Yes dear, youre right, I'm wrong, it'll never happen again..

Postby RECox286 [OP] » March 22nd 2012, 4:07pm

Recently, I've been considering a radical idea, having driven Astros and Safaris configured both as a "family car" and as a "work truck".

What do youse guys think of this idea ? Take out the rear seating, weld the side and rear doors shut, and turn the bus into a

(wait for it)



Sports truck !

Something sorta like that has been done. A cargo sport. Added a turbo and roll cage in the back. If you object to watching a video with a Ford in it then don't click the link. The van is in the second half of the video.

That is no sport van!
This one however.. It still is a Furd but you wouldn't be able to keep up with it in your local traffic light Grand Prix.

1985 Astro conversion, engine type N 4.3 4BBL

If you can't fix it with a hammer you've got an electrical problem!

Parts are cheap breakdowns expensive.
