    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    ever walk into a forum and feel like you missed an awesome "you had to be there moment?" yeah me too.

    I picked up a new van today- 2000 safari high top conversion (explorer did the conversion). $600 because the motor has no compression in 2 cylinders. gonna drop in the motor from the '97 because it fits and its cheaper than buying a new working van. the 2000 has just over 160k on it (and doesnt look it- guy took good care of it). interior needs a cleaning put all pieces are present and the armrests are intact (big plus on the astro/ safari van). guy said he paid 40k for it back in 2000 and that he used it as a daily driver plus road trips to southern MO.
    without further ado I give you safari 2.0

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    ^Very cool! We just tracked down a vacuum leak in one of those in my AC class a few weeks ago. I LOVE conversion vans, and even though I'm not a fan of normal Astro/Safaris, I think the conversion models are very well done. Great score, man.

    Maybe because he had kids or people to haul around all the time. Maybe he just likes vans. Its not like you're a weirdo if you daily drive a normal looking van.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    ^@ ben
    I dont think he used it all the time as a daily driver but he did drive it alot (he drove it constantly on trips during the summer- maybe 300 miles round trip). drive down to the lake for the weekend then drive back up trips. he said its the only vehicle he had that wasnt totaled when sitting in front of his house (a lincoln and 2 buicks hes had over the past few years got rear ended/ sideswiped). actually the left side has 0 damage, although he had to replace the drivers mirror 5 times becaus people knocked it off. (power mirrors at that- $$$).

    Good looking van Kevin. I really like the Astro/Safaris when they aren't the plain jane models. My mom had a '96 Astro with the Mark III package. I loved that damn thing.

    It hasn't been done yet, but when I get the time the Buick has to go to the shop. The master cylinder or brake booster is going out. I won't let mom drive it with the pedal as soft as it is, so I'm driving it and leaving her the Explorer.

    the mechanic double striped the lot. the angled stripes (although ratty) are actually newer than the straight stripes (which should have been blacked out). so technically i am parked correctly.

    The small brake pedal is to keep from taking up what little floor board space there is. The smaller pedal is actually a non-issue in them.

    Removed the radiator sight shield and measured for a pair of torque struts - "dogbones". Snooped around the engine, checked this, cleaned that, tightened those. Cleaned out radiator bugs - shop vac and soft bristle brush.
