Hey everyone,

I'm from OKC. I just picked up a minty 95 G20 trail master with 80k on the clock. Family across the street garage kept it whenever they weren't traveling around the country with it.

Dan the original owner passed away earlier this year. Was super proud of it, and they wanted me to take it and enjoy it. Hence fourth changing of the guards for "Dan Halen" to my ownership.

I had been wanting a sports van g10 or g20 for a while to basically make what my conversion already has.

Dan Halen, has leather all around, electric bench/bed in the rear, rear ac, and all the interior lights.

Future plans
•fix the stupid leak and charging issue > check my help thread if you want.
•change from the horrible factory 15" five spoke wheels, to maybe some 17" or 18" replica rally wheels.
•grill and front air spilter customization.
•removable tv panel set up for camping with power inverter.
•CB radio of some sort.
•mexican blanket interior coverings
•trailer hitch, so I can tow my Volvo wagon race car.
•removal of the side graphics and redesign graphics.

Pipe dream plans
•air bag suspension set up.
•ls with turbo or supercharger.

Other things about me, huge Volvo fan. I own a bunch from 72 to a 2015. I do civil engineering design for a living and photography (https://cody-thompson.smugmug.com) for my other hobby. Some what gym rat doing kickboxing, boxing, jogging, road bicycles and nature hiking.

I grew up in a racing oriented home, dad had a super comp dragster. He/we used to build motors for all sorts of racing. I used to turn wrenches back in the day in my late teens.

Thanks,

Cody thevolvokid

El Gusto es Mio!

Mom Evacuated us out of LA down to sleepy Escondido, Ca, in 1969. On Saturdays, She'd drop me of at her Cousin Bob and Erline's. Bob was a Volvo NUT, and would rave about the quality. I remember it felt pretty solid, and was a stick. Square body. Immaculate.

Anyway. He would work my ass off on his mini Ranch, and loan me out to his neighbors. I'd be a bit miffed when he did that, but now that I am older and tore up, I know why. Thanks Cousin Bob!

Van On!
