This was my first car (van). I inherited it from my father when he passed away (waaay too young).

I went through a phase where I put mags on it and a bunch of other crap, but then I got to feeling guilty about turning his van into a rolling joke, so I returned it to stock.

It was an interesting design, but the reality was it was a piece of junk.

4-speed? I had a similar van with a 3-speed.

I liked mine. It was slow, bad brakes and handled poorly, but fun to drive anyhow!



Of course mine was a rollong joke, but at 24, I thought it was cool. I bought it for $200 from a fellow AF guy going overseas!
