That tree did you a favor. GM vans are a pile of junk, with the worst resale value out there. With it totaled out, you don't have to worry about that.

Wow. Your chimney gets knocked down and your vehicle gets crushed by a rather large tree...that had to have been quite a "crash." This woman may need to have her hearing checked...just a suggestion.
boy this makes sense

that's funny my chevy venture has almost 300,000 miles on it and still going strong.
But you're right they don't last long if you DON'T TAKE CARE OF THEM!!!!
if you want a nice resale value try getting yourself a nice 1995 Ford windstar and see about resale value.
YOu can't even PAY SOMEONE TO TAKE THOSE!!!

I totally agree with you My 1990 pontiac van has close to 200,000 miles on it. My oldest son and his brother took it two tracking where four wheel drives were afraid to go. Their friends still speak in awe of it. My youngest inherited it from his brother and is driving it down in Kzoo while he goes to college. Gets him where he wants to go, and the only thing we have had to fix are the brakes and get new tires every once in a while. It has been a great vehicle. Go GM
