Hello from Milwaukie Oregon.

Just found this site today, have all ready found some great information. Just bought out third Astro van, a 2001 4.3L V6 RWD. Prior we had a 1988 and a 1999. first thing we did to this one is removed the rear seats and installed a sleeping shelf set up so we have storage underneath. Building a roof basket and installing extra lights. Besides camping we race a desert truck and the van will be our Chase Vehicle, pulling either the parts trailer or the chuck wagon.

Congratulations ! You just won 3000 used oil filters. Tell us what is going thru

your mind right now...besides "Peace for the World."

Welcome to the insanity. Others will be along to stick their noses into the conversation. They must, they must !

^^^ Underneath the truck soaking up the spilt fuel from the last fuel filter change ???

Or at least that was where it ended up the last time Josephine helped you in the

driveway...preparing to invade Moscow. (Hint: don't even think about it, winter is

coming !)
