    Proud New Owner Of A VCV

    Hey Y'all !!

    Well, after several years and a false start or 2, I have been blessed to come into ownership of a 66 Chevy Sportvan/Future Mystery Machine.
    Found it north of Pensacola, By way of the C.L. ad being posted here. P.O. states it came from west TX. It even has a (slightly worn) VCVC decal on the back window. There's a lil bit of work ahead of me, but the end result will be great. I'm grateful I can ask for advice or help here on VCVC.
