The747man. I hope you are like a parent driving around in something like a van for god sakes! I dont know what your hook up is with a stupid van but its strange!
No I'm nothing near a parent yet. You know, I get this kind of crap from several people and it pisses me off. All I want is a reliable vehicle, that gives me plenty of space, and flexibility.
happens to be it:
The Chevy Astro is simply not
a minivan like parents drive around. It hauls more, tows more than any existing minivan today. It is much more truck-like, and it has a ton of space inside. It has one of the most reliable and powerful V6s, the Vortec 4.3.
It is great for the long drives that I frequently make. Just because I don't want/need a badass sports car like a Z28, doesn't mean I am weird or have a bad taste in cars.
I am a fan of sports cars as much as the other person. But in reality, you can't take advantage of a sports car in a big city like Austin.
So, my van provides me with space, reliability, and power like I need. No sports car can do that. Of course, if I wans't interested in space or capacity, and I didn't need it, than I would probably have a Camaro or something like that.
I actually haul and tow things with my van. Try towing a 6000 lb boat to the lake for the weekend with a sports car.
So the fact is, some people use their vehicles nothing more than to go to and from places. Others use theirs for all kinds of things, like me. A sports car can give you a fast ride, but that's about it. My van gives me space, capacity, and power.
What is wrong with that?
NOTHING, so shut your mouth and mind your damn business.
