about 2 months ago I purged one of my most favorite vans ever...RATCHET...been kinda of emotional about the decision. happy it got a great home and able to stay updated on it's new home and family(see below)
Will be posting more of the pictures I took of it before it was sold soon as I get my head out of my ass. And now on the lookout for a dodge or delica with great vibes to pillage in next.
Saturday night 8pm in Los Angeles and our apt has no AC, its like a pizza oven in this summer heat. My girl suggests we go sleep in Angeles Forest. We packed up dinner, grabbed a bundle of wood and some beer and headed up Angels Crest highway. We found an open campsite and got a fire going and ate dinner then spent the rest of the night drinking beers, star gazing and just having a good time together.
Waking up when you arrive to a camp site in the dark is always exciteing. Along our road trip to chicago we rollied into a lot of camprounds late at night. When we would wake up we were blown away having no expectation or even refrence of what youd see, its a great feeling. After enjoying alittle sunrise and nature noises we made our way back home stopping to chack out a little bit of the rincon trail along the way. It was a great night with my main squeeze, I am one lucky guy. Queue Sammy Johns "Chevy Van"

Kurt sent us some pics of his Corvair and a little story about his van. Good luck with the satanic corvair dude, use a club and a viper alarm system.
"Its a 1963 corvair cargo van I found in ventura on craigslist. It didnt run, has plenty of rust, and was a mice hotel for years but it was a good price. I buy it and tow it home. I didnt want it to sit so I did some research and send it to the shop for a motor install and going over. So I head over to the dmv and this thing has been stollen twice, has 2 different lisence plate numbers on file, no title, been through about 5 people in the last year, and the back fees I paid came to exactly $666.00. Devil van."
Was out on a beer run and saw my man Ryan's hot box posted up so i stopped for a quick snap. Ryan is a good dude, his van made the cover of Rolling Heavy. Check him out here at All Night All Night
I thought the only way to get the van ready for the Wet Hot Summer van show in Hollywood was to run her through the mud a few times. I got to Azuza canyon at 8am when they open and had the whole place to myself. Ran thru some mud holes, played in the sand, water crossings and even climed a little. The van ate it all up for breakfast. Pretty pumped that this all happened 2 hrs before show entrance.
A good group of vans rallied together to see Thee Tee Pees, The Sloths and The Premiers at the viva cantina. We had a nice little cruise thru griffith park and then rib'd it up at the cantina. Beerwolf shredded, Joe ballanced a margarita big enough to breed manatees in on his head and all around good times getting loose. No way to hold my head that didnt hurt this mornin.
