Hey folks, new to the site. picked up a new to me van a couple weeks ago. 2nd van (first was a 71 VW bus that never really ran, in high school, so not sure that counts). 78 g20, owned by a little old lady since 1982. Runs great, shifts great, everything works. In really good shape overall, and I love the hell out of it. Been on two long weekends to the mountains in it already, in CO and NM.

got a few upgrades planned soon: stereo, 4 wheel disc brakes, replace window and door rubber, and replace the cracking tint on the rear windows. After that I'll prob build some bed/storage into the back. for now it's getting a motorcycle wheel chock so I can haul my bike. Eventually I'd like to increase the HP, but it's running so well, I don't want to do that just yet. Just enjoying it for now, seeing the countryside.

Welcome. You have quite a few vanners in Colorado, mostly around the Springs and Denver area. You can find them going into the Colorado Van Council website as well as Colorado Van Association's site.

Very nice nomad you have there. Looks clean. I like the wheels and bigger tires.

I actually thought about finding some Nomad badges, because I actually am very nomadic and it would amuse me.
