Howdy from the frozen tundra that is Maine. I don't have a van yet, I've been searching around at slot of options and really fell in love with the astro/safari vans. I drive an 1987 Fiero GT right now but would like something to take to the bars, road trips, and occasional towing. The GM vans look like a great choice and do it in style!

Now to find one

Welcome! The Astro / Safari Vans are a great choice! Often called the MUV or "multi - use - vehicle" ....... :rockon:
What year or price range are looking at? AWD or 2wd? Cargo or Passenger or Conversion Van? :mrgreen:

As it is right now I'm attempting to sell my 2005 Ford Focus that has a blown motor, that will directly effect how much I can spend. I still have many questions before I know exactly what I'm looking for. I prefer rwd if I can find it but I think up here in Maine It will be hard to find one that's not awd.

I originally started the search for a conversion van but now that I know you can fit a sbc 350 in one of these I'm leaning toward a stripped down cargo van.

Make sure you research V8 swaps a lot......you will find what years are easier to swap the 350 into('94 and below). I would really like the look of a lifted AWD Cargo Van, but I have kids... :lol:
