    Great piece of nostalgia and one of the few RVs that actually drive like a car.

    Thanks Jim, wow these things were quick, and as Dave said drive like a car mainly because that is what they are, I could be tempted but I wont :ROFLMAO: there are about 10 of them in this country, I like them just because they are so different

    All the best Rick

    If I could get my hands on that van I would definitely join RVOC... :thumb:

    If you don't understand I can't explain... it is a historic vehicle thing...

    JJ :Cool:


    PS. with the tag axle does that mean it is front wheel drive?

    30 years in storage? Could be a stack of problems from the tyres to the roof aircon's, looks nice but could be a real money pit.

    I know just what you mean JJ trouble is these are possibly the worst RV ever produced on fuel :Blush: boy have they got a drink problem, other than that they are one of the best driving RV's that small.

    All the best Rick

    Front wheel drive with drivetrain from the Oldsmobile Toronado. V8 455 cu in,7.5 litre.
    With a tailwind around 9 MPG but if you really try you can get it down to around 5.
    Eats front tyres for lunch and will sit at 90 MPH all day without breaking sweat.
