  • Here is an ad for a passenger van for sale. https://amarillo.craigslist.org/cto/d/2005-ford-e350-xl-extended-15/6653237007.html

    Anyone with, or from a big family will probably relate. I know I can haha. 
    If you have not experienced van driving with kids you are missing out.  :laugh1:

    Cheers to the family, they sound like they are a fun bunch :cheers:

    That would be a Trad Assault Vehicle.

    This is small compared to what I rode around in when I was a child.

    My husband's on the lookout for a stretch limo.  So we can roll up the dividing window when it gets bad back there.... 8)

  • We just have a dodge caravan 7 seater right now, and with only 3 kids so far, so in a couple years when we outgrow that we're planning on just going straight for the 15 seater and filling it up!

  • Did anyone on here grow up with a Country Squire station wagon?  Ours was yellow with fake wood panels, had seats for 10 + driver.  It had the third fold-out seat in back and my Dad made and installed two small seats on the floor.  He put in extra seat belts, so the front had room for three, middle, four, rear fold-out, two, plus two facing sides.  We piled luggage in a homemade roof pod that clamped onto the roof rack.  Obviously, this was the days before car seat laws.  Seat belts weren't even required, but Dad made us wear them because he'd been in the Navy medical corps and seen what happened to sailors who got tossed out of vehicles.

    Something to keep in mind about buying a car/van -- air conditioning, door locks:

    The automatic windows work! This is good because the air conditioner does not.

    The van came equipped with automatic door locks. Unfortunately, they no longer work.
    .
    Without auto locks, to park a vehicle like this you get to take a nice walk all around to open, lock and close each of the many doors.

    If anyone says that true and natural water is not necessary for baptism and thus twists into some metaphor the words of our Lord Jesus Christ" Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Spirit" (Jn 3:5) let him be anathema.
