Driving a panel,having blast

Been driving my 69 panel around lot lately. Man this thing gets more stares than the 60 vette does. Seems very few even know they ever existed. Been asked 1/2 dozen times why I welded windows up on suburban. How long it take me make a suburban look like that. Even one guy telling me its a van not a truck.Will leave out what I told him after he told me if I listened I might learn something.

Its blast seeing how folks turn to see exactly what it is. The cammed 454 with headers and 3" magna flows have nothing to do with it I am sure. That and old rag racer sitting behind loud petal.LMAO

Now If I can fix heater,windshield wipers so they work all the time and oh yea dimmer switch.Heck who needs that crap.LMAO
Only the stupid know too much to learn something new.

Re: Driving a panel,having blast

Glad to hear you're enjoying your panel. I love mine (65), it always gets looks and thumbs up, but I get the same kind of comments:
1. why are there no windows in your suburban?
2. cool van
3. neat cargo truck
4. why did you paint your hearst red? LOL
