I just bought a 1995 Astro cargo van as a replacement for a F-150 pick up. I was looking for something that would still store my "stuff", get a little better mileage, and allow me to park closer to the building when my job moves me to the GM Tech Center in Warren. This little Van should fit the bill nicely. The Van runs out real nice right now, has 141,000 on the Odo & I was skeptical until researching and found this site. After reading thru some of the posts and seeing what kind of support I could look forward too, I pulled the trigger and bought it. I pick it up tomorrow.

I hope I never need any help from here, but it looks like there's a wealth of knowledge here if I do.
Here's some pics:

not really a cargo van but it looks nice anyways. it will definately haul your stuff and keep it safe.
well i was just going by the huge glass back window and the fact that it has a full interior. cargo vans are made as cheap as possible they wouldnt have carpet or those door pannels and seats. the cargo i had was all metal besides a black mat in the back and the seats were cheap vynal and the doghouse didnt have carpet. but like i said its a nice looking van none the less.
lol maybe someone pieced it together? whatever it is you have a unique van there. so you should learn to love it. just ask us anything you dont know and you will get alot of great help.
yeah thats what it looks like to me.. just like mine did when i ripped all the interior out. i guess the PO wanted to use it as a cargo van and gutted everything from the seats back. whatever you do keep that mat they are hard to find and are usually pricey when you do find them. what did you plan on using the van for?
well you could insulate it like another member did with actual house insulation.. or do some kind of dynomat like i did. i hope you enjoy your van and the many miles it will give you
