I think so too! I have no windows besides the ports and with a long body, I have plenty of room. I think for now I am going to have my girlfriend hand paint PAINKILLER on each side of the van while its still in this cheap matte black paint I have now. Murals like that deserve proper bodywork and paint. I'll get there eventually

CleatusASlrectus: your Chevy looked almost exactly like my first van: my 1965; only Blue in color; which I believe was bought in 1972. Same thing happened to me with my older brother. My dad was furious we bought without him. My 71 was my all time favorite and my 1974 in 1982 was nice.


Deathorvictory; Lee7673 is right on: with PAINKILLER Tribute. I saw them in San Bernardino in I believe 82/83. OFF THE HOOK ! ( I bet you like UFO !! ) smile

We saw them last year, still so good! Heard Painkiller and a few others from the album live! Definitely like UFO, I really like Doctor Doctor. That bluesy driven rock is so good.

Right on ! I have been so lucky in my life and have seen so many legends that are gone :

Stones ( I'd be embarrased to tell you how many times ) ; Led Zeplin; Humble Pie ; Linda Ronstadt with the Stoned Ponies ( Eagles ) ; Nazareth; Guns & Roses; Santana ; Tina Turner w/stones; The Kinks : ELO; Ted Nugent ; Ufo; Black Sabbath ; Queen; Rainbow ; AC/DC; Fleetwood Mac; Jethro Tull; Eric Clapton; Todd Rudgren; Ringo Starr and Allstar Bands ( always a great show) ; Allman Brothers; Lynard Skynyrd; Bowie; Alice Cooper; Crosby Stills Nash and Young; Beep=Bop Delux; Doctor John; Emerson; Lake and Palmer; Genisis; Journey with Rick Perry; KIZZ in 1976 ? Motley crue; Rick James; Prince; Doobie Brothers; Gary Clark from Texas ( off the hook opened for Stones ) and believe it or not; Frank Sinatra 8 times ( my Dad's Favorite) and Elvis Presley with my mom in Vegas two years before he died to name a few I can "remember" !

I've been very Lucky. I wish I had a Hot Tub Time Machine ! smile

I was outside thinking about the good times and I can't believe I left out Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon Tour in 1972' in Los Angeles and Bad Company's 1st Tour and "Yes" a few times ! smile

I'm blown away I didn't remember the Who Tour in 1975 ( and yes Kieth Moon was their Drummer ) in Los Angeles. Highest energy concert I ever went to in my Life. They were UNREAL. Also saw them on the original Quadrophenia Tour. Mind Blowing Album.

Here's one for you Deathorvictory= URIAH HEEP ! KILLER IN CONCERT ! Awesome band. OMG How could I forget Deep Purple ! I need to stop now before I over-load whats left of my brain ! smile
I couldn't resist adding : Grand Funk Railroad: Foghat ; Steely Dan in early 70's...........they stopped touring for decades and saw again in 90's , Faces with Ronnie Wood and Rod Stewart.

The Maroon one I have now is called Fatal Attraction. The chop I am building is called Vandemic (was started when I was home during the pandemic). My past vans were named Blue Illusion and Borealis

I'm loving that name "Blue Illusion", that's killer.

I just realized I hadn't chimed in on mine. I ask all my vans nicely, then patiently wait until they are ready to tell me their names. My first was the 76 G10 "the Rum Cutter", the 2nd and current is "Queen Anne's Revenge", and my 2000 Astro was "Clean Francine".
