I always think it'* hilarious when I see an old old old old old caravan or voyager plastered with APC and various other rice stickers...

It'* like, "you think slapping some stickers on your car is going to make it faster, or at least, less atrocious? I think not.

My wife'* Astro is pretty quick. But I'll never get a chance to find out how much quicker it could be. I've been told (ordered, threatened with death) that the only time I'll take a tool to it is when she says so... :(

I was going to get her on of those kinda ricey dash panels they sell on ebay, the kinda "indiglo" looking ones. Her eyes aren't the greatest, so I figured it'* help at night. I showed her my idea and got read the riot act!!

But, little does she know, I do have a couple of non-bragworthy kills in it.

My company has 3 Windstars (98 and 2 99s)... with the seats all taken out of them and empty they are pretty peppy, for their size. They get kinda squirrelly on the highway at around 160kph... but upto 130-140 they aren't "too" bad.

my dad used to have a 94 caravan, maybe 95, the older boxier style. had the 3.3 v6 and it was pretty peppy for a van, the new ones have to have some power, they have to tow small boats, campers etc. my gf'* dad has a newer, like 96. it doesn't have ANY options, not even tinted rear windows. its sloooooooow even for a minivan, slower than there 2.2 sunfire convertable

We had a 91 transport, before they got the 3800....

If i were to get a minivan it'd be the transport, or the astro AWD with vortec, or the new mazda ones (supposedly very sporty driving)
