If This Star Trek Van Is Rockin’ Don’t Come Knockin’February 6th, 2015
This 1978 GMC Vandura is the best van ever. It’s perfect for any Star Trek fan who is stuck in the ’70s and needs a geeky shag wagon. The owner has decided to sell it on Craigslist since he somehow managed to get laid and have a family despite being the sort of nerd who owns this van.
The van was built up from stock in 1979-1980, paint was done by G.S. Roy, a well known Canadian artist. I contacted Mr. Roy, who remembers painting this van as well as another for the owners cousin (that one was ‘mermaid’ themed. . .wish I knew where it was!). The van is a survivor and sat for years in storage owned by the same family from new to 2012 (33 years). . .I purchased it in 2013 from Ontario and shipped it out to the west coast here in Vancouver where I have enjoyed every day of owning it. NOT a vehicle for the shy, you absolutely cannot go anywhere without many thumbs up, cheers, and people waxing nostalgic about custom vans and/or Star Trek.
Can you believe that he only wants $9,500? This this is my dream Trek vessel.
