Goin' to meet its maker
Back in to early 90s, I bought a 1986 Chev Astro van (the big V6, 5-spd manual tranny, air-con, 4ch CD/MP3 stereo, and a CB radio!) from my neighbour Harald. He had converted it for camping and never drove it in the winter. I was also able to avoid using it in the winter and had many years of fun with the old beast.
Today, I sold it back to Harald, who will take it on as a restoration project (the original paint has finally just worn off in places). I'm glad to see the two re-united and hope that he's able to get another 24 years out of it before things start to go wrong.
Thanks to Anna for the picture.
