Hey everyone,

I was in elementary school during a good portion of the van craze. I always loved the vans. Several of my friend's older brothers had vans and a neighbor had a Van. I was always partial to the 70s Dodge vans. I have been messing around with cars since I was 12, but never got around to getting a van. I stumbled upon this 75 B-200 shorty last year and have been slowly making progress. Mostly mechanical stuff so far (it had sat for many years) It has 92,000 original miles, a 360/727 and still has most of its original paint.

Welcome aboard DTimme. [Linked Image]

That's a solid looking Dodge...great find!

Sounds like we're about the same age. Lots of vans around as a youth (family, neighbors, on the street). The '97 I'm picking up in a few weeks will be my second full size. You're gonna love it. I grew up in central Illinois. We were always St. Louis fans (Cardinals baseball!), doing all the fun things (A-B brewery tour, Grants Farm, arch, Transportation Museum, Ted Drewes, Six Flags, etc.). Still listen to KSHE every morning (thank you internet!).

DTimme you and I have almost the same story. I was 7 when your van was built so I missed all the fun but remember all those vans! Killer van you've got there, can't wait to see more of it!
