This will probably be one of the more talked about subjects on A/S. I imagine that it will never happen until GM thinks that it would be an economically feasible venture. With GM, you can never tell what they will do next or completely understand why. :shrug:

They've been known to pull the plug on perfectly good cars that are in high demand and no amount of letter writing or petitioning has ever changed it.

88stro,

No PCV Valve, No EGR Valve, 4 Wheel Disc Brakes, 16 Inch Tire/Wheel.

More than that I do not know. Oh, and the backward compatibility will keep me in this van for awhile. I also like the forward thinking Mod of a 350 engine.
