About 2 years ago I bought a 1975 Dodge b200 with no windows and have been spending that time getting it mechanically sound and beginning to customize the interior. About 3 weeks ago my girl decided we ought to head up to a friend's cabin in Indian River Michigan, around 300 + miles north of where we live. After checking and topping off the fluids we set off not sure exactly how well the van would run or even if it would make it. I'm pleased to say that I had no real issues and it was very enjoyable driving that big old girl all that way. We will be heading back home tomorrow... So wish me luck.

Here is wishing you luck on your trip back home and with future mods!

Really, you don't need luck. AAA might be more what you need if anything happens.

Drive safe!!!

Good Luck Zank.
We were in the same area of Michigan earlier this summer on our annual vanabout. There seems to be two seasons in Michigan, winter and construction ahead. lol
Really, it is a nice area.
