Just as the title says. Its great that new members are signing up everyday. And it would be nice to put a van to that member name. So please, if you can, post some pics. And if you have any questions about uploading pics or such, please, ask away.

Harumph. If you keep naggin', I'll marry you too. Pictures of the van coming later today. In the meantime, here are some other pictures of mine you can look at:

If I had to describe my Astro in two words, it would be: Camera accessory.

One of the mods I'm planning involves putting a tripod mount on my front bumper and building a Canon EOS remote release into my dash for rolling highway shots. Seriously. Another will be a sunroof I can open and pop out of with my camera to take photos from a higher vantage point.

I made this post a sticky in the New Members Lounge because I strongly agree that a photo should be provided when you join up. It helps us put a name to a face van. :P

Postby paulo57509 » October 26th 2009, 11:26pm

Greetings Everyone,

New guy here from California (please don't hold that against me).

I kind of inherited my father's 2003 Safari after he passed last July. He was an independent mechanic for +40 years before he sold his business and went to teach at the local Vocational school.

The van has ~115k. No real issues. The van died on dad the very last time he drove it. He didn't get a chance to troubleshoot it before he got sick. I found the distributor rotor had burned through causing a no-spark condition. It was kind of a sad time for me because it just didn't feel right working on the van with him in the house in bed.

I doubt that I'll ever sell the van. Lots of sentimental value, especially for my Mom. She doesn't drive and they both went everywhere together in it.

He told me not to be a mechanic, so I became a mechanical engineer. I think I would have been happier being a mechanic. ;)

No pics yet. I do have one of the SPID though.

Welcome Paulo,
I'm very sorry to hear about your dad. Keeping, maintaining & using Dads astro is a great tribute to a 40+ year mechanic and something I'm sure he would want and be proud of.

Good luck with it and lets see some pics,

Or you can just create a gallery on here. There is a link towards the top of the page that says "gallery" right next to a picture of a camera. Click that link and you can create your own gallery where you can upload your pictures too.
