Charlie that swivel seat is sweet. You should go back and get it.

I didn't take any pics of the vans but there was a 1994 G20 in the yard today that was hit almost head on. Everything of value had been removed long before it was scrapped. But it did belong to a vanner.

I looked up the run on Instagram and I did see several pictures of the van before it was scrapped. It was a decent rig.

There was also a 1982 Dodge Ram van. Thing was about as long as a Maxi but wasn't badged as one. All the interior panels were plastic.

Has some decent swivel seats inside. I pulled the digital clock out of the overhead console. I think it needs some cleaning but so far it isn't working.

Went to a scrap yard over the weekend my buddy works out of. They don't sell parts it's basically strip and crush for everything there. Found this old dodge van was the only other van besides a rotted 85 chevy conversion van. This one looked complete, but didn't ask the owner for details. It was locked up and looked like it was being used as a parts shed so it'll probably last a few more years there.

I explored a yard today I haven't been to in about ten years. They had several pre 1981 G10 vans off to the side waiting to come come in. Lots of grilles and tail light conversions.

I found a pretty stripped out Dodge and a third generation Ford short panel.

Someone had beefed up a 5.0 with a Weiand Stealth intake.

I'm waiting for pics, my brother found a 1979 Quadravan in a junkyard. It has portholes and some other stuff.

This van was aptly called "rust bucket". Look at the spray foam in the ceiling and all the rust.

There were two third gens with pop out windows.

Looks like it would have only set me back $45.
