Talking Howlin

Hey guys. been here about a week. Had some difficulties with another vehicle. Im 23, married, father of 2. I love to work on cars, just not when it keeps me from driving it.

I have a 78 chevy pickup, runs on propane, that i grew up in, a 99 lumina with 250,000 miles i got as a wedding present from my dad, and a 2003 chevy cavalier that I got with 155xxx miles for 1200 bucks. (i have a weird thing about cavaliers and berettas. Dont ask)

Ive had some non gm cars, but there has always been at least one in my life. (i do miss that damn ford minivan)

Welcome to the site. Always great to have another wrencher. As for minivans, I can't stand any of them. You can't work on anything because the engine is under the windshield. Picked up a 05 Pontiac Montana a few years back and that'* much better, more like a truck.

this one had just been serviced. got it for 150 bucks. the minivan anyway. everything worked, and most of the time i had the seats out of it, and the back carpet and hauled crap around. my air compressor stood up nicely inside, and i would ratchet strap it to the seat tiedowns
