I'm with Scrojira on the green shorty, go get it and worry about the smog crap later. That thing looks very nice. Shorty with original paint, a/c, that's about as good as you will find.

And I'm with Deathorvictory, this may sound bad and you may not want to hear it but I also think you are over-thinking this. It seems like you need to know every possible answer to every possible question. It ain't a perfect world, we can't answer every question for you. You have to be the decider in chief but I can say adding factory air to a non-a/c van will be a pain in the ass.

And I'm with frscke1, there are ways to "solve" the sniff test process. You just have to "know a guy".

And remember the unobtainable triangle "quality, price, service - you can have 2 of the 3". The $4k van doesn't have everything you want and the owner is not as cooperative as you want but the van is nearby and cheap. There is almost 2 of the 3. The green one is nice and has a very cooperative owner but the van is expensive. There is 2 of the 3. Comparing those two vans is a no-brainer in my world. Pick and choose or wait forever and try to get all 3. Good luck on that rabbit hunt!

Unfortunately, I'm just not ready to get on an airplane otherwise I'd be on a 1,700 mile one way roadtrip in my new van!

Your right Deathorvictory. Sorry. I want to work Saturday and I'm off Sunday. The guy said he will show I believe Sunday as well.

frscke1. I've never had to deal with a DMV referee. That scares me.

I need a Hot Tub Time Machine.

P.S. 1959 . I hear you. I've been through so much this last 10 years and don't want to make a bad "finincial" mistake = $ 13K for van + 250.00 vehicle inspection with compression check included.
I'm actually leaning towards that 1976 in New Mexico. It's like you said. It's so primo !

I feel like one of those teenagers in that "Scared Straight" ( Don't say the EZ joke Rusty; that goes for Dusty too. )
T.V. series where juvenile delinquents went into prisons and the seasoned inmates told it like it is !

Or I'm waiting for Jack Nicholson to call me and tell me ; ": YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH" !

The Worst ! I need a Hot Tub Time machine.

I don't know why you're preemptively freaking out about smog so much. When I was living in San Diego, my '78 passed without any trouble - even with a disconnected evap canister and small exhaust leak.

At any rate, you'd better s**t or get off the pot if you want that green shorty because I'm about to make arrangements to have a good friend of mine in Phoenix go buy it for me and drive it up to Portland.

Good move Scrojira but not what I want to hear! Have him drive up to me instead.
