He was willing to take the "best offer" and I feel it will be a "good investment".

    See the Official VCV Craigslist Decoder thread for additional clarification on the underlined terms. Thanks KK.
    Sorry Leroy but the front doors are pretty hacked, I would not consider them "complete".

    It is kind of crazy but..

    1st & 2nd Gen rears are as wide as 3rd Gen rears.

    These van have the widest rear ends out there.

    My guess would be the P.O. lost a rear and could not find a 5 lug rear.
    The lug pattern is different depending on the year.
    (Early 3rd gen G10s had the 5 on 4&3/4 bolt pattern up to 72 or 73)
    Or could read a measuring tape and had an 8 lug rear handy.
