    Before I quote a transport, I need to see how well it rolls and probably check on some different tires and wheels for a trip that far. As for Richie's 66, I'm trying to thin my herd of VCVans, not so much exchange them.
    Here's some more pics from last year. It also has a dash pad, 2 bench seats and 6 pop outs. "Graffiti" was done to slow down the surface rust.

    I have been thinking a lot about this Van, I've decided I want to buy the Van. I will call you later and we can figure out how to get it down to my house.

    SOLD

    Congratulations Russell! I have decided to turn down other higher offers and sell to Russell. I was really hoping that it would stay in the club. Of all the VCVans I have ever owned, this one is the sweetest by far. I'll not be able to do it the justice it deserves so this HandiBus Custom has to change hands. I'll be taking more pics and posting them up as the "BEFORE" condition. I leave it to Russell to post up the "DURING" and "AFTER" pics. BTW, Russell has agreed to give me the first shot at buying this VCVan back if he ever decides to let it go. It's a small comfort to know that I may get this HandiBus Custom back some day.
