Summary:

Pictures of this van faded, but the memories don't

Faults:

To maintain balance, the van had two gas tanks, that's why filling up is a hassle.

The van is hard to maintain.

General Comments:

My father bought this van brand new back in 1981, when he was working for the Philippine Government.

Every time my mother, my grandfather, and my siblings (I was not yet born then) would come come to the US for vacation, they would use the van and travel out of town.

The van had a bed and a mini bar. It was like a motor home.

It was a great van for long trips and was very comfortable.

My father sold it in 1990 when he came back to our native homeland.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
