Proposition 2021

Post by MountainManJoe »

Hi folks.

I had a big idea for our Forum, and I want to run it by you for opinions. I am thinking about expanding this Forum to include the Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana vans.

I think it would breathe some new life into the forum, and bring more cross-pollination. Owners of both styles can benefit from each other's knowledge.
The full size vans bear many similarities to the Astro/Safari. For example:
  • Some use the same 4.3L Vortec engine
  • Some use the same 4L60e automatic transmission.
  • The AWD also uses torsion bar suspension
  • The AWD uses the same viscous coupled Borg Warner transfer case as the early Astrofaris (albeit a bit beefier)
  • And of course being vans they are loved by outdoor/camping enthusiasts
Astrofari owners might learn something about the full size cousins, and possible one day add one to the garage. Full size owners could learn something from our wealth of knowledge.

So there it is... something to chew on. Let me know what you think over in the FEEDBACK section. I've created an open topic HERE.
