1984 Ford Racevan

Started on June 16 by Joe Gearin

This van was purchased from a faithful GRM reader, who allowed us to take it off of his hands for the princely sum of $500. Since then the van has been gutted, and a basic renovation has begun. Mural ideas for the outside are welcome! And yes, the toilet, fridge, sink, and stovetop are all operational!

Total spent up to this point is a heady $1,100.00 Look for this to be superbitchin for less than $3K!

You could practically live in that thing! As for the mural, how 'bout the GRM angry shifter guy?

Thanks for the input guys. I like the BMW art car idea. The shifter guy would be cool, but I don't think the powers that be here at GRM want to be associated with this van. It may be a little to......um......organic. I think running a GRM sticker will be enough! I was thinking of going with a GT350 rocker stripe, as it is a Ford. I'm also considering mural ideas for the top's back panel. I figure folks approaching me on the highway, or stuck in traffic behind me should have something interesting to look at!

A mural on the back should be of the inside of the van if viewed from the back. As if the back of the fan was transparent. Then, inside....dogs playing poker.
