Great article. I've never bought a Saturday paper before. That Dodge minivan out-racing "muscle cars" is hilarious.
I guess that I too, root for the underdog.

Once my husband finally gets his "muscle cars" on the road. I'll have to race him with my Grand Caravan! At least my runs....

I have been driving/racing a turbo van now for about 3 years. It's been the best $800 bucks I have ever spent. It isn't the fastest thing I have ever owned, but it draws more attention and gets more positive response than anything else I have had, and I have owned a lot of different cars.
