Ron was gracious enough to give us a guided tour of the Canbra Speed Shop. They were putting the finishing touches on 3 vans that had the GNRS the day they moved them in! Here's Deathwish an iconic van from the 70s that they did an amazing job restoring.
Coby and I in front of Vango. It was great to see him again. He had 2 vehicles in the show including one of the most talked about hot rods of 2023 Saint Christopher.
The Boogie Van, one of the vans in the GNRS Keep on Truckin van display.
Jeff is planning at the 50th Nats with it.
Ron's Octopus's Garden, one of the vans in the GNRS Keep on Truckin van display that Ron also coordinated.
Dave was super busy so he let us take a self guided tour of the amazing collection in the Galpin Speed Shop.
The December page from the 2022 Showvans calendar signed by Ryan and Dave.It would have great to get Gary to sign the Disco Van picture but we ran out of time to go that far north.
Met up with Chip during the awatds on Sunday. Doesn't that Chevy look like the one they overhauled for Mike, but in orange :).
We walked into a sandwich shop beside Foose's and a guy called out: "Are you guys vanners?". It was Terry Cook, more about him coming up soon.
Catherine let me display my 50th Nats banner all weekend with her van. Billo also had one on display outside in the Grand Daddy Drive In.
