That was a project well done. 

Well put. Thank you.

Agreed, sad to see it go, but it lived out its purpose. And it was AWESOME!

NOT A CANOE. REPEAT NOT A CANOE.

 

I'm resurrecting this thing because it hit radwood somehow and is making the rounds across the Facebook car groups and some kneejerk jackasses want to armchair qb this thing without understanding what it is.

Wait. ?

I thought it got sent to the crusher. ?

How is it making the rounds?

Is there another one?

No- some guy posted a pic of it from a car show on one of many car based Facebook groups- said the pic was a few years old. What's old is new again. It's definitely this one- no one else is doing the screaming eagle on a dust buster. I think it's in conjunction with an older APv/transport that's been set on some Corvette saw blades that the kids are all excited about (admittedly, me too. It looks awesome)

Interesting. I wondered why this thread had popped back up. Yeah, I street registered it for a summer up here in Michigan and took it to a couple of car shows. I'm not surprised some people took pictures of it.

Yes, this van is definitely in pieces. The engine and transmission are in a coworker's Fiero race car. A rocker panel is on my garage wall. The wheels and tires are on the Pontiac G6 of some random guy on Craigslist. The passenger seat is in my basement waiting to be made into a desk chair. And the body and chassis went to Omni Source for scrap metal.

I, too, saw it make the rounds on social media recently, specifically a body swap/frame swap FB group. Some of it was armchair engineering, but most of what I saw was admiration of its badassery. It was a nice surprise to see pop up!
