I Love Craigslist: 1969 OLD SCHOOL BAD ASS VAN

People complain that there is too much negativity in the world...which seems oddly self-fulfilling, but if you ever find the world getting you down, just head to your local craigslist, because the optimism overflows the cracked-in-half-cup like a California estuary.  Seriously, where else will you find people asking 5 to 10 times what they will ever get in value for something and being completely unaware of reality.  Find this 1969 OLD SCHOOL BAD ASS VAN offered for $3,500 in Santa Fe, NM via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.


Only a full fledged "life is like a box of chocolates" optimist would ask $3500 for an old Ford van that "
RUNS AND DRIVES GOOD BUT NEEDS A CARB".  Is that all?  I'm sure there is no need to post more than one picture of this old gal, because someone will be showing up at your door with cash any minute now.

  2. I RODE IN THAT VAN! About 20 years ago, from Santa Fe to Albuquerque, NM, at about 4:00 am. Same color, same long wheelbase. It was a POS then, so maybe they fixed it up a bit. The only seat was the driver's, so I had to squat in the back on jumper cables, plumbing supplies, junk of all sorts. The driver kept it at a death-defying 80 mph all the way. When I arrived at the ABQ airport I had to break into my suitcase for a clean pair of underwear.
