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

What a van that is, I still remember now walking into my newsagents as a 10 year old back in 1986 and seeing this on the cover of street machine and badgering my mom to buy it me. I still have that mag to this day, and the van still does it for me now, so yeh, more pictures would be very greatfully recieved please.
cheers. paul
