    Did anyone see the circuit city comercial with the orange windowless 90 inch wheelbase
    econoline. It was great just to see that kind of exposure of one of the old fleet vans from the sixties. Wished it could of been an a square lined chevy. I would have stayed up all night trying to record that.

    If you want to see it try ESPN.

    no i didnt see it, but if you have taco bell commercials on your tv, there was a 60's model chevy van in the commercial, it was the one when the guy at the drive thru dropped a taco bell bag and the little rat dog said "thanks friend" and then you see the back of the van as it drives off. also if you have seen the movie "forest gump" there was a part in the movie when forest was talking to jenny after he saw her in the crowd of the war protestors, you know the part when she walked through the water below the wash. monument. afterwards in the movie, she was getting on a bus to leave and for a split second, the camera turns and their it was, a blue and white chevy van, 67-69, i think, my buddy pointed it out to me and i didnt see it until i looked for it.

    check it out

    I've got the pics from the Taco Bell commercials here: www.vcvc.org/taco.html

    That Circuit City commercial is really cool. Lots of different camera angles on the van!

    There's another page featuring vans in movies here: www.vcvc.org/film.html

    so i guess no one saw the one on forrest gump i am upset!!! HAHAHAHA! just kidding, i got an idea, why dont we all get together and make our own version of easy rider, we can call it "easy wider" smiley can play peter fonda's part and vanner68 can play dennis hopper's part. we all can get our vans together and drive from town to town raising a little h**l, what do you think? i picked wider because the vans are so wide. GENIUS!! DON'T YOU THINK??
