I kind of shyed away from this because of the previous topic but Thank you Howard for posting the list, Van-up had me going for a while but I figured it out. I hope You all (the Nats Board) get it worked out totally and maybe publish or post as complete a list as possible on here or or the Nats Board web site, so everyone knows the answers on this in the future. I think everyone knows that a definite and complete list is impossible. But you got a nice size chunk of it on here today.
Thanks


Cheers!

The step van being allowed nearly knocked me off my chair! Didn't see that coming, but that is one you would probably have to check at local eVANts.

We decided to allow them, since there were several at the first few Nationals, and some really nice ones back in the day. I was hoping to see Mooney's this year, but didn't.

I have a PT Cruiser (since 2002) It's a car! Yes they made some of them to look like panels & some did it after they bought it BUT it's a car

Actually, yes, it is a Dodge Neon platform, which definitely makes it a car.

HHR Panel yes

HHR window no
[/quote]


...so heres a question for yall... if the early models came in pannel'd AND window'd versons, and are BOTH allowed in, why are the HHR PANNEL'D allowed in and the HHR WINDOW'D are not?

i was always told the van deffinition was (with exceptions) a stock vehicle offered by the factory in a panneled version.

first the HHR is not a van. the early models are a van. the important part of the sentence is VAN. the HHR pannel is named a panel inportant word is PANEL. make sense now?

Ad the pre 73 windowed panels are sort of grandfathered in due to the fact that we have had several attend Nationals back in the day.
