I also remember Gladiator, it was one of the first vans that inspired me to take my customizing skills to a whole new level,before seeing Gladiator I would settle for "close enough" but after that I would tear a project apart if it wasn't right on the button of what I had in my mind.

There are some BEAUTIFUL Vans shown here and Vanishing Breed is one of my top pics!
Thanks for the eye candy!

Sea Rover was a serious van. Where was that taken Todd, Looks like the top photo was taken at Boogie Bash.


1973 Dodge Shorty B-100
1995 Chevy G20 Gladiator

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserve body,
but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up,
totally worn out, and proclaiming

"Wow What a Ride"

Bringing this back,
War Lord and Cinderella I really like. Nebula is very cool and after finally seeing what Gladiator looked like, I'm not to crazy over it. War Lord is awesome tho.

I saw it once. It was at the Oklahoma Nationals...the 5th National Truckin. Possibly the coolest Mid Ford I have ever seen. No clue where it ended up.
