper on my trusty 84 Dodge. Used to deliver furniture all over the western US in this, I could fill up the bottom and still have a place to sleep. FTC people might see it roaming around, I sold it to a friend with the condition that I have first right of refusal.

Apparently the moderator didn't approve??

nice thread...though I'm in shock. I wish I had the $$$ to make my van ugly or deface it instead of keeping it on the road.

This one is pretty amazing, but it seem to have one singular purpose. Just not for everyone.
