My third van since 73. I bought Lightning new in 83 and immediately started
customizing. Many features on Lightning were ideas as a result of many
truckins through the years.
Originally built for comfort, camping and truckins, friends pushed me to
show her at truckins and car shows.
Lightning now has 40 trophies. In 2007 Jo and I Did a complete
restoration on Lightning that took 2 years. We kept everything the same
except we had all the effects molded in. When Jo and I restored the
interior, we kept everything the same except for the old TV/VCR Combo was
replaced with a 22 inch plasma and the cassette stereo was replaced with a
We love to travel, camp and go to truckins. Lightning has been through 38
states and Canada.

Jo and I would like to Thank everyone for the nice comments on Lightning.
