I'm only up to 2 so far, but I have a feeling that will change as the years go on.

I bought it against my better judgement, the exterior is solid but almost had a puke fest when I opened the doors.. This guy is a hoarder.

Good lord man. I really don't understand why people do that shit. I mean I have my fair share of hoarded parts and stuff, but I always try to keep things organized.

Right on, I wanna see some pics!

I had to get back to work, waiting for tow truck to bring it to the shop.i will get pics.. That is flat out trash, disgusting. I will have it dropped next to the dumpster, get a nuclear fallout suit, a rake and shovel and have at it.

I gave him $380 with trash in it..lol

Worth it just for a parts van alone
Posted By: Astrocreep66 Re: Had to buy it. - January 25th 2020 11:32 am
I am going to change the flat and have it towed today, I work 6 days every other week which sucks. It supposedly ran and drove great until the power steering bracket broke in his driveway. I had seen it before cruising around here in Donelson, I hope to have it moving by this afternoon or tomorrow. Still have to get some pictures.

Not a bad looking ride man. Once it's all cleaned up it should be a sweet set of wheels.

Thanks I paid more for a no window sliding door for my other van..lol

Even with all the trash, currently, The Dumpster is still faster!? sick

Honestly with all the interior panels and wood trim still in tact, you could re use/reupholster them pretty easily and add some custom touches. So much of the work for me has been making everything from scratch so having the base already done just leaves it to easy stuff.

Looking better!
Posted By: Astrocreep66 Re: Had to buy it. - January 26th 2020 11:55 pm

Looking great man. That thing is turning out to be one slick ride already.
Posted By: Astrocreep66 Re: Had to buy it. - January 27th 2020 12:45 am
Thanks, I am still building a motor for my brothers van too. Worked on it today also. I am cooked.

Man watch out for the Po Po Agent 66, You stole that thing!
I believe the TBI 4.3 Chevy configuration has to be good for close to 200 HP. Nice work.

P.S.
Nice Tip! Nothing wrong with the single 2.5 inch exhaust setup you fabricated. At all.
Posted By: Astrocreep66 Re: Had to buy it. - January 27th 2020 11:07 am
Being a muffler shop makes it mandatory I put exhaust on before it runs..lol
Posted By: Astrocreep66 Re: Had to buy it. - January 27th 2020 11:11 am
I ordered headlight doors, tail lamps and a pair of mirrors for it. I have to get 2 g20 windshield put in.
