Ha! I actually get you... I always had a soft spot for these vans. I wish they'd made the shorter versions until the end... somehow I think the short butt with the stubby nose would looke great!
You know what is strange...I always hated the SWB versions, they looked unproportional to me. I really like the long rear overhang look, like someone grabbed the body and pulled it all the way to the end (short front overhang).Originally Posted by paul8488
Wow, it's in great shape.
The only thing it's missing is a set of rims.
We had a 1997 Safari, forest green with a silver bottom. We had a fully loaded SLE. I hated it, it was falling apart. My prents only bought it beacuse we were little kids, but now that we are older they bought a Tahoe in 2003 and in January, we are getting a 2007 Chevy tahoe LTZ in blue, fully loaded.
I am pretty sure it's getting Chrome 17" 5-SpokesOriginally Posted by giagastormer
No, you have to get 24's man.... Then you can put rubberbands on for tires!
You must live close to me. Van Buren Chevrolet commercials are always on TV here in Rochester.

We also had a 97 Safari SLX demo. Fully loaded, started falling apart. My dad traded it in for a 02 Dodge RAM. We also had an 88 Safari SLX SWB. I loved that van. I'm going to get myself one of those from the late 80s. Preferably am 87 with the 5-speed.
I knew there would be at least ONE person who would notice my Van Buren licence frame. To be honest we didn't buy this van from Van Buren (wow sounds kind of repetetive). However, we did get it serviced there a few times so thats why the Van and the Tahoe both have Van Buren Licence Plate holders. I actually don't live close to you, but I am not all that far away either. I live in Franklin Square which is exit 17 off of the Southern State Parkway.Originally Posted by heals120
I love my 2004 Safari AWD, even if it is a bit too thirsty for my daily commutes (so I drive my Bonneville instead).
Great all around vehicle (even if it does have a very "Pre-Lutz" design interior, it still is more attractive than the 2006 Suburban inside, I think) that can do just about any job if you take the time to remove the seats, but at the same time a good, smooth, quiet ride - great for road trips. Much less noisy and tighter than my 2001 Chevrolet Express passenger van.
What HID lights are you getting? I might consider that upgrade someday.

I forgot, my buddy is doing them for me. I will ask him and get back to you.Originally Posted by Ming
Ahh, that takes me back. My family has had many Chevy Astros. My dad bought one in about '87 and had 3 more after that, the last one an AWD honey that I loved. My grandparents had 2 of them, and my unlce is presently on his 3rd I think. Hard to beat for their versatility and toughness while still being small enough to manuver around in the city. Anyway, sweet ride Tahoe. Keep us updated.
Nice van...however, I always liked the regular back cargo doors rather than the "dutch" doors. And AWD was the best, better than any vehicle I have driven to date.
