Hello, just got my 1983 Chevy Shorty here in North Carolina and starting to hopefully move it forward. Was a New Mexico van for most of its life so there is very little, to no rust! Was a plumbers van but really was to abused except for the ladder rack which was the first thing to go! Has a 305 V8 in it and it runs, but will need some love. Got a small list of items that I need to run down that are not coming up too easily on the internet. All in all, just wanted one of these for a long time and now I have one to work on! First thing is to change out front tires for something a bit smaller in size as they rub.Looking forward to reading all the information I can find on the site...

Hello to all...and thanks for the welcome. I really didn't feel the earthquake...because I was already out in the garage. The wife and daughter sure did! Second one since we moved here many years ago.

Thanks to all for the welcome...and so many near here! I will be asking a bunch of questions after I get through looking at the existing information for my little van. I hope to out and about as soon as the virus decides to go away...look forward to meeting many of you!
