It does have potential, But at the same time this is really a good time for me to just retire it. It's still going to be used without fuel being logged, but it has a fuel leak somewhere which needs worked on and retiring it from this site (At least for the time being) gives me more time to focus on the Chevy and Mercury. It's also more of my Dad's van than a car of my own and I do most of the driving in the Chevy Sedan and Mercury, so there's that.

I may take the van out of retirement later, I'm not sure yet. It does have a heater in it already so that will be fun to see the effects of, if I have opportunity to see it in winter-time. We just have to mind heating the windshield; We cracked one in the van already and it looked like it was from heating it with snow on it, from a cold-start with the heater on full-blast.
