haro, there comes a time when a Toyota fanboy comes in handy:



Scion tC, 5x100.
Toyota Celica, 5x100.


I'm pretty sure there has got to be some sort of 17" winter steel wheel application out there - if not 16", for sure. Do it.

I by the looks of that van, I shudder to think how many illegitimate children have been conceived in the back seat, and how many more will come in the future


But in all seriousness, you'll be able to have a TON of fun with that thing. Good find, man! I wish I was still in Iowa so I could head north and help you style it!

Well andrew I must say good choice, as I was a Caravan driver throuout my high school career.

I had a 94 Caravan, I took out the middle seat, and there you have the closest thing to a limo anyone that had rode in it had ever seen We used to have a circle of 8-10 peolpe, just like that 70s show, if you know what I mean Also on date nite, that back bench helped out, but especially on campouts, I never had to bring a tent, I always slept in the back of the van. I also had 3 15s in the back of it, it even turned heads on the strip at Daytona during spring break because of the bass, right before people pointed and laughed, "Hey look at that van." IF THEY ONLY KNEW!

if ya all are wondering why im getting it... its cuz i want a vehicle that i can drive to work everyday and not have to worry about having the bonnie running all the time...

i plan on ripping out the interior pretty soon, and installing the PEM'* if they ever come, and also getting my INTENSE chip re-modified.. cant do any of this with a work car...

i only planned on having it for about a month, but with it actually dropping my insurance, and being able to have lots of fun, plus having a second vehicle, i dont see any reason not get it, even if i do have to pay the full $300

Hey if ya need any tech info on this I've built several turbo Dodges and I know the ins and outs of them. I also have the speed book for the 2.2/2.5 that I no longer need. I know of a guy that built a turbo Caravan for the Grassroots Motorsports 2000 competition...i.e. you built your race vehicle for only 2000. He built the turbo van, and ended up running 13'* with it! With mostly junkyard parts too!!

You will have fun with that van, and you have plenty of Chrysler vehicles to swap from (damn near all FWD'* they made as all but the Omni/Horizon/Charger were on the K platform), and it would be very easy job to swap in the 2.2/2.5 Turbo (but stay away from the 86 and earlier turbos as those are draw-through types)

Happy Modding!

Honestly Andrew...leave the outside alone. It may not look great...but you'll attract more attention if you spray it.

Stock minivan...they'll never catch on it'* you.... sprayed...tinted... They'll give you a Haro in record time...

look into the "50 dollar paint job" basicly rustoleum + wetsanding = pretty damn nice finish for very cheap. IMO, it would be better than rattle cans.
