What’s up all? I’m new the forums and to Chevy shorty life. I recently picked up this 88 v8 5.7 with 90000 miles no rust or body damage for 5000$ Did I pay way to much or am I somewhere in the range? Either way I’m pretty siked about it and learning about what I can do to it and utilizing these forums. Looks like a pretty cool community over here. See u in the boards

Welcome! A couple of years ago I would have said yes but prices for decent vans have been going up (I imagine because the new ones are ugly as heck).

Why is it that when I press 1 for English, I still can not understand the person on the other end????

Greetings from Indiana and welcome to the community. Nice van you found. I like the no window look. Starlord is correct, the new vans are ugly. Have fun fixing her up.
