New guy saying Hi

Postby majikman [OP] » June 17th 2018, 12:35am

Hello all......looking forward to meeting new people on here and talking about the pro's and con's of the Chevy Astro.This is my first Astro van and I will be picking the brains of those who know these vans better than I. And of course as time goes on I may be able to help those who are in the same shoes as myself right now.My van is a 2004 Cargo AWD and I am very excited to start modifications and to do a custom build.

POCS POCS POCS!

There are no cons to these vans!!! Except they aren't big enough sometimes, they aren't small enough sometimes and they ALWAYS doesn't get good enough gas mileage!

Actually, the ONLY con (I know of) of the Astro is that it didn't come with a "factory" V8.
But the pro is that that is easily corrected. :D
