Community Spotlight: Ashley & Austins’ 1982 Chinook

At just about every Overland Expo, a couple of vehicles really stand out. It may be a great build from a company, a tried and true model that’s put together just right, or it might be something totally unique that stops you dead in your tracks. The latter is most definitely the case with Ashley and Austins’ 1982 Chinook.
