In my case, the “adventure” was meeting family I had never met, visiting a graveyard filled with family history, and having the crank shaft pulley come off going down the highway !
On the pulley, it appears the four bolts that hold the pulley to the harmonic balancer sheared off, sending the pulley flying down the road, shredding the serp belt, and leaving us stranded for 7 hrs on the side of the highway waiting for a tow truck, then getting to the shop to late to get the van fixed, and having to wait three days to get it fixed. They had to replace the balancer, pulley, and belt....
Beyond that, the van ran great . We are very happy with this purchase, and are looking forward to many years of survive from it.

If I ever figure out the dang pictures thing I will add a few pics, but to date I have done the following changes to WOLF DEN II

1) named her WOLF DEN II

2) removed the fog lights

3) added a chin spoiler

4) removed the two middle seats, opening up the middle area better

5) started painting the wood work to a dove grey color

6) replaced the front speakers to a pair that work for now

7) designed the new stereo system and started gathering parts

8) still trying to find the source of the coolant smell. No leak seen, but can smell it.

9) picked out wheels and tires for it, to be purchased in the future (American Racing AR23 in 15x8 and 15x10 with 235-70-15 and 275-60-15 Cooper Cobra GTs)

10) starting to “black out” most of the chrome on her

11) replaced the front seats back to the stock seats that came with her when she was built

That’s where I am at so far.

That's how the heater core in the Mustang got me. Kept smelling it until I found a nice puddle on the passenger side. Bypass the hoses so they don't go to the heater and see if that clears up the smell.


You hear the thunder of stampeding rhinos, elephants and tacky tigers
This town ain't big enough for the both of us
And it ain't me who's gonna leave
