Smiley, are we going to get the red van back in the upper left. It is kind of a trademark of VCVC. I miss it.

What Greg said!
Definitly a trade mark of VCVC.

Too much blue and grey is altering my mood terribly.

I had no idea the red van would be missed. Years ago, there was talk of changing it out.

I'll see if I can work it in somewhere.

yes bill, that was what my van looked like 6 or 7 years ago, before i owned it. i think the photo was taken when roger moyles owned it. it is now a very different van from what that photo shows. different color, different wheels, different everything.
i remember first finding this site when i started searching for an early van (to scratch and itch), and seeing that particular van up in the corner. it was almost identical to a low-mileage van i had as a daily driver back in the early 1980's. when it came up for sale, my wife and i drove down to new york with cash in hand and a trailer to bring it home. the rest of course is history. john

I thought that was BZ's van??? or maybe he took the picture???

I miss it too, or maybe we can have a 'van of the month' to grace the web page. (your van in the upper left for a month) send a pic and take a number. dont the Ford guys do that on theirs?

I thought the red van belonged to a guy in New Orleans that painted it with a roller.

Knew Roger Moyles owned the van at one time.

Jus' a thought: why not put everybodys van on the site, one day each in till you've gone thru the roster, then back to the start?

Once I get all the remaining site projects finished, I'll find a way to work the red van in. It won't be in its customary corner though.

LIKE! I plan on having my tranny rebuild with some big fat 295's under the rear end this summer. so I'll be doing the burn out contest for sure if they have it. along with the night at the drag strip.
