*** VAN CBP ***
Posted by Anonymous on Friday, January 28, 2005 4:45 PM
Hey there fellow addicts. I just bought me a killer project. I cant wait to get this started.

The rules would be as follows
Start Date: Now
End Date: July 3rd 2005 Need to have the 4th off. Thats about 5 months.
Has to be a VAN or started life as one.
Any scale.
Can be a project you already started or completed.
Can be factory stock, custom, drag, pro street, etc.
Please if you can, Post Progress pics, but not required.
Id love to have participation in this one. Ive seen some killer van builds out there.

I started making Revell's 70 custom van into an ambulance, but its been sitting idle for some time, this might get me to get back to work on it.

Well here is the Engine so far. I converted it from a Hilborne Injected Small Block Chevy to a 8-71 Blown, alkie injected, dual magneto Alison Hemi. I Drilled the mags and valve covers and starter for the wiring. What a pain to run 16 wires, but man was it worth it!

Im on a roll. The detail is minimal. 8 step instructions. No interior is supplied with the kit, but im not finished with it yet. The motor parts to convert it to a hemi came from a McDonalds diecast dragster. I hate diecast so had no regrets rippin it apart for a real car.

Hey Gary, wondered where u been hidingConfusedBlindfold The wheels are the 5 spokes that came with the kid. Only thing different from box stock is the tires, heads, valvecovers, intake, blower and plug wires, batteries and fuel cell. other than that shes Box Stock.
