For those of you who crave the "Glory Days" of vanning but cant figure out how to work that flux capacitor right. I've done you all a huge favor! I'm taking you back to an issue of Truck & Van Ideas June 1979. The Warlord. Giving the centerfold of the month and rightfully so. The Warlord is a 1975 Dodge B-200 chopped eight inches, running Western Bullet wheels, ground effects and a chin spoiler that would make Jay Leno proud! This little Dodge had seen big changes in it's day. It was first featured in Truck & Van Ideas November 1976 sporting green paint, unchopped and it's original ground effects. It's interior is one of abundance. Hand carved cedar wood dash, captain chairs, brass lamps and a tilt column out of an Oldsmobile. "The Glory Days", we all wish we were there. No doubt it was a time when over the top was good! Proportions were extreme, viking murals were it, and Vanning..... was heavenly.
