If I were to get a van now, I would opt for the Chevrolet Astro AWD and make it clean and go camping, boating and off roading alot.
AWD'* are a nightmare to fix and cost more to convert to a V8 (it all in the link i gave you)
Yeah I explored that link earlier this morning, and I decided to start a thread about that. I didn't know that AWD were nightmares to fix but their benefits are pretty awesome plus I can get to go off roading a bit. If I was actually to get a Astro, I'll most likely leave it stock but add the necessary mods (CAI, exhaust, etc) and new rims then drive the hell out of it like a sports car.

I like the color we've got

We were going to get it in 'cadet blue metallic' but they thought it was ugly when they saw it in person so we got teal metallic with pewter trim

I think a L67 equipped Venture (the 99+ cuz I like their styling) in LWB (long wheelbase) would be awesome. What would be even more awesome if the Versatrak AWD system could be hooked up to the L67, can you say a freaking awesome launch
