Check out my new toy.

Check out what I picked up this weekend!


A $200 Vanagon....Get this it runs but needs a little work. Typical Vanagon engine stuff. :roll: Anyway..this van is solid...no, ROCK solid and for 200 bucks i had to buy it. Heck even if I have to replace the engine, I think it's worth it. I thought maybe I'd try out a Subby conversion with this one.
I spent the weekend and this evening cleaning it up.......That's all it really needed, except for brakes. I replaced those this evening and cleaned up the wheels.


Next I'm going to fix the few surface rust spots and add a little fresh paint here and there. Should make a cool daily driver.
I'll post better pics later.

Cheers

Chris

It looks like the one I had -- only a year, possibly two, newer. It was one of my favorite vehicles and I would own another one in a heartbeat.

Nice! What's his name?

Do you ever have the feeling that you're being followed?

I liked the name we discussed.....Vance! Hehe....get it Vance?!
Until the bug is done I'm calling the van "That damn thing I'm mowing around"!

You can follow me anywhere!

I want to go GL with the Van too!

If I find the motor to be trash, I have a good source for a used Suby engine....Heck I've seen one on the web that somebody grafted in a V8 Audi engine! Well I doubt that I could ever afford that, but something is going to happen, even if it's wrong!
