Found a really clean short wheelbase Aerostar van up the street cheap. Is this a van taboo? Never see them listed. Only reason I am considering is I have a set of big and little draglites 5x4.5 I want to use and it would be different.. opinions, or insults it is all good..let it rip 😎


When in doubt..get the sawzall out..

I have had Friends who owned a few, one a Tile Helper who was Art McFaul's, (Mac)s SIL. As you all know Mac drove Vans as work vehicles exclusively, and he approves the Aerostar. Can't go wrong if it's been Mac approved!

I see no reason why a V6 Ford Aero would not stand up to an Astro comparison. And, it's a Shorty! I'd do it in a heartbeat, always liked the Aeros, and I am not a Ford Guy pics

I like the shape of those and have seen a few rare panel Shorty Aeros, even with windows they’d be cool.

I personally would love to see a resurgence in some of these cool older smaller vans. Most everything now that’s a small van is so ugly and even these quirky 80s vans had some style, especially when people trick them out.
