Was told to put it on here, looking for my old van sold in 1990. Chopped 16 inches motor in rear 440 ,windshield only 81/4" might be in Ohio and sounds like it was repainted orange. Have been looking for years now tried running vin# but because it's not 17 digits long won't work. Have pictures but can't get them on here

Finished my latest road trip. 5136 miles,23 nights in 10 motels,hotals. 8 states.
Got work to do now. Fix turn sgnal,washers,change oil. Rotate tires,check brakes.
Anybody else think Cooper Cobra GT tires are slippery when wet? They are nothing like my old Radial TAs.

I tried driving my coopers in Light snow last winter. Made it about 10 blocks until I parked it because I knew I’d end up in the back of a car, it slid around so much. Sounds like a nice trip you had!

My Radial T/As are slippery when wet also, even in rain. Once I get going I'm fine, but that first roll off from a dead stop can go either way.

the TAs were better than these Coopers. I gave them a try because they were $30 cheaper per fire than TAs. When these wear out it's back to TAs.

I currently have Cooper Cobra's on my 76 Dodge, they give a better ride than the TA's, which I had on the van before the Cooper's. The TA's seem to have more road noise also. The best tires I ever ran on the van were Remington XT-120's. Remington discontinued that tire about 15 years ago. I run Cooper Discover's AT3 on all my Tahoe's and Blazer's and get great mileage and they go good in the snow, but they are a whole different tire tread design.
