Hey there! I'm brand new to the vanning community. Long-time gear head, but new to the van world. I bought a 77 Chevy Shorty to drive across the country in early July. I just attended the Van Nationals in Mansfield Ohio last week. I couldn't believe how welcoming and great the people are. The event truly had a family feel. I'm very fortunate to have met some great people and saw some amazing vans while at the Nationals. I also had a rock to carry around that kept growing throughout the event. smile

THanks! The rock quickly turned into a unmanageable huge brick. But it was fun.

Welcome!

We talked at length about your survivor van at the nats, it is a nice piece of history from the early days of conversion companies.
