Default When MNBC Bvlls are down.... THIS IS HOW WE ROLL!!!!

Met up with Andrew today since I was right on his path from work to home. I had to make a stop for some parts for my dads new work car (SI L67 powa!!!) and I figured since I was in the area I'd give Harro a call. Turns out he was going to be driving right by the place where I was so he stopped and I snapped this quick pic with my Fusic.

So, when the Bonneville'* aren't roadable we MNBC members tend to drive vans, sometimes as big as we can get them. Mine (1988 Dodge Ram B250) has bench seats that can be flattened and slid together for a bed, and the front one can be flipped so a table can be put between the seats.
This thing also has Travis beat on mileage, but Travis will probably beat it to 300k. The van has 294,xxx miles on the original 318 FI motor and 727 HD trans (rear end was replaced at 210,xxx miles).
Even with all these miles the van still gets up and goes. It'* hard to maintain 70 MPH.... cruise doesn't work and a few times I caught myself closer to 90 MPH and the thing was hardly breathing.

i had a old dodge diplomat with 200k on it and the PO hadn't changed the oil since 165k, it came out chunky style put new oil in it every 3k miles from then and it ran like a champ- in fact i still see it driving around time to time.
