Looks like they ran over a Bedford with a UPS truck. The plastic, oh too much plastic. Boy do I pan for the good old days of Chevy.......Pupout

I always thought that they intended it to be a full size version of the Astro. They just got to get rid of the Spaceship look of the tail lights which they obviously copied off of the Pontiac spaceship-I mean transport. Ironicly, my 90 Astro has a lot more front seat leg room. Go figure...<BR>Bill

Oddly enough, the Astro was supposed to replace the full size Chevy in the 80's, it was on the drawing board before the Chrysler mini's were introduced. GM never referred to it as a "mini" during the concept stages, they called it a "mid-sized" van. The problem with the newer full size vans is that styling cues taken from a smaller van and "blown up" to full size often lose their proportion and look odd. And boy, do these new Chevys look odd!

The late model chevys are the most god-awful ugly vans on the road. I thought ford had won the prize for ruining a decent van design, but Chevy outdid them by miles. The side panels have almost no contours, the taillights look silly and the front end looks just like the astro. Actually, the whole thing looks like an Astro on steroids. Ugly ugly ugly. The dodge vans are the only halfway decent looking vans on the road becasue they still use the same basic 1970's body shell. I have heard that they don't sell well tho. I owned a 91 Dodge briefly and it just seemed to be lacking in quality throughout, so it doesn't surprise me that there are rumors of its demise. I don't think stylists are very in tune to the van owners desires.<BR>Andy.
