Here’s mine, she’s a 1988 Caravelle GL with a WBX 2.1 Dj auto with the original 7 seat interior. I bought her back at the beginning of the summer to be my daily to and from work, my Bay is my camper so I will be keeping her as a 7 seater.

And yes, my lad decided he was going to help me clean the van (it was a bit of a state when we got it!)

Nice Bamboo Billy. Brings back memories of my first van (2000) which was the same colour but had terrible seams. How does it run?

The wood looks good on it, a roof rack and surf boards would make it look very beach ready.
