    gordon jones mini van

    Hi, does anyone know whatever happened to the chevy powered mini van that was built by gordon jones in the mid 80s? It was a car that blew my mind as a 10 year old, It started off porsche red and was later resprayed in peppermint green with cream flames.
    I remember it coming up for sale around 1996, and ive often wondered what happened to it, be great to see it back on the scene again!!!
    cheers. paul

    yes mate, thats right, apparently it took him only 9 months to build it too! Thats bloody good going when you consider the quality of finish too.

    Re: gordon jones mini van

    Surely someone knows what happened to this van, has someone got it tucked away somewhere?
