    My very first AWD

    I couldn't say no. Really good deal. It's hilarious.



    And hilariously slow.

    Well the Iroc was actually my moms purchase as its a donor car for her '69 Firebird.

    This terrible decision though, was completely my own

    No way! The Gods of Oldschool let this fall in my lap and one thing I've learned over the years is that I need to just let it happen. There's some kind of awesome plan for it I'm sure.

    Skiing trips, camping, and roadtrips are going to be rad!!!

    Just because you have room for 10 cars doesn't mean you have to own 10 cars.

    Doesn't seem bad at all actually. You need to drive one to understand the mid-engined van awesome.

    Not supercharged but I don't think I would have bothered if it was. I hear they suffer many more problems due to the stresses of boost. I'm happy with a simple van that will be good on gas and get me to my vacation spot and back without any trouble
