Thanks Keith, looking forward to it. Van needs doorpanels and armrests in the front, maybe an upgraded stereo, and possibly some rims. The rear is a bit noisy to so i will have to look into some searches on rearend rebuilds here, but all in all I'm happy to have it.

I have owned a few of these vans and enjoyed each and every one of them. Seems like the more I drive them, the better I feel about them. They are easy to drive and now-a-days, people have to look up to you.

Welcome to the forum (why is it I feel like I am always the last to say that?)

Nice van you got there. Looks real clean.

Glad we got another Floridaian here now.
