Anybody remember Spaceman's stretch Ford, custom paint, really cool looking van. I have some pics of it that I took at the 1999 NATS in Butler.

I remember that. It was a third gen, mostly white with maybe blue graphics.....?
I got to visit with Spaceman at his place in FL back in 06 or 07. Custom vans were everywhere......
He had a red Chevy with the whole side gull winged (Renegade was it?), a really beautiful black Dodge with a Viking theme and a yard full of others.
Best of Show contender most years.

I believe he had that at the 06 Nats in Harrisonburg. I talked with him about it. I think he found that in the northeast, possibly Connecticut or Massachusetts. He had just bought it and was trailering it home. Somebody feel free to correct me if I have the story wrong. He has definitely had some nice vans over the years. Didn't he also have a white Ford called Warlock.

Yes he did.
I'm digging in my old hard drives but I haven't found any of the others thru the years. It real easy to get side tracked looking at old pics..... smile

That pic I started looking for in the first place, I believe this is it.

Yes, that is the van, wonder what the total length was. The green van in the background is Bonehead's.

Rust in front of passenger side rear wheel opening, drivers side rockers rusted front to back, and those are just the areas visible from photos. Center where stretch was done very rough top to bottom looks poorly done. Needs a lot of metal work.

Didn't say it wasn't COOL, just a lot of rust repair and sheet metal to straighten out.
