Hi Y'all, Greetings from SE Georgia. A little
background... A couple years ago I got this
neat looking old Chevy van from a friend of
mine. Swapped something for it, didn't even
know what year it was, but I could see the
potential! Fast forward to this year, my wife
Mary and I went to the Turkey rod run in
Daytona, where she informed me that next year
we WILL have a hot rod of some sort to cruise
in. But what?? I've built a couple of pro-
street cars, so it's got to be tubbed. After
we got back, we realized that we had only seen ONE early the whole time, so that's what
made up our minds to do the van. It's a 90 inch '65 panel, and it's going to be tubbed
with a narrowed Ford 9", and real big street
tires tucked up underneath. I'm going to use
the 355 out of my dirt car, and hopefully a
700r4. Well, sorry about being so long-winded, hope everyone has a happy and safe
holiday. Later, John

Thanks for the warm welcomes! I've been enjoying the site ever since a guy at work
introduced me to it. I think it's great the
way everyone tries to help each other out,
with no rudeness or cut-downs that seem so
common on other message boards. TV, your
setup sounds awesome, I've never messed with
a turbo, but I can appreciate the engineering
you put into it. I try to keep my stuff simple and cheap, so I do my own fabrication,
do a lot of trading, and use lots of used parts!
Later, John
