Hi guys,
New to Vanning. I don't actually have a van yet but recently caught the bug. I thought it might go away but it seems to be getting worse. So, I guess you could say I am in the market but currently without the funds to really get what I want. (Which is what I'm trying to figure out). So being a newb, I've done limited research but sort of settled on what I'm looking for. I don't know if all my likes exist in one model but here goes - let me know.

Dream van would be a Chevy G10 shorty, with swing-out side doors, and a front grille like this stolen from a Facebook van page (thanks Mike if you're here -hope that's OK) [img]https://scontent.fsnc1-1.fna.fbcdn....e4f3574e3a93be1b9d7f3606&oe=5B1D2C40[/img] Oh, and with fuel injection. I understand that FI can be upgraded but I'm only mildly mechanically inclined. I like a fairly stock look, with minor external mods. Clean.

Welcome aboard!

A shortie with EFI and cargo doors on the side is not an issue...my '95 was set up exactly that way. But that grille is a little earlier, I "think" pre-EFI. So you'd have to convert to that if you start with a later EFI van...I think. lol

Well , there aren't any in Tucson. Use "Searchtempest" to peruse Craigslist ads. With regards to FI , time to learn-TBI is nothing but a really expensive carb.

Most of them are gone. I know of three between here and Yuma. All in "private" boneyards and the idiots won't sell. All have been sitting for 15 + years.
