Construct a custom classic.

The 1977 Chevy Van continued the traditional look of earlier third-generation models produced during the 1970s. Multiple engine options were offered by Chevy, including gas-powered V6s and diesel-powered V8s. Tough, truck-style hubs and brakes were complemented by a dual A-Arm independent front suspension. On the outside, the van consisted of a unibody-style frame with a short nose and hood. Kit features high-backed captain’s seats, a replica CB radio, a replica cassette player, an outside-mounted spare tire housing, soft black tires, assorted chrome-plated parts and decals with custom graphics.

England’s dynamic double-decker.

Mention London, and most people will think of the Queen, Big Ben and double-decker buses. The most iconic double-decker bus of them all is the AEC Routemaster. Introduced in 1956, this British staple was developed in conjunction with London Transport, the bus’ primary customer. Nearly 3,000 Routemasters were built before their official 2005 retirement, but a select few Routemasters remain in use on two London heritage routes. An updated version is anticipated to hit the streets in 2012.
