Minivan (Revised With Corrected Information)
I'd take a picture, but I'm in my jammies and it's raining and the car isn't at the house, but in the parking lot at the office. Our ill fated minivan is up for grabs. It is a gray 1997 Dodge Caravan in good condition except for the transmission now, and motor mounts down the road. We had estimates on the transmission of $3000 for a brand new one installed or $1,000 to $1,200 for a rebuild (in Las Vegas)--both good shops. It has a little over 121,000 miles on it, which is one reason we bought it, thinking it still had a lot of good life in it. Now we have a good pickup truck and don't really need the minivan. Anyway, if anyone is in the market for a minivan, we'll sign over the title and you can take it from there. The interior is good. The body has a couple of dents, but nothing serious. Let me know, because if we don't have any takers we'll just donate or put it on Craigs List depending on how much patience I have.
