Another Day - Another Van

This van is 15 inches longer than ours.

When Lulu's brother Jack saw our new old Dodge van - he told me to find him one. A really nice one came up on craigslist - a little more expensive and a little more luxurious than ours. The seller wanted $3700 for his 1995 Dodge Conversion Van with 111,000 miles on it. 

We did a carfax to make sure it was a Florida car - indeed - all 4 owners lived in Florida. the report also showed that it was not wrecked and that it had regular service done on it. After bringing it to our house - I took it for a drive - and the owner and I agreed on $2600. I wrote him a check - he took off his license plate - and his daughter drove him home in her BMW. 

Jack and Tami have booked plane tickets to come visit for the Duke game - then drive the van home to Virginia.

The van is remarkable - no dents - no rust. Sure the paint has nicks and scratches - so would you have 17 years and 111,000 miles.

It has the following equipment - 360 V8 engine - automatic transmission - power steering - power disk brakes - power windows - power locks - power mirrors - tilt steering wheel - cruise control - nice tires - chrome wheels - engine AC - roof 110 volt AC and heat - dual radios - individual AC outlets and lights - leather captain's chairs - leather electric bed - tinted windows - shades on all windows.
