Hey Juice,
This batch is quite 'different' from the '70's style, huh ?! The kids(young and older) are surely awed by all the wings and things and the car crafter in us has GOT to be curious on "How'd they do THAT?!" They've got to have to assemble most of them on site where ever they show 'em . TOTALLY unstreetable !!

Yeah... the vans. The 70's. On every other street you would see one w/ air shocks jacked up (like it was in "heat") & had a moon roof/window. Slotted mags.... smoke coming out the roof vent.... it was heavy man, really heavy.

Default Vans??

Remember the 70's van craze?

All too well. Have to admit, they were cool party wagons. Oddly enough, the girls loved'em. Had a buddy that had one of the really cool conversion vans with all the trimmings, including a bed. Remember having a few good (and interesting) times in a couple of those vans.
