    I'm back in the Chevy game!

    Within days of my boy's 16th birthday I was given the opportunity to buy back my 64 ChevyVan! I had sold it a few years back and actually got to do some work on it for my buddy who had bought it.

    So we bought it back for my son's first ride. It came back to me minus and engine or transmission but completely rewired.

    Today we cleaned up a 350/700r4 combo and dropped it in. Time to make up the driveshaft and a trans crossmember.

    I've kept up on Facebook but I know this is the best place to continue sharing and learning. Feels great to be back. I'll get my boy to join here and introduce himself.

    I've been absent long enough to forget how to add pics, maybe just a phone issue. I'll post links to a couple threads about this van
