A van and some audio bits and bobs to make said van bump.

Now my wish list is the KLIM Badlands Pro jacket. You all should take up a collection and hook me up. I wear an XL, and want the basic black model.

Thanks in advance.

Big"lightintheloafers"

Instead of a Klim, maybe a coupon for getting your nails done?

Are you a homophobe Mikey? Not to worry, you're not my type anyway, too hairy for me you are.

Didn't Al Capone get manicures?

A little refinement never hurts anyone.

Hopefully my body hair doesn't fall out then.

I never ran with Al, wouldn't know.

I'm refined. Every once in a while I drink wine, THAT HAS A CORK IN THE BOTTLE.

This are seriously awesome vans. If the driver's side mirror is stock it appears that this is from the 1985-1988 model years. My first Astro/Safari was a 1986. Having owned 7 of these vans so far, I prefer the 1996 and later models. Let me know if you have any questions / need tips maintaining this thing.

Ah, well according to the title its a 93. Thanks for the offer! I need to get around to pulling the CEL codes (intermittently on, but ehhh) and probably swap the shocks and check the plugs and air filters (cabin and interior). Most annoyingly, the hitch mounting points on the body are totally rusted out as seen here:



And here:




So it really isn't mounted or much of anything. Looks like it's time to get creative with the welder once the weather turns as I'd like to put a bike carrier on there.


On the bright side, I picked up even more bits and bobs. Front end and sundries off of a dirt dr350 (thanks TMM) and a mid 80s rm125 fork set and wheel.

I'm guilty of doing this to multiple people on a hillclimb on bigdogs old bike in front of bigdog. Does that make me a bad person?
