Hello Everyone, newish van owner from north jersey. Never was on into full size vehicle had a ton of gm series trucks over the years GMC syclone, and well over a dozen s10's and a blazers and such, but this van has always had a soft spot with me. My father bought the van back in the late 80's its an 88 G20, was the family hauler/ travel vehicle its whole life, and even when I was out a vehicle for a while due to some sort of asinine project i was attempting i'd use it as a daily. Well into his wonder years, it was replaced several times over but he never would sell it, and so it laid on his property since 2007. Flash foward to 2019, and after his passing the general consensus of the family was to scrap, but it means more sentimentally to me than that, and although i would never start a project with such a rough vehicle there's more in memories than worth and so i hope that i can get her restored and running. Specs 88 Beauville, G20 chassis with a 305 auto 123k original miles, new engine installed in 2006 due to a sloppy oil change employee at Jiffy lube. So i look foward to any assistance and info and tech tips i can get and meeting new people on this journey.

Thank you guys, I'll start a project thread on it in probably two or three weeks unfortunately time doesn't allow for me to start any sooner. I have a eclipse gsx build that needs to be finished, and would have been except i received a faulty water pump, and my junkyard v8 s10 needs to be put back on the road before i can really wrench on the van. Where i'm working out of garage space is super limited due to the land lord hoarding cars.

Welcome to the community. Great idea to restore the van. I'm sure after all these years it's become like a member of the family. Best wishes on the restoration.
