Quite a few nice old school vans in this sale, all listed at auction. Even a Denim machine. Any members here plan to attend or does anybody on here own any of them? Regards, ccccccc in SW Michigan

On the Deni machine they gutted the interior and put in some funky interior. No old school interiors in these vans except for the 86 ford van. All flippers to make a quick buck.
The 1976 Dodge is a 1978 or later. They got that messed up. Look at the side lights. At least it shows that Vans are now starting to show interest in customizers.

I just noticed there are more than the first five vans. All going up for bid on Thursday. One Chevy has original interior.


One guy owned all these vans in Chattanooga TN. He has roadsters too. Can't drive them anymore. I thought these were flippers but no one guy had the work done his way.

After my first question, Clear title I always ask who did the "work". Most "flippers" have no idea or history on the vehicle. Regards, CCCCCCC in SW Michigan

These vans all belong to a vanner from Wheels of Confusion in Southern California. Barry was at the 2017 CofC in Las Vegas with the tandem and had been to the Count's for previous shows. He's had the vans in numerous big car shows and van events in Southern California over the years. This is going to be very interesting auction. If you are in the market for a van there could be some bargains to be had with no reserve. There are some errors with dates on the vans, I'm trying to get Barry to have Mecum fix that.

I got mixed up with two Barrys having a sale. Barry Walston and Barry's van collection. Walston is from Tenn. The vans are nicely restored but the interiors suck. they look more like limo's then old school vans. The Coca-cola denimachine and the tandom are horrible looking with no thought into the past Vanning era. The others are at least fixable.
