Good work, JB3.

What transmission did you use for your van?

There are a lot of old 80s Benzes out there starting to lose the battle with rust but their engines are still the same old bullet-proof design. Since your Astro is a S-10 pickup chassis with a van body, a small pickup project would seem to be feasible.
