As much as I love my van, it isn’t the perfect automobile… and if such a thing exists, let me know. Perfect in my mind meaning, you never need to maintain it. My van is in the shop today, so if you think about it, pray for me to have some wisdom to know what to do with it… if it’s gonna be a lot of money to fix it, I might just scrap it… but then what can i get to replace it…. and blargh. It isn’t quite black plumes of smoke bad, but it could be a lot of money. We’ll see. In any case, it’s always an adventure driving that thing, and by adventure, i mean unsafe… so i’m glad to be getting it looked at. It’s long overdue. The joys of owning an early nineties dodge caravan!
