    Just drove it home

    I found this site a couple of days ago after negotiating a price on this very van. Picked up today and drove it 300 miles home. First van since a VW back in the 80's. I can't wait to get started on fixing it up. My Wife and I own a bakery and we plan to spend the winter stripping it down and prepping for a wrap in the spring. Also, need to add seat belts, mirrors among other things.

    Welcome to VCVC!! Congrats on your purchase. Sounds like a great project and adventure. That seemed like a great deal for the price, especially if it drove 300 miles with no issue

    Thanks, I know I am going to need mirrors ASAP. Sticking my head out of the window to change lanes was pretty sketchy. Fixing the linkage will also need to be done right away. I am guessing it is a little more complex than a typical setup being that the axel is behind the steering column. Talked the guy down to $4500 but he would not let me have the futon or the Coors lamp for that price. Hah.
