    Do you drive a mini van?

    I know one guy who does. He's a wanker.

    FWIW, I don't drive one since I have only one kid. A Crossover works for my case.

    Currently? No. Previously? Yes, Chevy Lumina APV, Plymouth Voyager Sport, Plymouth Grand Voyager, Pontiac Transport Montana, Chrysler Town & Country LXi. All but the very first one came from the same used car lot. Had 5 kids between the two of us.

    But we have a Jeep Liberty now, as we're down to just two kids in the house.

    Sort of. I drive a Ford Freestyle. Basically a station wagon, but Ford tries to call it a "crossover".

    I would only drive one if it had an air mattress in the back and a disco ball hanging from the ceiling.

    Yes, a 2005 Honda Odyssey. It's an awesome family truckster. We also have a wagon, a 2006 Audi A4 Avant. Not as much cargo room as the Odyssey but a great road car and with AWD, it's also our ski vehicle.

    Have a newer Dodge Caravan and LOVE it. Wish we could have two.

    We only have two kids, so we don't need to it haul all their stuff, but it is nice when we need to "camp out" in it. The kids love to be in the back, so we have the middle seats down and we can all hang out and eat snacks when waiting for stuff (long story), and such. Plus, the kids can't kick the back of my seat when I am driving, and I am 6'3", so I like the upright seated position. And it's newer with the side windows that go down, so it's not like riding in a coffin. Plus, we got the big motor, so it's fast and I win drag races all the time.

    And the mood lights...I love the green mood lights inside. I never have them off.

    I'm seeing a trend here. If I buy a mini van will I automatically have kids then? I've always wanted a Couch Jr or little Couchita...minus my DNA though.

    I'm kinda Bat **** Crazy.

    I had a 90's white Dodge Caravan. We called it the "fridge". It was not too big and easy to see out of. It was great until it hit 85,000 miles.

    My wife has a 2004 Odyssey. It's wonderful for vacations and paid for, but otherwise I hate it. I call it the "Panzerkampfwagen". It's too big and my lower back hurts while driving.
