hehe, that engine does indeed look impressive, next to the 2.3L Slant-4 in my car...
My car is a 1986 Volvo 240. She's fairly young for a 240, has only 275,000 KM's on her. Durable, reliable, and problem free. The only real issue she has is some bad rust on the sill (it used to be on both sills, but I cut off and replaced one. Will have to get around to doing the other side sometime).
It's pretty slow off the line, but cruises nicely. 114HP pulling 3500+ lb's tends to have that effect :D
What do you own?
I've got 2 AMC Eagles, a rare 81 Kammback with 300,000+ Miles, I'm restoring her
1983 AMC Eagle Wagon, was my daily driver until the rear main seal wenk, so now I'm trying to find a suitable 4.0HO for her
and my daily driver until I get my 83 Fixed is a 95 F150 XLT 302, 7MPG, and she's not even fast
Me and my dad are "working" on a 1984 Honda V65 Sabre, I hope we actually get to that someday
Didn't we already have this thread?
Merl, how does it do being hit by a city bus? as in fortified cage, side air bags, that kind of stuff?
It is a good looking van, grant you that one.
I love my 2006 Toyota Sienna van. From the day I got it, it was obvious that they used their vast delivery truck making experience in the construction and design. You can tell it's a truck chassis with a van shell on top V6, tons o' power, 25.5 mpg (which I can't believe, that's better than I get with the 1997 Mazda Protege with 2 liter motor).
nice looking truck. you should have posted them pictures on the dodge forum after you completed the body swap. those rims look way better in black than the grey they use to be.
