This van has seen many ways of life over the years. It was a delivery van for SEARS a daily driver. it was parked for around 15 years before I got it. I installed hydraulics on it to make it move up and down and bounce off the ground. It was a low rider. In 2003 I rebuilt the suspension to race it on the auto cross track there are some photos of it out on the track. It lives on now as the name of my band GREENBRIER and as my toy. Right now its getting the body worked over again should be painted in the summer of 2005.
