Hey,

I've dreamed about owning a van for over 25 years and every custom vanning van I see takes my breath away.

Recently, I have become an empty-nester and Wifey will finally let me purchase a van and my budget is currently small (3-4k) but I feel like I've been saving and doing homework for YEARS.

A little help here please, thinking of pulling the trigger on this link I found on this site (Thanks BigBongo!)

https://orangecounty.craigslist.org/cto/d/huntington-beach-classic-dodge-camper/7000550516.html

I know it's more of a custom that came that way, but the colors and carpet make my heart go pitter-patter and I think it's a beautiful start that my wife will tolerate and grow to love before I get older, get more money and really be able to get a 1st or 2ed gen to do whatever I can think of to.

Opinions on this year and make please?

Think it'd be a good 1st buy?

I'm fairly mechanically inclined however currently on a short budget.

Thanks all!

-SLN

Welcome from Florida.
I have seen a that van posted on here the other day. I really dig it. The colors, interior etc are just way cool. If it looks that good in person and is mechanically decent. I would pull the trigger.

Thanks guys, Planning on it. Unfortunately my window ends Monday and that's the 1st day he can show it. if it's still available a week later I'll take the trip.

Wish me luck!

Also, I saw this van today and drove it:

https://cars.ksl.com/listing/5963071?ad_cid=15

NO RUST at all and original owner. It was amazingly clean for the year and sounded good. For some reason it feet small to me and just didn't fall in love with it.

What ya'll think of the Ford?

Thanks agasin fer' having me ya'll:)
