i have been really having a hard time trying to decide what kind of van i wanted, love the old school 70's look with big rear tires, flares, side pipes, etc but also like the looks of the 4x vans,
So tonight i went and picked up a 92 chevy van, its not a shorty but from what I've seen it doesn't have to be in order to look cool.
i'm thinking a set of flares, 15x10 wheels in the rear, 15x8 in front, not sure tire size yet, but largest i can fit in the rear. side pipes of course, interior is going to follow close to my boat interior. paint will probably match the boat also, maybe boating mural on the side.

Cool! Once you go van, you never go back. Keep us posted with pictures and updates.
