That is truly a one of a kind SMB. The top is an adventure wagon top. I hear the story about the install from a friend who works for Jimmy. Lets just say this van is the only one that will ever be built like that.

This van also has a custom veggie oil set up that swiches the van over to veggie oil after the engine has been running. When you shut off the ignition there is a controller that switches back to diesel and runs the engine for a little while to get diesel going then shuts the engine off. Since Jimmy owns several resturants he has an unlimited supply of veggie oil.

Well in that case, I glad I was able to help fuel JB's SMB the other week, when I ate dinner at Cheeseburger in Paradise in Fredericksburg, VA.

I can see the pics just fine on my home computer.

Jimmy Buffet"s NEW new van

We were at SMB West on Monday picking up our new ride and saw J.B.'s new WEST COAST van. White with tall top; looked kinda like Blackeye's.
