The Stealth Van Takes On A New Shape!

With a big trip planned for this spring I did some serious soul searching and made a decision.  It was time to get practical, the VW Beetle has been traded off.

The new Stealth Van will be a Dodge Grand Caravan with Stow and Go Seating.  I just brought her home and will be starting the conversion process (Once again) when the snow disappears.

Of course this means more updates, more information, and I promise to update the progress regularly.  All for now, more to come.
