        I had a 1989 Astro. I went to High school from 2002 to 2006. My freshman year i don't want to drive it. By the end of the year i had tinted the windows and put some rims and put a audio system. It became the ultimate party van. I wish Chevy wolud bring it back

              Awwww! No mention of the composite leaf springs in the rear?
              We had one of these growing up and my mother hated it. But she hated vans. And my dad (a Chevy man from the word go and a mechanic with his own shop) loved it at first but grew to hate it as it needed more and more maintenance hindered by glaring design discrepancies.
              It got to the point where he hated it so much (it still makes me laugh to think about it) he drove it to the local junkyard, went inside and gave them the keys and title.
              He knew the owner of the scrap yard and he pulled the transmission and wheels and crushed the rest of it.

                    Love the size of the cargo van parking in the city, waiting for toyota to sale a cargo van
                    To many mechanical problems with brakes , intake gasket, ect 4.3 needs more power

                        That Astro was a van version of the Chevy Blazer. Same engine and frame. No Caprice parts.

                                    @Justa Hilltopguy it was my dad's car I had an auto I used to neutral drop it 2x a day. I felt like such an ass when I got older. Until I found out my dad did the exact same thing to his dad's car lol.

                                  Bought a ‘96 Safari new off the lot just before getting married. awd, towing pkg, limited (or is it locking) rear diff w .411 ratio, rear ac, Dutch doors etc. The front to rear power distribution was perfect. It really dug into the snow and propelled you forward!

                                  When the head gaskets went (that goddamn GM failing head gasket bs) we chose to abandon it. I’ve regretted that decision thru three Ventures and one Montana. I miss that “Middle Van”!

                                              Ive been driving full sized gmc conversion vans for the past 25yrs. I bought an 04 Safari last yr. I like the safari , pulled out the middle seat and its great I can sleep in it and my rottie loves it with both side windows open and open road. This is the first 6cyl van that ive owned.
