Champange in color. Body in great condition. Interior is good. Van needs new battery and a little wiring to battery. Im am selling very cheap due to this- 500 is the final price. You will need to tow it with me to the deparment of motor vehicles so we can get a quick inspection to recieve a new title and then you can take it from there.

i found this ad today, and i just love it, and can picture me driving my van with a tow rope and some guy with a cigar behind me in some wreck of a van, so we could get a title and some cash.
nice deal huh? maybe later i could tow you to work, or school, maybe i could just tow you around forever, and never get the title, just the joy of towing you around. like a pet. funny.

newest van news.

well the van has been laid up for two months with three problems, one, a sheared off alternator mounting bolt, deep in the block and now with a sheared off easy out deep within also, second problem, the positive terminal has snapped off and only works with a vise grip crushed on to it, three is the mysterious morning marine layer stalling syndrome, very frustrating and funny. but all these illnesses will be taking care of slowly, we can't go camping at the beaches until my back heals up and i can drive for hours again, with luck, i may have to just move closer to some beach, within 30 minutes would be ideal. all and all though i can't complain my baby van has always taking care of me, from here to Vermont to Delaware and back. and all that i have ever really worked on is the fuel lines and the CV joints. change the oil and drive baby, slow, and floaty.

the world is a van

writing a list today of what i was going to bring into space with me and the boys, i realized that my list was very similar to a camping list, so lets just go camping instead, yeah. here we are at la push in the old days parked in the berms, that's Stowe's wasaabi. he slept in the trunk with the back seat pushed down and modified. i sleep in the bed like a god living the life, with the curtains open, the moon light and northern lights burning a smile on to my face.
