Howdy - I had an account many many moons ago and have lost all recollection of the username or passwords or even the email associated with it. Rather than dredge up the past, I have opted to charge forward into the future as I am not the same animal and neither is my "new" van. After some wheeling and dealing, bartering and a little cash, I have a 79 Dodge B100 parked in my garage. Plans are to tighten everything up and do a little cosmetic bodywork and then paint or wrap the van to promote my business. I managed to save a set of staggered Ansen rims from a previous project that I will be cleaning up and putting new rubber on. The goal is a 70's boogie van style up and running by this summer when I turn 40. I also have a strange urge to give the van a nose job. I had a 77 Tradesman 20 years ago and the nose was SO MUCH cooler than the 79. As the fenders are pooched on the 79, I have the overwhelming urge to slice and dice that earlier nose onto that ugly mug. I think I can do it. Another drink or three and I will know I can pull it off.
Anyhow, looking forward to learning a lot here, getting some advice and inspiration and buying and selling some parts here and there. Cheers

Welcome! Yes, I agree the earlier Dodges had a better nose job but that design worked too. The newer European style sucked big time. Post pictures when you do the grafting.

Glad to have you back Sam. Grats on the Van for sure. A 40 year oldie but a Goodie!

Stay warm up there and do keep us posted up when you get after it, eh!
