Rants and raves from a 40-something semi-burnt-out soccer mom.
They forgot the dog snot on the windows...
I don't think Ford ever intended for a minivan to be abused like ours has. When we go camping - with four kids the trailer, Soccer Mom and I, and usually one dog, lets just say we're pushing maximum weight. Since I coach U8 AND U10, I have to have Size 3 and 4 balls. I'm amazed I haven't made the rear window blow out cramming the ball bags, water cooler, and my sports bag all in bag. There isn't carpet anymore - just a thick layer of brown grass clippings. Trips to Costco to restock the concession stand? The trailer hitch is like 2" off the ground.Oh yeah, when we tore down our ancient garage? We knocked out the sidewalls with sledgehammers and them pulled it all down with the minivan. I need to dig out those pictures somewhere.I see those commercials where the car just disintegrates and falls apart, Blues Brothers style. That'll be us one day soon - probably in the parking lot of some far off soccer complex :)
I no longer have a minivan (in certain circles I actually deny that I ever did - and at the time I required my kids to refer to it as 'the bus' or better yet 'the magic bus'). I traded it in on a grown up car, and when I did, they actually gave me $300 for it, but the paperwork said it was valued at $1 - I told them it had at least that in spare change in it, but they didn't care - I'm sure Merlin the Magic Bus went straight to the crusher.I love pimp my ride, and I love this video - thanks soccer mom!!!
