My friend Jevon read an article making the case for the minivan and rightly so felt he needed to share it with me. Why? Yes I drive a purple minivan.
I inherited the vintage 1998 machine from parents when it became surplus top them and I was expanding my DJ business. I was riding all over the place and even occasionally traveling out of market for gigs and needed to truck my turntables and PA. At first I was skeptical but over the years that I’ve had it, I have learned to love it. Maybe you drive a minivan, maybe your friends give you the gears…this editorial is for you.
“I was talking to a friend with two children about what cars she wanted, and she freely admitted that when she rented a minivan, her life was measurably easier. Driving the minivan proved to be a fantastic automotive experience. But she personally owns a Toyota RAV4, one of the most popular crossovers sold today.
When I asked her why she deals with a car that, on pretty much every metric that matters, is worse than a minivan, she said something that I’ve heard many times before: She’d never buy a minivan, because that would mean she’s “giving up.””
For us minivan drivers out there, this editorial is so good! Viva la Minivan!
Here’s a picture of me changing the tire on my minivan the other day. Replacing the tire? Cheaper than my crossover.
