    I'm going to get a minivan. I guess I should have originally posted that.

    Skip the van and get a Honda element. They're pretty neat.

    In all seriousness, we owned a Voyager for some time and really enjoyed the ergomonics. The motor, trans, brakes...not so much, but it was a joy to drive when it wasn't in the shop.

    If you get it, let me know...I'll send you a disco ball to hang in the back, and a CD of the Partridge Family and the BeeGees.

    I'm right here. Sitting at in front of the laptop, randomly selecting letters from the keyboard.

    I love you man but, that very well may be the dumbest statement you have ever posted. Apologize. Now.

    We didn't have a disco ball but we did have one of those 70s conversion vans. Do you know what happens in the back when you're intoxicated father decides to go off road? Chaos!

    The Toyota vans look awesome. Chrysler town and country are also great. Lots of room with the stow and go seating and they drive like a luxury car.

    I have to laugh a bit at that one. Hell, you weren't driving at the time if you didn't have a cold beer, or mixed drink in your hand while driving. I recall my dad's van had a bar in it, as well as those cool buoy drink holders on the swivel (like in boats) so you could drive off in the ditch without spilling a drop.

    If I buy a van, it will likely be a Toyota cause they are better than American cars.

    Nah.... I can afford the gas. I'm doing this for the street-cred. That's what is important.

    For a laugh, google "Piaggio Ape 50 Van"

    Rural Italy is awash with the open tray version of these farty little things - if you're brave you can beat them going down twisty mountain roads. They usually put up a good fight though.

    1990's VW Vanagon Synchro, Mitsubishi Van, or any of the old Toyota Vans up to and including the Previa. Go for it.
