I'll have to look up that Kilnhurst show as I'm trying to work out whereabouts in Kilnhurst they'd hold a show. Did go to a show many years ago(with Autobahnstormers) hosted by Steel City Cruisers at a sports and social club between Canklow Road roundabout and Tinsley.

Probably around this area.

I was a member of Steel City Cruisers when I was teenager and there was some fantastic cars in the group even in the late 70's early 80's

One of them was the Invader Van.  I remember looking far more aggresive than these pics show, Also seen the CBS van at one of the meetings.

Just looked the club up, seems they are still running and host the Abual Car Show in Kilnhurst, Rotherham every year.

Nice, but not for me, there is a nice one that parks in a village not too far from me.

There was a yellow stepside Chevy pick up years ago that I liked, it had a straight 6 in it, the guy apparently used to drive to drag race meeting on a basic carb and when he got there swapped the maifold and put tripple 48's on it.

The Rascal was RWD, basically a rebadged Suzuki ;)

I learn something new everyday.  Wonder which van I was thinking of then. :-[ :-\

I posted a reply in the  welcome section regards the CF van.

At work we had a fleet of CF vans for daily deliveries and on occasions I used the works CF pickup or a CF van to go pick parts up.

1st drive in one I locked up all 4 brakes just getting used to the van (Quite impressive but totally unexpected.)   :-X

At the time I had (and passed my test in )a HA Viva van so obviously the CF was the biz with the size/more power and those brakes. ::)

As times went by the vans went FWD and the CF stopped production for things like the Rascal van. :-\

Reading a car mag one day there was an artictle about drag racing vans.  So 1st thought was a Rascal with a V8 in the rear for the rear wheels. but keep the original setup to drive it there as a FWD.

The dream never really went away and I got to know a compamy in Doncaster (BH Autokraft) who built V8 dragsters etc. After a guilded tour it seemed putting a V8 into anything was basically limited by imgination and finance. (plus ability and physical dimentions)

The finance and time have never been there for what I wanted to build, but if I had the money would I build a dragster van, Not sure.

But having seen some of the crate engines available these days and watching the American TV progs (Counts Kustoms and Gas Monkey Garage, Diesel Brothers etc)

I have seen a nice choice of engines and reckon I would stick with GM.

So many creative people and companies out there these days I dont know what I would build if I had the money.

Would be a choice of the van or a Bandit Trams Am at the moment. :y

Hi, Welcome to the forum. :y

I allways liked the CF van.  Had I have ever won the lottery I wanted to put a V8 Twin turbo/Nos 1200/1500 HP race engine in the the back and take it to Santa Pod at weekends

The class is taught in Spanish as the only common language though the tutor has some English. There is an Italian, Turk, Ukrainian, South African and about 7 Moroccans .  The Moroccans are all young and so quick to learn……

Takes me back to the old TV days  :y
