Sweet,Anyone who buys one and doesn't want the minibike I can help with that. I have really wanted this one for awhile now and I'm glad it finally came out.I know what the minibike is,but hows the vandal itself?Decent kit or not work the plastic its made of?

Thanks for the heads-up , Casey !
I had this kit back in circa 1977 (second issue ? 1972 was its original issue , I believe ... ) . Had to have it : VANDAL ! , the name spoke to me !
It's based upon the Chevy Van of '70 & earlier ; but that BOSS 429 is a bit of a head scratcher ... LS-6 sounds better to me . But , that's my -opinion- .
I'm quite looking forward to buying one of these ! I may even try to partially convert it back to a sembelance of its front clip's stock features (but keep the custom grille / CIBI Headlights) , and *perhaps* swing a 396/427/454 in place of the Boss .
My favourite feature of this kit : the psychedelic posters !

I would like to see the Vanbulance version too! Kinda has a "Mother, Jugs and Speed" feel to it!

Please post pics if so, thanks!

The vanbulance is pretty much the same model, except the bumpers, decals and the interier and the hightop part on the roof, , i just rebuilt a vabulance, they are both cool kits.

I would almost buy that for the mini bike alone! Like Austin, if anyone gets one and happens to not want the mini bike, please let me know!
