I retired (from California state service) to Arizona a couple of years ago but still drive over to the California coast to surf a couple of times a month. So, I got this van so I could secure my surfboards and have a place to rest. I always wanted a classic van, but, it’s not really practical. I also scuba dive. Again, the van will be a secure place to keep my gear. I love projects, and I just know people that have been doing this for a long time have come up with some great ideas. Here to learn.
