I've been wanting something fun for my boys to have at my studio for a long time. Thought about a tree house, but I'm not exactly Mr ToolTime, so that wasn't an option. Thought about a shed…but that's a bit…meh.Mrs Portland Pin-Ups and I were mulling over the options and I mentioned that as a kid, I would have loved to have something like a classic pick-up in my yard to play in… we did some searching and voila! Meet my boys' new clubhouse/spaceship/racing car/ pirate ship…! It's a 1966 Ford SuperVan!! And it is for SURE a lady…a grumpy, hard to please, difficult to get going old lady!Driving this beast home was one of the scariest things I've ever done. Felt like I was on a Top Gear cheap car challenge… The transmission slips like a bitch and it has no brakes. Here's roughly how it went.Into gear…give it some gas…nothing…nothing….nothing….nothing….nothing…..FULL THROTTLE OH MY GOD.!!!!!! braking…braking….braking….Braking…BRaking….BRAking…BRAKing…BRAKING OMG!!!! ahhh……..and repeat.She's now safely in her permanent home waiting for the boys to discover her. We'll fix her up nice with some carpet, lighting, sounds etc. #supervan #ford #clubhouse #playhouse #adventure
