If I could I would buy that whole fleet in front of that dodge place, Damn Street Van heaven there, Only worth a fortune to us but just the same I would love to get my hands on any one of them.


Cheers!

I looked up that dealership and it is in Los Angeles, California. So cool to have 12 Street Vans out front.

Sould be in Hayward Calif which is in the Bay area by San Jose etc. As far as 25 mpg with a 318 I used to get that and more all the time,12 mpg up the hills,13 mpg down the hills and that adds up tp 25 mpg right? smile

Back then , nobody cared. gas was still cheap $.48 to $.60 cents a gallon. I was a poor bass player in a good rock and roll band and still had gas for my van. Back then you could take your girl out to Red Lobster for lunch for $15, or fill your tank for less.
