  • 86,000 miles only
  • 6 liter V8. Excellent engine. 
  • Reliable, clean, well maintained
  • Great battery. Starts perfectly. Very reliable.
  • Electric Tow Bar (wired, ready to be connected), A/C (good), power windows, no rust, great bodywork, regularly serviced
  • 5 New tyres, with excellent tread
  • Seats 15 (full set of seats). Seats are very fast and easy to remove, for big loads.

Great, new stuff:

  2. Brand new window tint (professional, all round) - paid $350 - this week
  3. Brand new spark plugs, oil change and filter - paid $100 - this week
  4. Brand new seat covers - this week
  5. Brand new underlay - this week
  6. Brand new carpet - this week
  7. Professionally cleaned throughout - this week - $100

That's $2050 of value, right there!

Only negatives (very minor, but worth mentioning for complete transparency):

  • Exterior: A very, very small dent on one side panel. It is almost invisible to the naked eye.
  • Interior: Original seats (gray leather/vinyl) are a bit tatty (hence seat covers)
  • Interior: Original roof fabric is a bit tatty (might replace)
  • Interior: One interior rear door panel is missing (easy to replace and easy to find cheaply on ebay)

So... with a very small bit of work, and a little bit of tender love and care, this van will be in great shape. Adding possibly 5k to the value. These vans (at this mileage and condition) regularly sell for 15-20k. They also hold their value well and it is easy to find many of these which are going strong at 150, 200, 250,000 miles. Case in point, I recently saw one advertised on a local craigslist, with 260k on the clock, going for 8,500. Enough said. These hold value, work forever and are much loved by all.

I have a very genuine reason for sale - my wife doesn't like driving it and she makes the real rules. She wants something smaller and something that looks a little cooler! Otherwise, we've been very happy with it. It's been great to us and great for the kids.

I am willing to deliver this anywhere (within reason) in the Continental USA for 1,000 extra. Mainly because no-one else seems to do that and I'm up for a road trip.

These vans sell fast. This is in great condition and the buyer will be very happy. Bid in confidence and without delay, this won't hang about!

So tell me matey, what are you waiting for?

Don't delay, stick your bid in now.

Man surprises girlfriend with C7 Corvette

Mon, 07 Oct 2013 17:00:00 EST

How would you react if someone just showed up at your place of work with a new, 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, complete with all the trimmings? While a lot of us would likely be flipping out over the still rare sports car, it's a fair bet many more of us would be responding like Pattie here, whose boyfriend stopped by her work to show her her new C7.
Speechless and shocked as she seems, she does end up taking it out for a drive, despite claiming she wasn't really outfitted to handle the car's seven-speed manual transmission at the time. From the sound of the video, we got the impression that she knew the car was coming, just not that it was anywhere near ready for delivery. It also, as Pattie says, seems like her boyfriend is more excited about the car than she (which, can we blame him?). Take a look down below for the full video of this C7 Stingray delivery.

Watch this creative way to pull a truck's engine

Fri, 08 Mar 2013 16:58:00 EST

Living in an apartment complex has its benefits, but for shade-tree mechanics who like/need to work on their own cars, it definitely has a number of disadvantages. Relatively simple tasks such as brake jobs and oil changes are difficult when you don't have dedicated driveway space, to say nothing of more in-depth repairs... like pulling an engine, for example.
For these types of challenges, a little ingenuity and plenty of muscle are needed to get the job done. Scroll down to watch these four men snatch the V8 out of a Chevrolet K1500 using nothing but a chain, landscape timber and good ol' fashioned brute strength. Good work, gentlemen.

Callaway debuts its new C7 Stingray at National Corvette Museum

Fri, 02 May 2014 14:16:00 EST

Callaway showed off its first tuned version of the 2014 Corvette Stingray at the National Corvette Museum last week, giving the rampant enthusiasts of America's sports car a look at the roughly 620-horsepower, supercharged rocket.
Unlike the Corvette SC610 we showed you back in January, this Stingray packs a fair bit more oomph. Horsepower is only up ten ponies, but torque has jumped from 556 pound-feet to "at least" 600 pound-feet. Neither horsepower nor torque is official quite yet, although Callaway is expecting to know just what its creation can do once testing and validation is completed later this month.
The 6.2-liter, supercharged V8 now boasts a new, three-element intercooler, which Callaway claims only allowed the inlet air temperature to increase by ten degrees Fahrenheit during dyno runs. Previous designs saw a 35-degree-Fahrenheit jump. The exhaust system has also been fettled with, and now is even less restrictive.
