Au contraire, mon frere!
Sit on down, kids, and let Uncle Coyote tell you a story. When I was
shopping around for my first van, not too long ago, Hoch Motors in Santa
Rosa had one with really low mileage. A '90 Westy. I decided to drive up
to take a look.
Santa Rosa is over an hour's drive from San Francisco, so along the way I
listened to KQED, as I always do when driving. After about 15 minutes, Car
Talk came on. I thought to myself, somewhat whimsically, "I wonder if
they'll talk about Vanagons? If they say something bad, I won't buy this
car." Well, the third caller was a woman who drove a Westy around town
shuttling the kids! My knuckles were white on the wheel, and I leaned
forward in my Golf, as I waited for the brothers' response.
"Hey, those are pretty snazzy! They're much better than minivans... you
actually look hip in one of those!"
I bought the van.
