Hey all!
I recently decided to turn my old band van into a more functional (to me) vehicle, and fun camping/road trippin' (heh heh) van, and I came across this site. I drive a 93 e350 extended clubwagon, so there'll be plenty of room to boogie it out. While I've always had a deep admiration for those old 70's boogie van/shaggin wagons, it wasn't until very recently that I realized and decided that I could/should do something more interesting with my 93 ford. However, since I'm new to this realm, I am looking for suggestions and tips/ideas on sites/stores/etc to attain some killer parts and accessories and where to get started.
Unfortunately I don't seem to have any pics of my van that I've owned for 5 years accessible to me, so I'll update with some photos later on.
Thanks for keeping this forum going, as it appears that I now have plenty of new information to sort through on here.
Cheers!
-KB

Welcome to the site. There is still a few shops selling van stuff, and some folks building new stuff.
