Still here too. I'll be around until someone turns off the lights and locks the door. Other than normal maintenance the Smilievan got new tires and a paint job. At 18 years old it was getting a bit tired looking. Now it looks like new again. The mileage is at 273,000. Still running good. I've never owned a vehicle with this kind of mileage. I'm impressed to say the least.

Sounds about like me and getting my heap running. Still sitting in the garage. Needs trans work, an accessory bracket worked up or my intake re-worked (thinking spacers on the Stealth Ram) and lastly for me to actually figure out where the title is so I can register it again. Or apply for a lost title. Then it's on to tuning. Never ends, does it?
