This blog, as you may assume from the title, is about Minivans.
They are the plague of the modern driving world with a misnomer of a name to boot. There is nothing “mini” about a minivan. I guess “hideous child transport vehicle” didn’t go over well with marketing.
Are they convenient? Sure!
Piloted by sane people with a firm understanding of how driving works? I think not!
I will be collecting images of minivans with body damage and attempt to postulate how that damage could have occurred. I was inspired after one day seeing a minivan with the entire roof caved in. “How could this have happened?” I thought to myself? Could it be innocent, like the sound of children’s laugher when they are jumping vigorously on the roof of your new Aerostar? Or could it have been the “man of the house” thinking he could carry his gas generator on his factory supplied roof racks? Was the van rolled off the road and it somehow ended upside down on a large boulder? The world may never get to find out, but we can guess!
Let’s take a journey together as we take an in depth look at the most commonly damaged vehicle known to North America.
