You SOOOOOO want to do this to Charlie Fart's minivan

Admit it couch, you would rather do this than that stupid window decal idea.

I can't see the picture. With that said, if you like it, I'm nearly certain it's not cool at all.

Swoosh!

That's an interesting looking vehicle (if it's built on a minivan chassis and replaced the aerostar minivan, what do you call it - I detest the work "crossover" when describing anything other than dribbling a basketball). How does it drive? What sort of mileage do you get?

Its actually based on a Volvo chassis.

I would call it a station wagon before I would refer to it as a mini-van. It doesn't have the tall roof line like a traditional mini-van.

The Flex is honestly a very comfortable drive. You sit low just like in a sedan. I get around 20 around town and 24-26 on the highway. I previously had the Lincoln MKT, which is the Lincoln version of the Flex. The Lincoln was a bit cushier, but I would take the Flex due to the styling.

It still reminds me of the old International trucks from the 60's-70's.
You would think the funeral home industry would be all over that design for transporting stiffs.

I miss the Aerostar in the OP. My grandfather had one of the first, it was two-tone blue. What a great little van.

hey, hey, hey! After my dad's rigorous training at How To Act In A Car (TM), we did had no impact at all on that van. More like he also used it to move flooring around town when it wasn't full of relatives and it got a little tired after several years.

By flooring, do you mean the diaamonds that he stole from old man Carruthers?
