Just picked up a '90 shorty cargo with a limited slip diff that turned out very handy with the snow we've been having. I hope to convert her into a mobile base camp for ski-touring and mountaineering exploits.

Hi and Happy New Year.


The shorty was a very compact but roomy van.

All the best to you.

That's EXACTLY what my 92 shorty looked like when I first got it.
Congrats and welcome!
