    Bought this van in late 2010,hopefully i'm going to get motovated and finish it this winter,haven't touched it for the last 4 1/2 years,will post some pictures of how it started and what i've done ,its 6/79 on the compliance plate so a fairly late bay ,story that came with it was the original owner ordered it , picked it up in germany toured around europe and then shipped it home,i bought it from the second owner,who had cut a pop top into it and then lost interest so it had just sat from 2006 till i found it , IMG_2844 - Copy.JPG IMG_2845.JPG IMG_2849.JPG IMG_2848.JPG IMG_2848.JPG
