I've been wanting to build another custom van for a while. Finally decided my Pinto funny car needed a tow vehicle. I built the van from a mint unbuilt AMT '75 kit and designed my own custom decals to match the Pinto. There are more pics and all the build details at the link.

That is cool! Is that yellow paint, or did you clearcoat the plastic it was molded in?

As mentioned above with "Keep on truckin" Man this looks straight out of and old Truckin' Mag shoot. Awesome build and another thing I love is the single axle trailer. All together what a combo!
