Got word a while back from Scott that AACA had wanted his van Emerald Express for a display. The kicker being that they would need it from May 17 to Oct 13. Scott passed not wanting to be without his van all summer. Fortunately we were able to get Phil and Wendy to agree to put Nautique in the display. The showboard was an ad-van-ture that I took on. Dirty Donny was kind enough to let us use some of his art on the showboard This also made me delve a bit into the history of custom vans and that was a very good thing. I connected with one of the original members of Associated vans in California. Their club was formed way back in 1966 ! I'm hoping to see Beebe and some of their other members at the event following. Joe Madonia also supplied some images from the past from his vast collection. Will be doing something with Joe to showcase his Vanning Museum soon.
Vanfest 2013 is just weeks away now, looking forward to that.
