        Bought my '73 new and did a custom interior in '74.
        Had it all these years and still looks good considering.

              It's been a long time since I added any photos or updates to this thread... oops!
              Since I've had a couple of requests for more photos, here are a few. Still haven't finished the interior work due to many other irons in the fire. LOL

                    Here's a few more. Ronald McDonald liked it, Daisy Duke (Catherine Bach) LOVED it! I built the back of the love seat into a pull-out bar kinda thing. We have lots of fun going to van shows and camping from time to time. Stacy and I have always liked Steve Miller and the colors just go so well with the overall theme. We took it to an outdoor Steve Miller/Peter Frampton concert and camped overnight at the venue. THAT crowd really loved it!

                        My mom and dad bought a Dodge custom van new in 1978. Factory 360. It was awesome. Had orange carpet throughout. Lights along the top ect. That was a great van. It was called a Good Times Machine.

                        I'm loving the Groove Machine pics!!!! Takes me back when I had my 75 Tradesman Van and was in a van club. We used to do 3 or 4 Van-ins every year.

                        Those were the days :D

                          Damn I was a kid back in the 70s. I saw the custom van craze thru a kids eyes. I built van models had gull wing doors on em, and put custom interiors in them with "shag carpeting" back then lol. Wanted a 2WD 77 tradesman 200 so bad. Longer than the 100 model to give you some roominess but not as long as the long assed B300 maxivan. Used to look thru JC Whitney catalog all the time at all the cool van accessories. Especially the fender flare kits, tube grilles, porthole windows, and zoomie exhausts, dreaming about what a custom van would look like in my eyes.

                          There used to be a cool van picture maker toy from Tomy back then. Called Little Van Goes I think. You would put different templates in the picture maker and it had a bunch of different plates you fit together to make different dodge vans. Kinda like a design your own van thing. I played with that forever. May need to get another one off Ebay for my son and I to play with.
