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....

Now you know how moms can run kids here and there so quickly~~

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.
