I have to say this Astro hurts my eyes.

I dont know which makes me laugh more, saying $60,000 invested or the Buy it Now price of $24,900. It makes me think my is worth $34,900 and I have $70,000 invested.

If you want to pro street an Astro or Safari cheaply. Here is the perfect example, just move the leaf springs in. I would suggest making sure the axle is shorten the correct way tho. Some of it may be the picture, but the driveshaft is not straight back from the rear of the transmission. The pumpkin needs to be more to the passenger side. There are no shocks,will be a rough ride.

Hard for me to be objective as it isn't my cup of tea. For $60K he must have paid someone else to do everything Is my guess.

My take on the custom car/van thing is this. It is cheaper to do it yourself. You have choices, color, engine and build of such, On and on. It isn't beat to death when you get it. Most people who want that sort of thing generally can do it, and have their mind made up what they like.
Why build it if you don't want it. Makes me wonder, there no money to be made there.

I thought there was one similar to this on the Chillicothe Craigslist awhile back (probably a year or so by now).

I would think so as well. Yet I know dozens of jeep guys with highly customized rigs and they don't know a thing about them. "It's what the builder said was the latest and greatest".

It is definitely cheaper to have the resources to build yourself.

Even paying someone else, I dont see how there could be close $60,000 into this Astro. But I guess that covers the $24,900 for a $4,900 Astro.

I figure I have about $20,000, at 2012 prices, in heavy duty parts-no expense spared. I figure about $15,000 to tub it & install the V8, if a shop did it.

Probably around $4k in A/V, $4k van w/swap.

I don't see $60k and probably wouldn't pay over $10k for it.

Is a nice van though but a person could do it themselves, cheaper, if so inclined.
