Hello All!

I haven't been on an automotive forum in many years. It takes me back a bit haha. I am from Toledo OH I am about to be 30yr old, and me and my GF just got our first Van.

1995 GMC Vandura G30 w/454 Traveler conversion with around 150k on the clock. We are big motorcycle and dirt bike fans so we decided to finally pull the trigger on a motovan build. We are totally new to this and are just looking for a support group I guess haha. We got the van from a good friend who got it from his grandfather. He loved this big pig and didn't drive it enough and didn't want to see it go to waste so we took it off his hands. We are currently going thought the engine and getting it all tuned up for a big trip from Toledo OH to Missoula MT. We have a bunch of questions about this build, mostly cosmetic and mod questions. But I am hoping to finally find some answers for this ole beast.

Ha! I am learning that more and more. Searching sites from parts has been interesting. Some sites don't even list it as an option. We are stoked on it!
