I live in Mount Airy, NC AKA Mayberry. I have had a long history with vans, and finally decided to check out a forum dedicated to them. I had a VW bus in high school, and after graduating I lived in a 80 Chevy van. After about a year, I sold it to buy another VW and lived in that for about a year. I have had several VW's since, as well as an 84 Econoline extended van. Now I have a 69 Econoline to tinker on. Hopefully I will be able to contribute in some way on here and look forward to learning from the van gurus here.

Welcome.

I've had a few VW vans myself.
Only one that was ever a daily driver, though.
They were all love/hate relationships. LOL

Your username is cool.

I will get some pics this weekend. Super solid van. I found myself needlessly impressed with the side step actuated by the door linkage. Cool touch.

As for the name, thank you. That is my name on all forums that I participate on. It was a nickname that stuck many years ago when I was at an Ozzfest in Charlotte. 2001, and the show happened to fall on Geezer's birthday. I made friends with some of the festival employees and was invited to go on the tour as an employee. I called my job and requested an extended vacation, and left town the next night. I was not quite as rough as most of the workers, but was perhaps a bit more "spacey", and wound up being described as an Ozzfest cosmonaut. And was Ozzmonaut to most of the festies for the months I remained with the tour.

Before that a lot of folks called me Farley, because I lived in a van down by the river. James River in Richmond, VA. LOL
