Comfortable Cruiser — The best comment I get from friends when they jump in, is that it is nice and roomy inside, and the way it drives is really comfortable. It starts every time without bother and handles well in the snow. Lot of room inside!

Pros

big V8 power and pickup

Cons

uncomfortable driving position, cruddy metal used to make this van

The Big Guy — Okay, for a van, this thing is a good looking van. When its empty in the back, the big guy takes off with the help from that big V8. I don't know the exact 0-60 but who needs to go 0-60 in this van in a race? After 100k miles though, mine kept breaking, but I think it's because i beat the crud out of it. solid van for work. this things got a lot of heart.
