Vanning


Vanning is a compulsion, an obsession, an occupation, an affliction, a fascination, a fate. It is not a hobby. Those who do it, must. Those who don't, think it's a waste of time. For me it is a calling.

Its been awhile

MY LIFE HAS BEEN UPSIDE DOWN LATELY WITH ALL THAT HAS BEEN GOING ON HERE. WORK HAS BEEN OFF A LITTLE, BUT I'VE BEEN KEEPING BUSY WITH PROJECTS AROUND HERE FROM STRIPPING WALL PAPER AND PAINTING TO PAINTING A BUNCH MORE CANS. I ALSO HAVE A PEDAL VAN PROJECT THAT I'LL SHOW YOU AS IT GOES ALONG . IT WILL BE TIME TO GO TO THE TURKEY RUN IN FLA. SHORTLY. THIS YEAR I WILL BE JOINED BY KENNY AND THE RED HEAD. WHAT A HOOT THAT SHOULD BE. THEN A COUPLE WEEKS LATER, ITS OFF TO MOON'S PARTY AND THE BRUSH OFF,AGAIN. I REALLY NEED TO GET MY PROJECT STARTED FOR THAT ONE. FOOTBALL SEASON IS ALMOST OVER. ITS BEEN A FUN ONE BUT IT HAS FLOWN BY. WE HAD AN IMPROMPTU TRIP TO THE OSU/ NORTHWESTERN GAME YESTERDAY. IT WAS A LOT OF FUN.THEIR STADIUM IS THE SMALLEST IN THE BIG TEN BUT IT IS A GREAT PLACE TO SEE A GAME. BUT BEING ON THE NORTH SIDE OF CHICAGO IT WAS WINDY AND COLD!

HERE'S TOMMY IN HIS NEW SUIT. WE WANTED TO STAY WARM.. SANTA COULD USE THIS ONE..



THIS IS THE BUCKEYES EQUIPMENT TRUCK. I'M WORKING ON GETTING TO STRIPE THE TRACTOR. A BUDDY OF MINE DID THE MURALS, HOPEFULLY I'LL GET TO THROW A FEW LINES ON IT YET THIS YEAR.








THIS IS ONE OF 3 FIBREGLASS VAN BODIES I HAVE ACQUIRED OVER THE YEARS. THEY WERE MADE AS GO CART BODIES,BUT I'M TURNING THEM INTO PEDAL CARS SINCE MOST SHOWS I GO TO WON'T LET YOU HAVE MOTORIZED CARTS. I HAVE A FORD, CHEVY, AND ASTRO BODY ,THAT I'M GOING TO PAINT TO MAKE MINIATURES OF ALL MY VANS... KOOL!


THE OLD FORD BODY NEEDS SOME WORK.. THE ROOF HOLE WHERE YOU SIT TO DRIVE WAS TO FAR FORWARD SO I HAD TO MOVE IT AS WELL AS FILL THE WINDOW HOLES IN THE REAR. THATS FOR TOMORROW

Awesome! I love my Bedford vans and was toying with the idea of a go kart version for my son. Cool
