The Gidge

#1 Post by Ksosprouo » 8 years ago

Hello all,
I am a proud owner of a 1969 360 van named Gidget and have been stalking these forums for the last few months to get her back on the road. I figured it was time to introduce myself (and Gidge) to everybody. I picked her up in either 2007 or 2008, I can't remember and she's in pretty good shape with some minor wrinkles on the front and virtually no rust. The van and I shared some amazing commutes from Portland, OR to Everett, WA, about 200 miles each way in the first few months. Unfortunately the van has been sitting for the past 2 years and needed a brake job. Thanks to Ed and his generosity I have now rebuilt the brakes and the fan runs like a champ.

Welcome to the club, even though it seems like you've been around for a while. The NW has a lot of 360's as you have probably already found out and it looks like we have another nice example in Gidget. If you are every up Sumner way (just east of Tacoma) stop in and visit Gidget's cousin, a yet unnamed sedan.
