One Question Interviews: Royal Thunder

Josh Weaver (Royal Thunder)

SPB: Do you have a favorite type of van or bus?

Weaver: Dodge Ram vans are definitely our favorite vans. I bought a ‘95 full luxury Dodge Ram van from my friend Johnny Collins for $200 around 2007-2008. It had 200k original miles on it and Johhny's band, Thunderlip, had used it for years. Johnny bought it from one of the Squirrel Nut Zipper guys and apparently, the Squirrel Nut Zippers got it in '95 new as a sign-on bonus with their label. We used it and drove every day for at least 3-4 years. It had 350k miles on it when it was retired! The motor still ran great, but the rear end gave out. After the '95 Ram was so good to us we bought a 2002 Dodge Ram cargo van. The guy I bought it from said they used it to transport frozen goods and dead bodies coming into the country from Jamaica! It's already been a great van and got us across the US at least 3-4 times! 

A picture of our '95 Ram. RIP
