This may be a long shot, but curiosity is getting the better of me.

The van my wife and I redid was somebody's baby at one point.

When we started cleaning away the layers of ratty black paint we came across the hand lettered name "Warsaw Express" with some beautiful pinstriping all done by a gentleman named Dick Bird from the Minneapolis area. We purchased the van in Duluth Minnesota so I would assume it was built and lived in that area, North woods are. Minnesota, Wisconsin maybe... Unfortunately the lettering and striping was all too far gone to restore. I was able to get a chalk rubbing of it.

Just curious if anyone out there had ever heard of this van? I know back in the day there were tons of personalized vans out and about but the fact that this one still had a mildy visible name on it gives me hope that someone may recognize it.

Thanks in advance.

I'll post pictures of the rubbings ASAP
