Boy oh boy....AFTER reading some of these posts ( and NOT knowing all that history from being there) I'm concerned about my perception. MY business is called HOW I pay my mortgage and feed the cat. i do it for INCOME....BECAUSE!!!!!!I LOVE VANS and I always BELIEVED that in LIFE....YOU CAN find a job that you just can't get enough of and you would be doing it for free anyway, so WHY NOT CREATE A JOB FOR YOURSELF that you ACTUALLY LOVE to do. I WORK very hard at trying to surround myself with the THINGS and/or ACTIVITIES I enjoy...the BONUS with vans ( and all around automotive stuff that i do), is that it ALMOST always DON'T FEEL LIKE WORK!!!
I guess that because i was not part of this AMAZING group of folks thats been thru all this van history, all I can do is rely on those who have , to tell those stories, to help me to understand the history.
While it IS TRUE that those who do NOT learn from history, are DOOMED to repete it. Those who do NOT EVOLVE , will perish. We need to be on the side of the curve thats BRINGING new folks in and NOT promoting the things that have kept folks out! I talk to show developers and people in the Automotive business all the time and the thing that pisses me off the MOST is when someone automaticaly calls them hippie vans or "stoner" vehicles, before anything else .....I don't mind either, if I am one or NOT, but is THAT the FIRST thing I want folks to think about when they see my van? NOPE.... Fun, Family, self expression , art, utility.
We are IN a GREAT year and perfect TIME for VANNIN....RIGHT NOW!!! GET INVOLVED....PARTICIPATE......
The Evolution starts now..............100% VANNER INSIDE!.....If anybody wants to bust my balls about that .....CALL ME ...straighten me out.....
Todd....DO WHAT YOU DO!!! Doug, DO WHAT YOU DO....DAVE....DO IT BROTHER...I'll KEEP TRYING TO MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT on the thing we all love..and keep paying my bills...anything AFTER THAT GOES RIGHT BACK INTO VANNING!

I have heard that some of you think that Todd(van former)Valencourt should not use the title van promoter. WELL he is the one that got my super somer 2011 on tv and also what about the magazines coverage for vannin.He also funds the ARF show evrey year.along with the fill a van with toys. So i dont know what u would call that but KEEP IT TIGHT VANNERS think that he is a van promoter. you all should sit back and think befor u speak.Todd and mary both do a lot for vannin.Keep it tight are 100% behind todd and he is a van promoter.When someone else does a much as him then will call him a van promoter.

Tattoo please read the posts above your's. We've had this whole discussion before. I came down pretty hard on Todd this weekend for something else so I'm sure he's hurting a bit.
