Isn't She Grand? Like 200Grand!

You all know I have a crazy kind of love for my van. Baby is my dream rig. I know, it's weird. Who would love a Ford Aerostar this way, but I do. I can't help it. I had a little Ford Festiva before her and when we found out we were having another baby, I REALLY wanted a van. I REALLY wanted the extended Dodge Caravan. We test drove them, loved them and wanted one. One day Travis was looking at the classifieds in the Oregonian and saw that Coliseum Ford in Portland had Aerostars on sale. I told him I'd go drive one, but I wanted a Caravan. Well, we came home that day with a brand new Aerostar. She has been from Port Angeles, WA to San Diego, CA, Astoria, OR to Sturgeon Bay, WI and will be heading out to VA in a month. We have taken several family trips in our little van. 200,000 miles of trips! I hope to post one day that she just went over 300,000. Hey, I could happen! :)

You and this van have an obsession with each other. I am not sure it is healthy....

Congratulations! Honestly, I think it's wonderful that you love your van that much. Not sure that's what I'd call a fantasy car, but you two have found each other and are some sort of soul mates...we should all be so lucky!

We had an Aerostar Van forever...loved it, loved it and was very sad when it had to go. So many wonderful family memories and having two kids, they each had their own space!!!! Yours is a beauty!!!!!!!
