After 12 years, this Safari returns

Postby Magscorch [OP] » August 17th 2020, 2:14am

So about 12 years ago, in 2008, my grandpa (safarirod) registered to this site. He had a 93 Safari, 350 SBC, 400 turbo, matte black. 11 years later he passes his now white '93 Safari with a 383 SBC, stage 5 cam, and FiTech, down to his only grandson, me. He passed away November 2019, and told me about this site when he passed the van onto me. I am currently going to trade school for automotive repair, and I'm a HUGE car guy, and my first project is gonna be installing some Hedman 68600 headers.

Welcome to the site can't wait to see your van. My 89 has a 350 in it now but I hopefully can do a 383 stroker some day.

Here she is! Sadly, I dont have a picture of it when it was black, however my dad took a video of it when me and my grandpa did a "drive around the ballpark" car cruise day. The only thing you could hear was from a kid in front of my dad saying "That van is kinda scary". Also, the engine bay is a little dirty, but I'm getting to it!
