This is easy! I had a 1972 shorty Ford window van from '72 - '75 - no pics. Since then I have only had one and it is shown to the left of this post and here:

Cool idea Snotty. Here's my pics. For some reason, I never took a lot of pics of my own vans. If anyone has pics of my first three vans I'd love to see them! My first van I begged and pleaded my parents to loan me the money to buy this '66 Dodge A-100 shorty. I was 17 and vanning was gathering momentum. This is how it looked after I saved up to have it repainted and got decent wheels for it. I loved this van. The color, the body style, the "attitude" everything. It's the blue one in the pics.

After a few years, I had to get rid of my '66. Besides terminal cancer, the steering box was breaking loose. I didn't have the funds to keep putting money into a van just to keep it running. I needed something dependable. My second van I bought in New Jersey in '76 at Dodgeland. I had seen an ad in Truckin magazine about how they had a huge selection so my wife and I rode down with my parents on a Saturday , picked out our next van, and drove it back the next day! Another shorty.
[Linked Image]

My third van, I bought in the early 80's because I craved a radical van and was too impatient and too poor to build one myself. I saw this one for sale at a van-in, struck a deal and rode a bus out to Conn. to pick it up. It had a side gull wing, no back doors, cougar tail lights, 3/4 raised roof, 400 cu. in. motor, full murals, and a bunch of other stuff. But it was well used and I dumped a ton of money into it before I got tired of it and sold it.

My fourth and present van I ordered new in '92 and is my favorite ride. But someday I'll be getting another A-100 to cruise in.

Cool idea for a thread! My first van, was not very picture worthy. I bought it in 1995 after upgrading from a VW Rabbit. I always wanted a van, and bought the first one I found. It was a 81 Dodge w/ a slanty six. Pretty much drove it into the ground.

I then found the one I currently own and bought it for 500 bucks. It looked like this more or less:

Not too pretty. This is much better:

I am currently on my 3rd van. A 1998 conversion.

Great idea Snotty. I'm missing at least one van here.
Here are three of them and you know my current one is in signature.
Gup

My first van was an early I got in '94. A '67 that I dug out of 6 inches of mud after sitting for years. It resides in Pittsburgh now and looks good.
[Linked Image]

I picked this one up in Decatur Il. in '98. It's an '85. Not sure where it is now.
[Linked Image]

My second '67. I flew to San Antonio in 2003 and picked it up from Starlord. What a drive back to Philly.
