I live in a rural area in northwest PA and know most of the old cars in my region and had never seen this van in my travels, Thursday night a couple miles from my house we were coming down the road and the fire department had just finished putting the fire out on this Dodge van named Tequila Sunrise. It was towed to a garage about a 1/4 mile from my house and I am trying to get info on who may of owned and if the van was just passing through my area. A lot of traffic takes a shortcut cross-country through my area to get to Interstate 80. The owner had to be heart broken, me and my wife both had chills up our spines when we drove past. Looks to be a total loss. I will try to post some pics I found of the van, and my wife found a couple the local fire department posted on their FB page. I think I have a magazine laying around with an article about this van. If you type Dodge van Tequila Sunrise into an internet search you will find a couple pics of the van.

Yes, that is the van, thanks for posting the ad. I knew I had seen it for sale a while back. Still trying to figure how the van ended up in the rural area where I live. NEmery, I see you live in Beaufort, my parents lived there in the 1940's while my father was in the Marine's, I remember as a kid, he took the family back to Parris Island to visit the base around 1974.
