Someone once asked my father if he didn't feel a little emasculated, driving around in one of those sissified minivans. He said, "I'm the father of eight kids. I don't have anything left to prove."

We just sold our beloved 1992 Astrovan, extended, seats 8 in luxurious Chevy comfort. It had been our recreational vehicle for years, but if we have the bed installed then there is no place for a car seat for Zoey. Really came in handy when all of the grandparents were visiting at the same time! We replaced it with a 1986 VW Vanagon with a pop-top. It only seats 6 with belts, but it sleeps 4!

I'm pg with my 3rd and my mom thinks I need a minivan. Never! Maybe if I had 4 or 5 kids, but not for 3. I'd love to have an extended cab luxury pick-up or a hybrid SUV.

Actually a friend of mine that had her 4th baby recently was amazed to discover that the infant seat for the new baby wouldn't fit.

I'm gonna come out and say it: I love my minivan. We have a Town and Country in which all the rear seats fold into the floor -- a fabulous feature, and one we've used repeatedly. We have as much cargo space as a Suburban. It's a free country, so I don't have a problem with people buying SUVs if they want. But those of us who don't delude ourselves that SUVs are somehow "cooler" than minivans are having the last laugh. :)

OK, so if the minivan is "almost punk rock", please do tell me the musical equivalent of the 12 and 15 passenger vans. Perhaps John Cage or Philip Glass??? The 12-tone system? ;-)
