New for me, anyway. I just bought the car featured below. I REALLY love it. Before getting it, I considered things like air conditioning and a radio to be luxuries. Now, I suppose I own a ‘luxury car’. The video was on Kenny Kent’s website, but Sean helped me pull it off, so enjoy a video that would make Ken Burns cringe.

This is also a eulogy for the 1990 Plymouth Voyager, known by Luke and Liv as the “Sweet Van”. It’s coming up on its 20th birthday this year, and has been a loyal vehicle, albeit without a lot of features used commonly for driving, such as power brakes, an aim-able driver-side mirror, a driver-window that rolled down, a functioning oil gauge, AC, heat, a radio, a functioning lock on 2 of its three doors and several others I’m sure I’m forgetting.
I’ll put a picture up next time I’m home and near the van.
Share your memories of the Sweet Van in the comment section. (If you’re having trouble, pretend it’s Bunny or something…)
