Hot Rod magazine declares vans are cool again. Can you dig it?

crack courier, chi-mo wagon... I make certain cords and air hose are visible when my racks are off for highway runs.
Just tuned up my 300 by tightening 3 loose sparkplugs. That MSD throws a mighty spark; it wasn't missing except at cold start.

Vans are way cool.

I miss my 1993 E-150 conversion van with bed, 4 captains chairs - "the luxmobile". I owned it for 17 years and it had ZERO issues with it. 302 V8, AOD. So comfy on long trips - Chicago to Gulf Coast non-stop 800+ miles once. And, good on gas too.
1995 F-150 XL, 300-6, 4x4, ex-cab, sb, 3.08 5-speed, 2 1/2 in. exhaust w/flowmaster 50, MSDignition failed with no warning, now out, canopy, 179,000 + miles. Gone but not forgotten 1965 F-100 240 3spd lwb "the green hornet"; 1960 F-250 4x4, 223 six, 4sp with wrap-around rear window, two-tone paint, overhead camper.
Tow vehicle: 2012 F-250 4x4 6.7 diesel XLT s/c lwb
