I dont mind putting it in the 2nd car side of garage for a couple weeks. We dont park our Suburban in garage cause it only fits by a couple inches. That gives you a few options to figure what works best. since I work at airport and Don works beside it there will be a ride for you if you fly in. I work nights so am home all day if you drive in also.
Hope things go smoothly with your son.......Rory

I just talked to our facilities guy at work, and it turns out that company policy will not let us "store" (or park) a vehicle on company property for more than a day or two. Therefore, Rory's (jetlagmech) garage is probably going to be your best bet. The only possible issue will be risking a ticket while driving it the 8 or 9 miles between the vans current location to his house with no plates. If we had a copy of the bill of sale, we might be able to talk our way out of a ticket (assuming it gets pulled over). If some sort of temporary or in-transit tags can be procured, this will not be an issue.

The good news is that the Las Vegas police are actually not that worried about a lot of things (most LV motorists are idiots) and they are usually just looking for drunk drivers (also known as tourists). It is quite likely that the car will not get pulled over for lack of a license plate. It's just a chance we might have to take.

Have Fun!

Don

,,,and I work days, in case you arrive in the evening. I live only a few blocks from jetlagmech, and only 7 or 8 miles to the airport.

Have Fun!

I don't know if it really helps, but I have that 2x2 adapter for the diagnostics. I think I would be most concerned about the timing belt as at 48k that could be the original.

Thanks for the offer. Oilhammer didn't seem too interested in the scan (not much info to be learned in this old van), but we'll see if he wants to use it.

Have Fun!

I sent them a down payment to hold it. I too am concerned about the belt being original. I have the 2x2 adapter, so not really worried about that. My only concern right now is getting it safely back to STL. And now my boy is going to be in the hospital all this week (surgery tomorrow) so this is all a trainwreck for time for me right now.

I could drive down and tow it back I guess, boy that would be a LOT of fuel!

If you need ride from airport or want garage to look car over or even a bed to take a nap in before you start drive its no problem. I'm only not free between 1:30-3:30 pm. daughter doc appt.

Let me know what tools you would like to see on hand I'll make sure its ready. some of my tools I keep at work unless I need it at home. One thing I dont have but can borrow is a set of ramps. had to sell a lot of my home big tooling when I moved last year. good luck with your trip.....Rory
