    Bring that van to shari's restaurant at Oregon City Shopping Center off 205 Sunday at 10 AM. there will be several of us there who would love to see it. I'll be bringing my '70 108 4X4. And a set of flares that might work for you, if I can find'em.

    Cool

    It is great to see that there will be additional people at Sherries the more the merrier. Looking forward to meet everybody and talk Chevy van talk. We could make a good showing at the Econo rally.

    I was wondering about the possibility of moving my engine forward when I convert mine, but it looked like the sump would be directly over the front axle.

    Pat, I can't get through looking at you van pics. I love that thing, great stance. Does your state have regulations about tires must be tucked under fenders or flares in your case. I think it looks great just the way it is, just add a set of 33-12.50-15 BFG All Terrain T/As. There are no laws om Louisiana books tires and fenders.

    BTW: What did you use to cover the doghouse?

    The whole int.& dog house I covered in foss. Doghouse cover is one chunk streched. It came out very nice. Got it from a local van store. Cant wait till its all painted so I can use it again. Pepsi red will look good.
