Yea go a head and make fun of me, I own a minivan now. Very Happy

Its a 2005 Chrysler Town&Country Touring, 3.8L. It got 24mpg with the A/C on while traveling home. It also has the 6 disk DVD player for the kids with head phones. Auto/remote doors and hatch with the stow&go seating. It has a few scratches here and there but only 1 spot of rust on the rocker panel. I paid $4800 for it from a private party. Looks like it only needs plugs and wires as I pulled them all and they were gapped at .058 from use but had good color. Thats about all I can brag about it because its a minivan that I will not be driving. Laughing

The Ram is parked with storage insurance on it now and I got my Durango back from the wife, so Im stoked about that! Maybe I can start my Ram 408 build again in a few months!!!

Your mention of toys you want + the "feeling older",   brings up something you'll probably hate me for;

To prove I have insecurities, I purchased MANN FILTERS for this minivan from RockAuto. My only logic behind this is, MANN Filters must be Manly and it makes me feel better. LOL

On a side note Im actually glad I bought these filters. Their USA made and weigh twice as much as the WIX filter I have on my shelf.
