Hello, new member, not an owner (yet)

I always liked these vans growing up, I admired the mechanical simplicity and the way they looked. Now I have increasing need of a van myself I'm on the lookout for an early 70s one as a project, I'm not sure how often they come up for sale but hopefully I can find one at some point (I don't mind a bit of rust here and there)

look forward to chatting to you guys some more

Panel vans are relatively rare, probably because most got hammered to death.

It's worth a post in CFs For Sale or Wanted though - better chance there than lost in umpteen introductions. :thumb:
