new member, new to astros

Postby raydonet [OP] » December 23rd 2015, 2:49am

hello, my name is ray I currently to don't have a astro but am looking, I current have a s10 std. cab v8 swap, that I have had for 12 years, within that 12 years I have gotten married, and now have two kids. and going riding in the s10 isn't as fun as it used to be "back in the day". I have the s10 for sale and want to buy a astro van and do a astro van v8 swap. so I can take the family out and still have a good time. I like doing the fabrication stuff to, so hopefully thru this site I can get info and tips and tricks to getting an astro van setup the way I want.

Hello and Welcome; ditto what Nick said above! There isn't much worth knowing about these vans that you can't find here on this site and V8 swaps seem to be among the more popular mods you can do. Good luck to you!

Welcome and can't wait to see something.
