As promised, I wanted to post about the awesomely cool hippie vans I saw last weekend in Medicine Park, Okla. As fun as it was, it only more than doubled my obsession/love/want for one I can call my very own. I have been searching and scouring Craigslist, eBay, want ads, etc. all week trying to find the perfect one. It is still a work in progress. It would probably help if I knew something about motors and other mechanicy type things, but I do not. Daddy's gonna have to take the reign on this one for sure! ;)
I have an idea in my head of how I want it to look. And, by that I mean I want it to run. No just kidding, I do have some standards. Like the ability to be painted vintage light pink. I don't really want the sink and stove. However, I can take that out. Back seats would be a plus ... air conditioner would also be a plus, but the only ones I have found with a/c have been a little newer. I am not opposed to newer though, again ... as long as it runs!
The ones in Medicine Park were all different. Some vans were restored really nice and some were still used to live in/camp in. The orange one pictured below was actually restored recently and most of the outside and interior is original. I love the color. It would have to be made into the official game day cruiser to all OSU games, of course.
Until my little heart finds a van, I guess I will just look at these beauties and wait for my
ship van to come in.
