    Dann.... I am the same way plus the old boxes are great for storage and being able to keep track of whats what.  To make things even sicker after our tornado I had to toss out some old boxes/instructions/decals to some old kits,etc. I have due to there getting soaked and damaged beyond any use...now there in baggies....  Plus the old boxes remind me of better days and make me smile just looking at them.

    That is unbelievable luck it got there ok.  I am one that likes the old boxes and instructions...I had one guy send me one that he cut up the original box to make it fit in the one he had to ship it in...bummer.

    Congrats Mike...!   I wish you all much happiness together....

    Cool find...another note is I believe its the only van like this with the proper roof ribs they had...and it still has Mr T in it.  All small block Chevys from this era look the same.

    Xs 2 Dave....I have been through a lot myself and still do everyday.  Hang in there.  I have had days when I wondered why or how I can continue to build,etc....In my case what else am I going to do plus its all I know and a passion I have had since a kid...I am too old to change now.  There are lots of people here to talk with if you feel the need Dave.

    Just because something is rare it does not command a high price...some rare models can be gotten very reasonable still if one looks or shops around.  Sometimes you just get lucky too.  While some expect big bucks for stuff some do not or have no clue what they really have or what its worth...there only worth what someone is willing to pay for them anyway.  I once got a 68 Impala convertible SS promo in near mint condition at a garage sale for 5.oo and was happy to pay that for it...there pretty rare too.

    Id love to have a crew and single cab version but have too much funds issues to.  Glass is a big plus for them though.

    AWESOME Tom....I wish you had your own model kit company.

    Tom.... That is AWESOME...!!!!   I have always wanted to build a mobile home trailer but believe its out of my skill level plus its too hard to find supplies to try here that one can afford too...awesome work I understand your reluctance to weather it looks great like it is...
