Upon aiding a friend - I have decided to post the example used here.
The following is a snippet that shows basic class inheritance.

The source file as well as a test case can be found attached.

You can test these classes with the following code:

    Dim cNew As New Car
    Dim vNew As New Van
    Dim tNew As New Truck

    With cNew
        .Make = "Chevrolet"
        .Model = "Camaro"
        .Engine = 6.0
        .Year = 2013
        .Style = Car.StyleOption.Coupe
        MsgBox(.ToString)
    End With

    With vNew
        .Make = "Chevrolet"
        .Model = "Express"
        .Engine = 6.0
        .Passengers = 4
        .Year = 2013
        .Cargo_Rack = True
        .Folding_Seats = False
        MsgBox(.ToString)
    End With

    With tNew
        .Make = "Chevrolet"
        .Model = "Silverado"
        .Engine = 6.0
        .Year = 2013
        .Cab = Truck.CabSize.Crew_Cab
        .Torque = 413
        MsgBox(.ToString)
    End With
