ID:	34429As the title states, I bought my first vehicle in 1970 and it was a 64 Chevy Van. I have decided to start the search to find another. Thank you to whomever created this forum as it will prove helpful as I find, rebuild, and create another 64. I will try and stay quiet and learn as much as possible. Thank you in advance for the knowledge I will be getting in here.

    Welcome

    Glad you could join us! There are more guys here that have BTDT than any other forum.
    Just ask and you will see. Thanks goes to Smiley. He started the site.

    Should be a great adventure finding and restoring another van! Check Craigslist or Ebay.

    108vanguy is right in your area. He is quite possibly the hardest working man in the van biz...
    Im sure he will post here soon.

    Awesome pic from back in the day. Have any others?

    welcome Ken! I too bought my first van (1965) in 1970, except, I still have it. (wasn't my first car though, that was a 1951 Ford convertible with Olds engine in 1965).

    Good luck finding another one, they are still out there. Those outside mirrors are very interesting, look like they will swing out for towing a trailer. I had to build similar mirrors when I started towing, but your's look a lot better than mine.

    Welcome...my first car in 1972 was a '66 Chevy Van...and I have relived a part of my youth by buying a similar 1964 about 5 years ago...you will enjoy the experience very much, many here own old vans for the same reason! Look around here and other sites with ads, they are out there especially in CA....
