When we were kids in 1979, my father bought this wonderful van, camperized in USA
by the late TEC factory, located in Elkhart, Indiana
It was based on a Ford Econoline 150 Chateau - 1975 model, boasting a 351 Windsor engine).
Needless to say that in Europa, there were not so many US vans on the roads,
so it was a little sensation when we were driving it.
One of it's main feature was it's pop-top, which when lowered, was really aerodynamical.
Imagine an almost 3 tons beast, cruising on the highways at 160 km/h,
easily passing all the regulars european vans in the roar of it's V8: an amazing memory for the kid I was.
He kept it some years and we have visited some parts of France, Spain and Portugal with it
Sometimes I missed it... I know he sold it to a garage in my town, quite 20 years ago,
but I really don't know what happen to it
Then I get older, but I always liked camping bus for travelling.
My first own one was a VW, the second one a Mercedes. Both Westfalias...
