* The Van Creeps vannin’ club had a little shindig a couple weeks ago, and Chopperdave was there to snap some pics. Mark Choiniere also filmed a most excellent video of the show, and the whole thing’s got Mr. Angry wanting to do up a flat black A-100.
*Couple of little-known facts for ya today. First, the Deora’s windshield was actually taken from a Ford station wagon. Second, Ford first used the Explorer name not on a 1990s SUV, but on a show truck that was, in essence, a knockoff of the Deora.
*”When shopping for your next utility truck to explore Mare Tranquillitatis, consider Mercedes-Benz.”
* Tom over at Corvair Fleet Management recently found this most excellent photo of a shorty Corvan, dubbed “crampside.”
* Finally, it’s no wacky van, but it’s cool nonetheless: Shady Dell in Bisbee, Arizona, is a trailer park made up of just vintage trailers, along with a bus and a cabin cruiser turned into a camper. Must see this next time I’m in AZ. (via)
