In case it wasn't completely obvious, the white car I posted a crappy photo of the other day is now my car.

I drove it today.


I feel like I'm in the lap of luxury. I'm going to make a comparison table:
1983 S10 Blazer1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager Expresso
smelled of gas fumesOnly does so while fueling
allowed exhaust into the passenger cabindoesn't, unless the door is open
~8 mpg~+20mpg
No power mirrorsPower mirrors
Has no passenger side mirrorAll mirrors functional
Tinted WindowsTinted Windows
No back windowBack window
No back windowRear Wipers
Wipers, with intermittent settingIntermittent setting on this car is actually intentional
AM/FM Cassette Stereo with line in via 1/8" patch cableAM/FM radio, no cassette or line in
2 speakersAt least 4
2 door4 (dual sliding doors)
Seats 2-4 depending on number of pop bottles in carSeats 7 with room for lots of empty pop bottles
CarburetorCarb free!
v6 somethingv6 3.3L (?)
Power window (trying to operate the passenger side blows the fuse)Power Windows - all of them even!
A/C and Heat (who needs a compressor though, anyway (IOW: AC setting existed, nothing else did))Dual comfort zone with A/C AND Heat, selectable with pushbutton instead of hand in the dash pulling cables
Car loses all cabin power (lights and accessories) when you hit bumpsOccasionally the power locks go crazy when you hit a bump, but that's probably something obvious
Starts up if you ask nicelyStarts up if you turn key
Grinding noise when you hit bumpsno noise at all. In fact, what bump?
Reeks of gas and other car fluidsReeks of soccer mom
car, go?cargo!
Floor of car contains more oil than persian gulfprobably enough baby puke or something like that to make a baby out of
shares the burden of a rainstormtakes rain like a man

Yea, so as you can see, it doesn't suck. It's actually pretty cool.
