I had an '83 Econoline years ago when we lived in Savannah, but mine had the 300in 6 cylinder in it. It made too many beach runs to count and was very reliable. I know vans are out of style now, but they're still cool to me. Put everything you want in the back of it, and whenever you need something, just hit the brake pedal and it'll hit you in the back of the head...
Plus, if it ever breaks down, it'll also make a handy storage shed...
