this soccer mom and her vans, need 3 rows for 3 kids!

Soccer moms, moms, and single moms, all need family vans, and I’m on my fourth van since having children. I had a couple cool cars once, really, seriously, I did. I’ve had collectible cars too, a Duster and 1960’s Impala. So on the day I picked up my first van, I almost cried.

these Aerostars were like tanks, but were sadly replaced by the Windstar that isn’t nearly as tough as these

The Aerostar. A year earlier, as a working single mom to one little girl, I had looked at this cool yellow Mustang, and now I am driving this! I hate to admit it, but this Aerostar had to be the best vehicle I ever owned! It’s really a tank. We bought it 4 years old, and I drove it until it simply would not drive anymore, 11 years!. The last 2 years with the engine light on. Lasted longer than my marriage.

Another Caravan! (van #4). This one was a little newer and hence has been a better van. Although I’ve spent about $1,000 on it so far. This van has served as a tent, moving van, and soccer van. I’ve moved kids, their bikes and yes, a queen size mattress will fit in the back (there is my van, left image, I put this on facebook, lol).

Of course, one problem with owning a vehicle is the upkeep, and even if you are poor, and your ex is a mechanic, don’t assume help, here.

If you are looking for a decent used vehicle, here’s a page with good possible used vehicle choices.

Soon I won’t need a family van, but I think I’ll keep driving something like it. Also, I am going to get another collectible car one day, I’ve decided on this:

supernatural car, 1967 impala, the new soccer mom car

that’s right! it’s the Supernatural Car, a 1967 Impala, and I want one!
