"The Loser Cruiser"




per Tammi's request, here's the new minivan. We test drove everything in the tri-state area and hubby took notes on my responses...turns out I hated the Ford Windstar, but had a good tolerance for anything red. This was actually the first van we drove, and since we walked away from the dealership, the price kept dropping dramatically to make it everything I wanted in a minivan: RED, BIG, and CHEAP! It was the perfect vehicle for our trip to Texas, and our family and my parents were able to ride together comfortably, saving tons of gas money. Hubby made it all happen when I had completely lost interest in the hunt. He's the man!

I seriously think that is our old mini-van! Not even remotely kidding. Ask Hannah, she'll recognize it too!

You. Have. Arrived.

Or not.

depending on how you look at it. :)

Comeon! I think it's great (for a minivan) - at least yours in red!

It has wheels, Its pretty, Practical, not rusty. It runs...I'd say count your blessings girl...better than not having your own set of wheels. I've always wanted one with doors on both sides. That is really sweet.

Oh wow is a good thing (wink) I didn't think red would be good on a van, but this is nice! :D

I AM very thankful. It fit our budget perfectly, and I love the two doors...we had the one door thing (with the wood grain siding!) when I was a kid and oh how claustrophobic it made me! Yup, I have arrived, though it still freaks me out a bit on the steep hills in Fayetteville.
Helena, were you picturing the old Ithaca Baptist van ???? hee hee heee.
