I had a great time with that van! Somewhere I have pictures of it buried in a water hole at the dunes with a very LARGE group of people watching us trying to get it out. those were the GOOD OLD DAYS!!!

Old school vans are the tits, my buddy in high school had a '79 GMC Vandura short wheel base. Damn near passed the turn before you had to turn.

I met Donn Collins in 1994, my only trip to TQ since 1995 was the last year for it. 1994 was when I was introduced to any type of organized wheeling, I was ready to go to TQ in 1995 but rolled my truck on teh freeway coming home from silver lake at Labor Day. Didn't bother going, but had I know it was the last TQ I would have tagged along with people I knew going.

I need to dig out my old pics, but they would all be around that time, not older. I do have some pics of me on the dunes, but it was around 1990 at earliest.

Best thread I have read through in a while! The saying, " I forgot more about wheeling than you know" seems fitting. I noticed most of the dates on the pictures are older than me, and I'm 31... Mad respect for the old guys!

Sweet pics. Its nice to see how a simple lift, some big tires and maybe a bigger motor can get you so far and how much fun you can have. No a days everything has to be so complicated and hi-tech. A build thread back then would of been 1 pg at most!!!!

that was a pathfinder conversion that I actually bought of the Chevy dealer's lot new. It took a beating and always had room for friends and a cooler!

Thought I'd bring this thread back from the dead seeing I have my dad's photo book from all his Old wheeling pics..

Here's is a pic of my dad's first Jeep in the News Paper. And kinda shows where my roots in wheeling come from.

Back in the early 80's when it was Legal to wheel out there.
